Earlier this month, in collaboration with University of California, Irvine we launched the UCI x Flatiron School Online Web Development Program. This for credit certificate program leverages our existing Online Software Engineering curriculum to help people elevate their careers and enter the technology industry as software engineers.
Interested students can choose from two different formats:
UCI Division of Continuing Education and Flatiron School will offer people the ability to learn in-demand programming skills either through a new accelerated web development online program or by enrolling in individual 10-week classes.
The Web Development Accelerated Program teaches the programming skills needed to become a Web Developer in just 10 months. Students who enroll in this program will receive a 12-month WeWork hot desk membership, which provides online students access to a global campus of learners and tech professionals. Graduates of this program will also be eligible to receive a certificate from the UCI Division of Continuing Education consisting of 17 units of credit.
The Individual 10-week classes are available to students who are unable to commit to the full 10-month program. This option offers students the ability to pick and choose classes that fit their personal interests and goals; allowing them to test out if a career in coding is the right fit for them and whether or not they'd want to go deeper into learning specific programming languages. Delivered over 10 weeks, each online, these credit-bearing classes will offer live virtual office hours and technical support at predetermined times.
We’re kicking off in-person events and webinars this week where people can learn more about this new program. Classes start soon on October 7, so now is the perfect time to sign up for one of these events, learn more, and enroll!
