What you'll learn in this engineering training:

We call it intense for a reason. Over 14 weeks, you'll touch on the basics of HTML and CSS before immersing yourself in the world of software engineering with tools like JavaScript and Ruby on Rails. Along the way, you'll learn UX design fundamentals that will take your portfolio to the next level, and project management skills that keep you and your team on track. Designed to jumpstart your career, this program meets 5 days per week and requires 15-20 hours of self-guided project work outside of the classroom each week. We recommend that you clear your calendar and prepare yourself to be immersed in this transformational experience.
