Honestly, the best school you could go to for engineering is North Carolina State University. They have a TERRIFIC engineering college there!! I went there for a semester, not for engineering, and that’s what the whole college prepares you for..engineering. That is why i had to leave. I wasn’t an engineering major. Also, one of my friends I made there is doing chemical engineering and he LOVES it.

Virginia Tech Hokies! I’m an engineering grad there (though from the Industrial Engineering field). VT has a great all around engineering program. I’ve taken classes in the CEE (Civil and Environmental Engineering) department and they were great with good professors. Plus Blacksburg is a great town, and the football games are a lot of fun.

Your NY school may help you if your looking to work up there when you get out, but VT’s engineering network for finding jobs is great throughout the east coast and particularly in the Washington DC area.

Software Engineering Resume Builders?

Question by ssjgeon: Software Engineering Resume Builders?
I’m currently a sophomore at wvu (west Virginia University) pursuing a dual degree in computer science/computer engineering, and I need to start buffing up my resume…..

Now…I know all the stuff that you would initially want to say, internships or work on an open source project…etc

What I want to know is advice on securing these resume builders. I’m finding it pretty difficult to find internships to apply for…any advice on where to look for some, or have any suggestions on someplace I might want to apply.

I also would like to know if getting involved in the open source community actually makes any difference on a resume, and if so I’d appreciate any tips on getting started in the community.

If you have anything else that I’m leaving out that could help that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all!

I dont know about internships (maybe dean whitter lol) but you can get your resume done professionally for about £50, my advice to you would be fake it till you make it, companies are looking for grads with atleast 6-12months work experience so tell them you’ve got it and you’ll be away. as for the open source thing if could tell them what you have made and it were part of everyday software they used they would be impressed. just my uneducated 2 cents..

Do I have a big chance to get into Virginia Tech and their College of Engineering?

Question by : Do I have a big chance to get into Virginia Tech and their College of Engineering?
My Background:

I took Algebra 1 in 7th grade.
Geometry, Earth Science, Spanish 1, and Keyboarding in 8th grade.
Algebra 2/Trignometry, Biology, World History 1, Honors English 9, Spanish 2, PE/Health 1, with 1 lunch break for each A day and B day in 9th grade.
Math Analysis, Chemistry, AP Human Geography, Honors English 10, Spanish 3, PE/Health 2, with 1 lunch break for each A day and B day in 10th grade.
AP Calculus AB, AP Environmental Science, AP US History, CADD 1, and no lunch breaks on either day in 11th grade.
I am currently taking AP Statistics, Physics, AP Government and Politics, AP English Literature, CADD 2, and no lunch breaks either.
The CADD (Computer Aided Drafting and Designing) courses are very advanced in my area and there isn’t many people in the course. I have to go to a technology center just to take it. We use the latest software such as AutoCAD 2010 and Inventor. My Junior year we did mechanical stuff while this year we are doing architectural stuff. It also counts as 3 classes per year.
I played JV football my freshman year and the other 3 years are on Varsity.
Football team captain my senior year.
I worked at Chick Fil A for 3 months due to football.
My GPA is a 3.678 with me ranked at #73 out of 441 students.
Our grading scale is: 94-100 A 86-93 B 78-85 C 69-77 D Below 69 E
My SAT reading score is a 470 and my math was a 580
And if this is also considered:
I’m an Asian male.
I live in Virginia.
I will be the first in my family to go to college

Everything was fine until I saw your class ranking and SAT scores. Ouch!

By all means apply to VPU but have backup plans. Determine which schools are likely to admit you and apply to a few of them as well so that you have choices.

One last thing – are you fluent in another language? If so, make sure you mention that in your application. Also, hone your skills in that language so that you speak at a high level – grammatical and correct in both speaking and writing. That is a great enhancement to your college application.

Software Engineering Education: SEI Conference 1988 Fairfax, Virginia, USA, April 28-29, 1988. Proceedings (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)

This volume contains the proceedings of the 1988 SEI Conference on Software Engineering Education. The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is a United States government-funded research and development center operated by Carnegie Mellon University. Its principal responsibility is to accelerate the reduction to practice of modern software engineering techniques and methods. An annual activity of the SEI is the SEI Conference on Software Engineering Education. The purpose of the conference is to promote enhanced software engineering education in the academic, industrial, and government educational communities, and to promote interactions among educators in these three communities. The 1988 conference included refereed papers, panel discussions, reports and demonstrations from the SEI. Special emphasis was placed on master’s degree level software engineering curricula, the content of software engineering courses, and the introduction of software engineering into undergraduate computer science curricula. The proceedings contain fifteen refereed papers, the keynote address, and a report on curriculum recommendations from the SEI. This volume is particularly useful to software engineering and computer science educators in both the academic and industrial communities.
