The creme de la creme of graduates come from Ivy League universities, while the best tech firms can be found in Silicon Valley. Thus, it makes sense that these tech firms will get their employees from these prestigious schools. However, a recent study revealed that this is not the case.

HiringSolved, an online recruitment company, recently made an analysis to find out which universities send the most graduates to tech firms in Silicon Valley and their findings might be surprising to a lot of people. They got their data from 10,000 public profiles of tech workers that were hired and promoted in 2016 until the first two months of 2017.

Here are the top 10 universities that have graduates hired by the top 25 tech firms in Silicon Valley.

University of California, Berkeley

Stanford University

Carnegie Mellon University

University of Southern California

The University of Texas at Austin

Georgia Institute of Technology

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

San Jose State University

University of California, San Diego

Arizona State University

According to the recruitment firm, the top two universities on the list, Stanford and Berkeley, came as no surprise since their administrators and faculty have strong ties with the major tech firms in the Valley. Add to that the fact that both are the major educational institutions when it comes to technology and engineering.

However, the major universities on the list have one common factor that makes them attractive to tech firms - a big number of tech and engineering graduates. For example, the University of Texas has round 50,000 enrollment while the University of Arizona has around 72,000.

Aside from the top universities that get hired most by Silicon Valley, HiringSolved also predicted the most likely job titles that new graduates can apply to. The top three jobs are Software Engineer Interns, Software Engineer, and Business Development Consultant.
