whiteSparrow211276dI used to think so in college as well. But when I started working for companies, I saw that most don't even have time to properly teach their own staff, much less go out in colleges and build the next tech graduates
I'm very interested in a case study of a company who did that if you know of any!
Djanjo511276dThis is a really good idea, much better than the useless classes they force students take
Python4368276dWe actually have a course like this in our 2:nd year. Around 50 companies come and pitch their ideas and then around 15 groups get to choose one they want to work with. And it's ranging from companies like Twitch, EA games and SAAB.
GreenH134273dI think to this to work correctly you need someone to guide the students with feedback and some tech knowledge all the way til the end. Sadly, or at least on what I saw in college, this doesn’t happen, because the people needed to do the job doesn’t have the time ( they work too ) and don’t really care if the students get any useful experience, they just focus on finishing the project, one way or another.
phkel40261dWe do have the same thing in our first year. But mainly the “companies” are from the school. Other teachers needing some programme or application but I think it’s great first experience. :)
