Class Format

While every day is a little different, students can expect consistency. Half of the day, Monday through Friday, students are in class learning to code through lectures, in-class assignments, and live coding sessions. The other half of the day (or more) is spent in lab time, getting specialized attention from instructors and TAs and honing development skills—all preparation to land a high-paying job as a software developer. Four Fridays are dedicated to project presentations and our Career Development Curriculum, which prepares students for their job search.
