Since 3 different agencies contacted me yesterday about this (2 called, all 3 emailed) I think they're grasping for anyone for these. I didn't talk to anyone, just tried to understand the engrish message. But, if you are out of work, it is probally better than nothing.

Take your pick of which agency to contact. I guess there is a change these are different positions, it seems like the same one to me.

who here works at State? since i'm job searching, figured i'd open up to relocation (i'm in charlotte right now).

are salaries at State (universities in general) competitive? i figure probably not but i really like the idea of working in higher education and doing so at my alma mater would be a pretty neat bonus.

i should never say never, but god help me may i never have to take a position that will accept 4 years of experience in lieu of a bachelor's degree.

^, ^^ yeah that's what most Wake Tech dropouts and CS majors say.

because they're the only ones who seem to think that sitting in a cube for 4 years, doing some minor PHP or Ruby development is somehow equivalent to a four-year degree from an accredited college of engineering

this is what annoys me with these so-called "software engineers" . they're a dime a dozen, and most of them (at least out here on the west coast) don't even have degrees. they're all self-taught or maybe 2 years of junior college.

now they just cluster around places like MSFT and Amazon, and drive wages down for you Comp Sci folks who actually did complete a degree.

but whatever, i dont compete in that space. I entertained it briefly, but 2 months as a MSFT contractor was enough for me

here we go again with joe trollin, acting like his degree from state is worth something. in computer science, as far as actual employee value, experience definitely outweighs a degree. I see so many coming out that "know" (halfway remember) 3 semesters of java, general idea of some data structures, and no concept of working with others and making clean/maintainable code that someone would want to spend money.

a caveat to my post is that there are a lot of fine csc grads from ncsu I've met and went to school with, but I'd say their skill and extensive knowledge largely came from time and effort spent outside of mandatory studies.

i don't, for a minute, deny that experience is valuable. my experience is what allowed me to negotiate for the highest pay range within my job title's scale in a very competitive industry

but to suggest 4 years of experience is equivalent to a BS, would be laughable if it wasn't sadly indicative of the short-term thinking that plagues so many businesses today.

it also shows how that many so-called software engineering roles are readily filled by technicians and other non-degreed persons.

and i'm just glad that my engineering background allows me the luxury of not having to compete in that space.

an engineering degree from NCSU is, in fact, fairly valuable. Even as a Tier II college, the engineering programs at State are well-regarded due to the COE reputation as serious research institution.

CS ... eh, not so much. Unfortunately, even Carolina is known to have a more rigorous CS program

yeah their grad program is highly regarded. but their undergrad is nothing. in fact, i was offered a decent scholarship to go to UNC, but I chose State instead b/c the closest thing UNC had at the time was a "programming certificate" not even a minor. probably would have been better off there anyways. I learned jack squat in the CSC program. Fortunately I'm a somewhat intelligent guy and had already been programming for a few years so I've been able to have a fairly successful career in software development anyways. I still remember the two chicks on my senior design project. They seriously could barely write a for loop. pretty sad

[Edited on March 9, 2009 at 2:40 PM. Reason : i don't know the current state of UNC's undergrad program. it's probably better than State's]

And on paper they appear to be just as qualified as you and joe because they too have an engineering degree from State. So by his logic they're a better candidate than someone with 4+ years of real world experience.

no, they don't. a CS Degree != Engineering Degree.

FWIW, im not bashing on all CS grads. there are many (from NCSU and otherwise) who are intelligent, motivated professionals. the problem with CS, unlike say electricla or mechanical engineering, is that so many companies will hire non-degreed technicians to fill their mid-level CS functional roles.

But Golovko, IIRC you never even went to NCSU, anyhow. What's your motivation for putting your dog in this fight?

okay, disclosure time: how long were you at NCSU, what program and where did you transfer to?

and no, you're wrong: experience will never obviate the need for the foundations, espeically in engineering. You go try and get a P.E. license, okay? otherwise, everyone will just go to a 2-year trad school. you'd like that, I'll bet?

look, im not saying experience doesn't count. Of course it does. A lot. i know some old guys who are grandfathered in as "associate engineers" with their 20 - 30 years of experience. but while they have a vast knowledge in specific products and processes, they are lacking in some engineering foundations.

so they learn to work within the system but have difficulty adapting when the system changes too quickly. for instance, when a product line disappears due to EOL or obsolescence, technology changes require new or expanded skill sets, or new processes require new techniques. they have to become gurus at some niche aspect, and hope the need for their particular skill will have longterm demand.

Exactly. Experience gives you great skill and an ability to execute better than someone with only an education. However, an education gives the ability to change skills much easier than someone without an education.

well, its no guarantee but its a pretty safe bet that if the student applied himself, made good grades, and got a degree from a respected university, that having gotten a university degree, whether it was within a 4, 6, 10, 25 year increment, that he will have a general base of knowledge that will greatly enable him to understand the underlying principles beyond what he is directly exposed to in his day to day performance of a particular task.

^ and that they can learn new technologies while multitasking in a high-pressure time-sensitive environment.

and that they can communicate scientific facts in a professional manner to senior personnel and executive management at a moderately effective level.

and that they have at least some exposure to to classical liberal studies that require a person to be able to employ critical thinking skills while considering unfamiliar perspectives on a wide variety of issues.

etc...

and sorry, Golovko, but your average Cartaret County Community College diploma graduate of the computer technology certificate program... they don't have those skills, unless they've picked them up on their own initiative.

i mean, you will personally probably do alright with your trade diploma, but the unfortunate fact is most businesses put real value on the skills i described, and you're going to find that you hit that glass ceiling pretty quick.

joe_schmoe: I don't really know what you're talking about. I'm a software professional witb a BSEE and a BSCpE from NCSU. I don't know of any half-serious software house that even entertains hiring for a Software Engineering position without a BS in a technical field. The further you get away from CSC and Engineering the more experience you require.

Also, you all have really blurred or straight up ignored the difference between Software Engineering and Programming. Any monkey can pick up a programming book and become a technically proficient programmer. However, becoming a professional Software Engineer is something different entirely. I'm not sure how much stock I put in any of your arguments unless you can clearly bifurcate the difference between a programmer/developer and a software engineer.

there is no formal process to define Software Engineer. maybe your company does, and that's great. but it's totally subjective and the definition varies from company to company. Software Engineering has very little enforced body of standards, or any sort of body to define professional qualifications

In my experience out on the west coast, from Seattle down to the Bay area, any PHP or Ruby on Rails programmer with no degree whatsoever can call themselves a "Software Engineer"

and they can compete for probably 80% of the Software Development Engineer jobs, even including Microsoft.

it only becomes strict when a CPE or an EE degree is required.

since you have an engineering degree and you work for a company that requires such, i think you are missing the wide latitude that SDEs and SDETs have in professional qualifications in the software industry at large.


( \/ \/ i will admit my real-world experience is heavy on the west coast, and light on the east coast. it could be a significantly different culture back east...)
