This summer was my first internship and the developers at the company weren't using any version control.

It was literally painful to see the engineer (my mentor) make backups of each file before changing anything in it.

I really do feel, version control should be included in our courses as well.

    That's exactly why college CS grads have a tough time finding jobs. They don't teach modern tech

    @madskills tell them about SVN. It's a bit easier than git, it'll help them with their builds using bamboo or docker (git will work too). SVN is less flexible and simpler than git IMO.

    I prefer git for personal use, but SVN for corporate company use

    @madskills my advice to you is keep on doing what your doing.

    Keep advocating modern tech and introducing it to companies. Or at least lobbying for it.

    You'll be fine as long as you don't take the schools word and the schools methodology as gold. Chances are it's way out of date and depreciated.

    The degree will help you look "impressive" but just keep doing what your doing and done rely on the school to teach you this craft

    Well, with that being said, you should get out of this place. that statement says a lot about this company/thing's culture. I'm not you, I don't know what your gains are (money or something else), but I think THAT was a (quite clear) bad sign.
