This is a good website to get some information about SystemVerilog, Verilog, and PERL (and more).

Here are the few thing most electrical engineers should know

Name Information Useful Links
Verilog, VHDL, System Verilog, System C Hardware Description Languages (HDL). You should know at least Verilog or VHDL Details verilog information can be found here. Check the e-books at Library catalog. There are many books about HDLs. Here is a nice verilog tutorial.
Modelsim, SynaptiCAD There are many compiler and simulators. Modelsim is well known one. You can get Modelsim PE edition for free.

MODELSIM

SynaptiCAD

Xilinx, Altera These are the most popular FPGA and CAD tool makers. You can get their tools for free. Just register and download the software. These are pretty big download (over 4 GB).

Xilinx (ISE)

Altera (Quartus II)

Digilent If you want to get FPGA board for experiments this is the place to go. For less than 50 dollars you can start working with FPGAs and start working on experiments.

Digilent FPGA Boards

Same site has some great classes. It could be useful.

Some Programming Languages C, C++, PERL, Python, Tcl/Tk, Ruby You do not need to know all of them but know at least one very well. I suggest you to know C, C++ and/or Python. Intel in Austin uses PERL. You can go to ACTIVESTATE and download PERL, Python, Tcl/Tk interpreters free. There are many editors you can get it online. Just search Google "PERL or Python editors" and you will see some open source and some paid one.
MATLAB, Mathematica These are great tools for learning and design. For a 99 dollars you can get MATLAB student version and few toolboxes. They are identical to commercial version
