You guys are in the heart of bay area and you guys all share the same projects on your resume ? When someone tries to talk sjsu up because of the location, if that's true, then why dont the students work/intern at Uber , lyft, Airbnb, lime, Robinhood, Pinterest, and all the other young companies as software engineers ? Why don't they come to you ?

    I went to Santa Clara and that school isn’t doing much better. Problem is every company feels entitled to Stanford grads.

      @FSCK you know you can’t lie on your resume, so trolling about that isn’t particularly clever.

      There was some research showing that 86% of Stanford grads are 10x engineers.

      Actually surprisingly well. They even matched my airbnb offer, which is the highest in bay area nowadays. I heard they are also revamping their comp policy recently, hence explains the good offer.

    I took cs221 last term. Midterm was 31 pages and average grade was 40/100. Tom Mitchell would have barely scored 50/100. You learn the most working on projects. Stanford got it right! But I agree SJSU sucks they all have same resumes (look for the autonomous toy car that they all do)

      Yeah Stanford got it right. That’s why kids are getting their CS degrees now and supplementing with bootcamps

      If new cs grads from bay area colleges are seriously supplementing with bootcamps, almost nobody is going to go to college for software jobs in a decade

    SJSU is terrible. I would not recommend it to anyone unless it’s your last choice. The quality of students there holistically are terrible. I mean state school is the lowest tier. I’m not saying 100% are incompetent but a safe 90-95%. Actually the head of CS department said he met with some CTO’s that said SJSU graduates were most unprepared for work environment out of college.

    Source: I graduated from there myself. I only went there because I had to support my family financially while putting myself through school. I started a startup 4 years ago and exited. I got an MBA from UPenn last year so it’s been helping me erase SJSU from my memory, but I still get nightmares sometimes.

    Look into hardware companies in SV. SJSU grads are everywhere in that part of the world. That's recent grads to alumni from the last 30 yrs.

    I don’t remember any good engineers coming out of Sjsu. Of course not everyone is bad but what I found were mediocre

    Where does SAP get its engineers from?

  • I didn't go to SJSU. But I see a decent amount of SJSU grads in FAAMNG. Go check in Linkedin

    Also, Stanford students still get into top tech companies even with a biology major coz they went through a bootcamp

      They got into Stanford, so they must be good at something.
