What our learners are saying

"This program helped me to develop both technical skills and also soft skills. Those are very important when you are looking for a job and applying for it. Career Services have lots of professional teams to help, support, guide, and advise all students who are still attending the class and the students who graduate from this program also."

"I wanted to switch careers into something more exciting for me. Tech is very interesting and web development seemed like an ideal place to start. The program was challenging but fun, very educational, and allowed me to pursue something that I genuinely enjoy as a career. My new role as a Junior Web Developer with very little experience already has much better compensation than my previous career, and I actually enjoy the work I'm doing. Overall, the program has definitely impacted my life for the better."

"Initially, I enrolled in the program to build a website for my previous company, but now I am taking it further and hoping to pursue my own venture in web development. Being exposed to web development and learning more about the industry has put me on a new career path."
