Cadence San Jose was happy to host a group of undergraduate students from Carnegie Mellon University. Through the Real World Engineering program, students from CMU get the opportunity to visit different companies in Silicon Valley, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C. In October 2018, the students visited our Pittsburgh campus; Elias Fallon, Software Engineering Group Director was the host. This year, they chose to visit the Cadence San Jose campus during their Silicon Valley trip.
The students got to be a part of a fun and informative event, which even included an introduction and Q&A session with CMU alumni and President of Cadence, Anirudh Devgan! Anirudh spoke about his experience as a CMU student, how it shaped his career, and answered questions from students. They were highly engaged and inspired by his words of wisdom.
They also participated in a roundtable discussion where they could ask questions about the different career paths at Cadence. There were 2 Cadence representatives at each discussion group to answer questions related to their expertise: recruiter, application engineer, R&D engineer, product engineer, and product manager. Students were able to ask questions about which career is right for them and how to pursue it.
The Real World Engineering Program started at CMU in 2012 in an effort to connect students with industry in a variety of ways: networking events, mentoring programs, industry tours, and more. The students are selected based on their essay submission and their professional goals. The Real World Engineering Program helps students make better, more informed decisions about their future career as an engineer. We look forward to getting to meet with more CMU students and playing a valuable role in launching their careers!
