Education & Business

This Fall, West Valley College and San Jose State University are hosting five Brazilian students from Universidade Federal de Itajubá and INATEL in Minas Gerais, and FUCAPI in Manaus, Amazonas. Besides attending classes at either WV or SJSU, students have an opportunity to visit various Silicon Valley companies and organizations.

On November 20, students visited Hewlett-Packard Company. Software System Engineer for Business Critical Systems, Ahmad Rostami, gave the group a tour of HP's facilities in Cupertino. Students had a chance to see the latest laptops and printers and learn about HP's history, founders, culture and how it became one of the largest technology companies in the world. Thanks, Ahmad, for hosting our group!
