Chart a New Career Direction with a Boot Camp

Did you know

layer Boot camps with edX can provide you with the skills and support you need to move ahead professionally.

Technology moves fast, and with it, so does the job market. 

In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), jobs in the computer and information technology sector are projected to grow by 15% between 2020 and 2030, much faster than the projected growth for all other occupations. The skills that were relevant and cutting-edge 10 years ago are being replaced by advanced knowledge, causing many individuals to wonder whether it’s time to find another job or return to the classroom — or both.

A boot camp is an excellent way to gain in-demand skills in a variety of technical topics, focusing on real-world applications through hands-on project work and engaging class discussions. In around 12 to 24 weeks, learners work through challenging, market-driven curricula while leaning on instructional staff for support.
