The truth is, you don't need a CS degree to be a SWE. Many of these students use tech seed as a stepping stone to other opportunities after 2 years.

A: Don't need CS Degree to be a SWE

.... because u dont need it? u dont need a degree in comp sci specifically to clear leetcode and SWE fundamentals.

nothing is stopping u from going on the grind on your own effort (eg. taking cs mods on ur own, online courses, self study etc.)

FFS, they dont even teach u the languages themselves in cs. you are expected to self learn. that doesnt mean the barrier to entry is low however, maybe for SEED la but certainly not for FAANG.

You sound like a retard.

The reply was pretty clear, you don't need a tech degree to be work in a tech role, that is why you see so many non tech degree holders in SEED.

I believe DBS SEED programme specifically allows this.

I checked their website and it says

Will i be considered if i do not have STEM Degree?
If you do not have a root degree in STEM, but have a minor/taken a few STEM modules, you are welcomed to apply.

So yeah, going by that, anyone in whatever field should be able to apply and get in as long as they have taken a few mods in programming or IT-related topics.

No this isn't true at all.

Almost all junior tech roles at any reputable company worth joining requires a CS degree at minimum. It's written in their JD and is a requirement to even get an interview.

*reputable company* btw, if you want to join some F500 IT Consulting company then of course, they accept anyone... I'm talking about actual reputable tech companies like Microsoft, FAANG, Chinese tech like ByteDance, Shopee and other companies like ZenDesk, etc that have a history of paying tech roles well.

I've not seen any non-CS SEEDers who completed 2 years actually join any of these companies on LinkedIn using their premium search so I'm pretty confident in what I said but feel free to prove me wrong.

I'm quite sure that they complete their 2 years, convert to Associate perm and stay for a few years before going to bigger banks ( Standard Chart, JP Morgan, Goldman Sach, etc ) ... which makes sense because hopping from one bank to another bank is easier.

If you wanted to hop from bank to tech, why not just join Visa / Paypal / NCS Nucleus and many other tech grad programs in the first place? It's a lot easier + better pay anyway.

Also just an FYI, this "SEED" isn't exactly a "tech" programme even though that's what it says. I just checked with a few people I know in the program and they are learning banking stuffs for the most part, nothing about tech stacks or dev work. So be wary when you join...

As an accting degree holder I just laugh at the long post above

Dude, u know how many jhk go and take the Acca courses and just directly take over the accounting jobs from local student with a legit uni degree (from ntu/bud/smu)

Donít be mad. Like accounting, swe is just another skill. Doesnít mean the BTE . Ppl can be good(or really bad) just by training themselves and without going for a bachelor degree

Lololol delusional.

Bootcamp / non cs to cs roles only happens in the US

Good luck. Accounting is a garbage field that any monkey can learn. Tech / cs on the other hand requires actual experience.
