3B also had Feedback Controls (SE 380), the most disliked course, which explains why it was the hardest term

PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE
Python is the most popular programming language among SE students.Python’s versatility for back-end web, scripting, and especially machine learning could explain why it is so popular in our class. Many of these disciplines are highly in-demand in the software engineering, making Python an ideal general purpose language.

Java continues to be very popular since it is commonly taught as students' first programming language in high school.

Many companies hire web developers for co-op, which could explain why JavaScript, a scripting language for the web, is so popular. It also happens to be the most popular language amongst all developers according to a StackOverflow survey.

COOKING
Over half of students cook every week.In other words, many of us have a lot of experience cooking. How good is our cooking? That’s a completely separate question that may be better left unanswered.

These results vary depending on whether students are on a study or co-op term, since many companies cater meals during weekdays.

SLEEPING
Software engineers may have a reputation for being nocturnal, but most students aren’t night owls.In fact, 72% of students usually sleep before 1AM. However, some students do still prefer sleeping late, possibly because they focus better at night, or maybe they like gaming very late.

5:00AM-6:00AM might sound crazy, but then again, SE students willingly go to 24 hour coding events called hackathons.

POST-GRADUATION PLANS
As of 5 months before graduation, 77% of students already have an offer, and 15% of students are still looking for a job.7 students are planning to do graduate studies after graduating. Although most of the class plans to join the workforce immediately, 34% of students are considering grad school in the future.

Even though 80% of the class has worked in California, less than half of students have chosen to live in California after graduating. Although California is perceived by many as the place to be for software engineers, seeing the gap in the conversion rate suggests that there are many other great places for software engineers such as East Coast Canada, East Coast US and Pacific North West US.

老中孩子能进滑大,可喜可贺。
最近得到的几个信息,没有最强,只有更强。老中还需努力啊。
有人有蓝翔说法,话虽然不好听,但有一点道理。

虽然很长,但是很有意思。对那些孩子想进入滑铁卢学习的家长有很多参考价值。
