Are you referring to a technical college vs. bachelor degree program at a University? I totally agree with you there - that type of college is definitely more honed on learning direct skills (a polytechnic, for example) but depending on the program, a university might offer a blend of pure theory and pure skill depending on their accreditation.

Would you say that from a college graduate you expect more of a "get it done" mentality? Versus a university graduate who might be more broad in their knowledge and needs specific training?

 

Yes along those lines. I was using it as more of an example. A software engineer is someone who knows the theory rather than someone who just knows how to get it done.
