This question kind of splits into two separate questions, but they are related. I'll try to keep it away from a strictly legal question.
I'm currently an undergraduate Software Engineering major and am currently gaining a second year of internship experience. After graduation, I will need to seek full-time employment opportunities as a developer. I want to build a higher quality portfolio to demonstrate my knowledge.
Can I include the source code from school projects in this portfolio along with personal projects, giving credit to classmates or professors who helped? From what I have observed, the university I attend repeats the programming assignments every 2-3+ years, but with a slight twist each iteration. However, I guess the online source code could be a "partial solution" to these assignments if found. Is this considered cheating of some sort?
If so, should I? Do employers care about what programming assignments were completed in college to help solidify concepts, or are they more interested in what personal/workplace projects I have been a part of?
