    How good does it look coming out of Cal Poly with a computer engineering degree? Many job oppurtunities?

    Job opportunities for CPE graduates are plentiful. The key is to land good internships, especially summers between 2nd/3rd and 3rd/4th years. Silicon Valley tech companies heavily recruit Cal Poly students at job fairs every quarter. The key to a good internship? A good GPA. That tells companies that you're willing to work hard. You can easily make $10K in the summer as an intern.

    A CPE graduate a couple of years ago turned his Capstone project into a company that Google bought for a couple million. A different CPE student in my son's class ('13) will make over $100K at Google when he graduates this spring. My son had an offer letter in hand a couple of months ago from the company where he interned last summer.

    What's the best way to look for internships?

    Attend job fairs and events on campus when people from various companies come to speak.
