Each fall the Student Engineers’ Council organizes an amazing job fair called Engineering Expo for majors in the College of Engineering, including computer science majors. This year more than 250 companies will show up, including 99 that indicate they want to talk to CS majors about full-time jobs or summer internships. No question this kind of exposure to great companies is one of the major benefits of studying at a school like Virginia Tech.
And about that job market … um … it’s pretty good. We expect to confer about 100 BS degrees in CS this year. There are 99 companies at Engineering Expo who want to talk to CS majors. Seems like a pretty good supply/demand ratio … if you are on the supply side.
