Students receive stipends to aid in housing and living in this time. Companies pay for you to learn and start a career. We take the most important part of a CS Degree, the most valuable learnings in your first 2-3 years on the job and train recent grads in a project based, 15:1 student-teacher ratio for an entire year!
