Hi Cory! Thanks for signing up for the program! It’s going to be a lot of fun.
I think those educational requirements are mostly just a resume screen. They’re a way of saying, “We’d like candidates to have some expertise in autonomous vehicles.”
Based on conversations we’ve had with hiring managers at many different employers, there is a huge demand for autonomous vehicle engineers and companies are pretty excited about the students going into the Udacity program. So our expectation is that graduates from our program will be able to circumvent some of those resume screens.
