UConn Stamford to offer coding boot camp for adults

The University of Connecticut School of Engineering is teaming with workforce accelerator Trilogy Education in offering its first coding boot camp aimed at adult learners and working professionals.

The 24-week, part-time program begins on July 30 and will consist of two three-hour evening classes during the week and a four-hour class on Saturdays at the university’s downtown Stamford building at 1 University Place. Participants will also be required to spend a minimum of 20 hours a week on outside projects, homework and experiential learning activities, and those who complete the program will receive a certificate in Full-Stack Web Development from the School of Engineering.

“Our identity at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, is heavily shaped by technology and business,” said Terrence Cheng, director of the UConn Stamford campus.  “Working with Trilogy further strengthens this identity, enhancing UConn Stamford’s ability to meet the needs of our professional communities, while also upholding our commitment to engagement, partnership, experiential learning and economic impact.”
