Are Maxwell's Equations useful or is it just good to know, not need to know?

I generally think of them as requirements -- if you don't know them, you don't know how things work.

I heard probability is applied to communications electronics.

Is Matlab obsolete?

Sure, but so are lots of things: complex analysis, for one.

No. It's state-of-the-art for linear algebra. I don't use it much (and haven't for some years now!) but only because it's not my field. If you work with matrices Matlab is a good tool to have in your belt.

Is Edison better than Tesla?

I heard Edison used Tesla, stole from him, refused to pay him, and threw him away.

Didn't Tesla solve a problem that Edison could not?

What is an oscillator good for?

Does anyone know about Bode plots and design regions?

What's the difference between a derivative and a partial derivative?

What is the difference between Fourier series and Fourier transform, and Laplace transforms?

Now you are acting like a troll.

Start a program of study, perhaps like I suggested before. You will have plenty of opportunities to come across all of those topics.

Most engineers are trolls. It's part of our personalities.

That would be a likely explanation for why I dropped out of a Ceramics degree. That and I thought CES was boring.

I'd like to be one of the hottest engineers in the country.
