I went through Electronics Engineering and built a Midi-CV converter for a eurorack module as a final project. Here's the resources that helped me during that time:

Make: Analog Synthesizer's By Ray Wilson

Music From Outerspace

Electronotes.->I highly recommend the MUSICAL ENGINEER’S HANDBOOK and ELECTRONOTES BUILDERS GUIDE AND PREFERRED CIRCUITS COLLECTION sold there.

Art of Electronics. ->This will be your bible during school.

Midi Standard

Eurorack Mechanical Spec

Eurorack Electrical Spec

Try and build a DIY kit. That will definitely be an easy transition (based on difficulty of the DIY) into the process of building modules/synths.

Refer to the resources pinned to this subreddit.

I would also highly recommend getting to know your professors. If they're teaching electronics, chances are one of them might be into "synths" as well.

Good Luck!

That's interesting. We used Horowitz and Hill as an undergrad and although I didn't continue on the EE track I was under the impression it was the "standard" textbook for introductory electronics. It may be more elementary than the ones you mention. Any thoughts on that text?

Huge warning on their homepage now, https://www.amazon.com/Art-Electronics-Paul-Horowitz/dp/0521... for this price, but mine was sloppy copy.

http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/textbook/ This might be a good place to get started, I am taking a physics electronics advanced lab as an undergraduate in physics, and I have found this textbook to be pretty useful. Also Hororwitz's the art of electronics is probably the best text on electronics, however very dense (1200 pages). There is definately a lot to learn, and this is just getting you started in the electronics of it... idk specifically about tube amps though, but understand circuits is probably going to be a must
