    In terms of post-graduation outcomes, see https://career.berkeley.edu/survey/survey (you can filter by major), although past results may not necessarily reflect future year outcomes if economic and industry conditions are different.

    Does anyone know how prestigious Cal EECS is?

    Extremely.
    Are there good job opportunities in silicon valley?

    Numerous

    Is Berkeley cs reputable? Are there good opportunities after?

    Yes, and yes. (Note CS is not a direct admit.)

    Instate or out of state?

    fwiw: Berkeley EECS is one of the few UC programs that I believe is worth OOS prices.

    Dude, you live in the Bay area. How can you NOT know that Berkeley CS is one of the very best and most prestigious programs in the world?

    What grade are you in?

    I have an anecdote for you. My brother was an EECS major at Berkeley, and in conversation with a Columbia (yep the ivy league school in New York) CS grad who was about the same age, the latter admitted that my brother was FAR ahead in terms of computer knowledge and skills.

    So yes, Berkeley EECS is that good.

    The only Ivy that I would put in the same category as UCLA in CS is Cornell.
