Austin, Texas (PRWEB) June 22, 2017
Until now, technical schools have traditionally been behind some of the newer, leaner institutions when it comes to teaching the top skills one needs to succeed in the tech industry.
As long as we continue to wake up every morning to Alexa’s voice as our alarm, book a ride through Uber, and listen to our life’s soundtrack on Spotify, companies will continue to demand software engineers to build and maintain the apps that power our lives.
“We’ve spoken extensively with employers hiring coding boot camp graduates and found that their worry is that many of the programs that students take are not giving adequate time for a student to absorb and understand why they are doing a task, but typically are just memorizing a process,” shares SCI CEO Jacob Mayhew. “SCI-Tech Academy has developed a program that provides a deeper teaching around each topic and extends the learning time from 12 -18 weeks to 33 weeks.”
And these jobs aren’t going away. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, software developer jobs are expected to grow at a “much faster” rate compared to other professions --17% from 2014 till 2024.
