Often referred to as The Engine that Powers Silicon Valley, SJSU supplies more talent to Silicon Valley than any other public or private university. Its graduates - more than 8,000 new degree holders every year - supply intellectual capital and sleeves-rolled-up talent to industry giants like Apple, Cisco, IBM and HP, as well as many innovative startups on the cutting edge of commerce and technology. Experience working hands on with industry professionals, solving real-world problems, distinguishes SJSU students in a competitive job market. We encourage our students to enhance their learning opportunities with internships and/or related job experience. We continually strive to form valuable industry relationships that strengthen our student’s skillsets and keep SJSU on the forefront of employer’s minds.
