No, it really does not matter what school you attend, as the most important factors are how well you do with the school work, which is an indication to an employer about what kind of employee you will be, and the effort that you put forth in your networking to set up networking connections that will help you throughout your education/career journey.

The most important thing for you to do that will benefit your education journey is to get to know yourself better to determine which career area would most closely match the application of your personality traits and get to know people who are doing what you think that you might want to do, so you can see what they do, how they got there, and see what advice and suggestion they might have for you.
Getting to know yourself and how your personality traits relate to people involved in various career opportunities is very important in your decision making process. During my many years in Human Resources and College Recruiting, I ran across too many students who had skipped this very important step and ended up in a job situation which for which they were not well suited. Selecting a career area is like buying a pair of shoes. First you have to be properly fitted for the correct size, and then you need to try on and walk in the various shoe options to determine which is fits the best and is most comfortable for you to wear. Following are some important steps which I developed during my career which have been helpful to many .
Ken recommends the following next steps:
As I think about the reason I went to college and why I decided to obtain an engineering degree, my primary focus was to A)graduate and B)build a sustainable career. So far I have been able to do both :). I share these points because each individual has to decide what matters to them. If the goal is to get a good job after graduation, often times that means being able to interface with companies that have those good jobs. Sometimes, graduating students have to reach out to those companies...but sometimes, those companies actually come to the schools and interact with students on campus. Tech-related companies tend to sponsor and/or go to on-campus events because they can get closer to graduating students and present themselves in a way that may be appealing to perspective new employees (that is graduating students).
With respect to "prestige", that may be a branding aspect that yes, many colleges/universities can take advantage of. But I encourage you to continue to consider what you like to do, which will directly impact how well you do. Graduating with a degree (tech or otherwise) could be the first step to building a lasting career.
Best of luck to you!
