Learn key concepts from your expert instructor through interactive exercises and collaborative discussion.
Work together with a partner to build your strategic and tactical coding skills and learn from one another.

What the application process looks like
Aptitude for software engineering stems from an innate curiosity about the world and how people interact with it. We don’t admit students, we craft a class: a lawyer, journalist, and pro athlete will approach solutions differently, creating a richer learning environment for everyone involved. All you need is passion and an open mind.
Submit your application. Share a bit about yourself and what’s driving you to start a career.
Speak with an Admissions representative in a non-technical interview. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better. Nothing technical — just a friendly conversation.
The technical review assesses your basic grip of coding and how it interacts with us in our daily lives. Demonstrate interest by completing steps on Learn.co, our learning platform.
Receive your acceptance decision from Admissions. This usually happens within 4 business days.
If accepted, you'll begin course pre-work to prepare for the first day of class.
