Full-Stack Program

Gain the skills to launch a career in web development, from JavaScript to Python. Build websites, APIs, interactive applications, and more.

Why Full-Stack

As a Full-Stack web developer, you will be an integral part of an organization’s business operations. From frontend to backend development you will work with JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, Python, and everything in between. Due to their popularity in the developer workspace, JavaScript and Python will be the languages taught for the frontend and backend of the course.

Data Science Program

Master the basics of machine learning to forecast what’s next and predict patterns from large datasets using Python.

Why Data Science

Data Science has become a popular occupation with Harvard Business Review dubbing it “The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century” and McKinsey & Company projecting a global demand of 1.5 million new data scientists. This track teaches you the knowledge and skills necessary to conduct sophisticated and systematic data analysis using the industry’s most adopted programming paradigms, the R and Python languages.

Big Data Engineering Program

Learn the fundamentals of processing huge and diverse datasets. Design and build a modern big data infrastructure using Hadoop - the most successful distributed framework to date.

Why Big Data Engineering

Making good use of the immense volume of data enterprises generate is one of the key success drivers in both high-tech and traditional industries. Big Data Engineers are indispensable in designing, building, and maintaining the future hardware and software architectures needed for that. In this track you will learn the fundamental computer science concepts behind the most successful distributed framework for big data - Hadoop. You will also provision and configure your own Hadoop cluster in the cloud.

Application Deadlines

Due to an application process that includes personal and technical interviews, we like to give you enough time to prepare for the Program. That’s why we close applications one month before the program start, as you will need time to complete the preparation work. As our classes do tend to fill up fast, we offer early registration discounts to those looking to secure their seats in advance. This discount is applicable to anyone who applies up to two months before the program starts.
