I'm not sure what your experience is with this - but do you know of any differences in Software Development compared to the United States? I could see myself looking abroad one day for work and am curious whether everything seems pretty similar around the world (aside from cultural differences).

Yes, I have no experience with this.
But notice you talking about Software Development, when I study Computer Science.
If there is a work that not depends on the in the country, It will be software development. And science, too.
So from my point of view, software development will be similar in most places in the world, except in places where development culture is fundamentally different, such as developing as quickly as possible and taking out medium quality products.

That may actually be a difference I hadn't realized, a lot of people in thr States who study Computer Science go on to be software developers and I think I assumed similar for other countries too.
I think you're right in your point of view, that seems pretty reasonable. Thanks for the response!

Yes, we all start with the Computer Science basement, and going to work as Software Developers. So you can compare the knowledge of Computer Science between an universities, but where we really learn to program, to compare the learning?

Thank you for asking!

What is the preferred career path among students after graduating nowdays? Is it science? Is it a job in a top IT company (Facebook, Google, Microsoft, e.t.c.)? Starting a startup?

I think the preferred career path is to find a job.
The best graduated will work with the big IT companies, or in startup, and the rest of the students will work in startup-small-medium businesses.

After all, it depends on what the student want and like, so if he has some job offers, he has a privilege to choose what suits him.
