With technology careers in high demand, coding bootcamps have become an increasingly popular method for recent college grads to gain the additional skills needed to jump start a career in technology. Coding bootcamps are short, intense, training programs focused on teaching students the latest, in-demand technical skills.
The average traditional coding bootcamp costs anywhere between $12,000 and $24,000. For many recent grads this cost is not a realistic option, given they may already be facing undergrad student loans. The University of Maryland University College has partnered with a leading talent development company, Revature, to offer UMUC graduates – and soon-to-be-graduates – a no cost option that not only provides hands on coding training, but also launches IT careers.
Revature is at the forefront of innovation and talent development. They provide training to recent college grads – and soon-to-be grads – in enterprise-level, next-gen and niche technology through a world class 12-week immersive, industry aligned coding bootcamp. Revature’s talent development model is among the most inclusive and accessible in the nation. Graduates of the program become Revature professionals and work on innovative, challenging and rewarding software development projects for Revature corporate partners, including leading Fortune 500 companies, government organizations, and top systems integrator.
The bootcamp includes:
- A 12-week immersive, industry-aligned coding training program
- A weekly living allowance
- All books and training materials
- Professional certificates paid for by Revature
- Dedicated industry mentors to ensure your success during the bootcamp and first two years of employment
- ePortfolio to showcase your projects, accomplishments, and certificates
- Guaranteed employment for bootcamp graduates (positions located throughout the U.S.)
Bootcamps are located at Revature’s Reston, VA headquarters, and new bootcamps begin regularly. To be eligible for the bootcamp you must:
- Have graduated in the past two years with a bachelor’s or master’s degree (preferred majors include: Computer Science, Informatics, Engineering, Statistics, Economics, or Mathematics)
- Have some experience with C++. C#, Java or other select languages
- Be a U.S. citizen
