New University of Arizona Program Aims to Meet Gap in Tech Throughout Greater Phoenix Market

In an increasingly digital and mobile world, the University of Arizona’s office of Continuing and Professional Education (CaPE) in Chandler is set to launch the UA Coding Boot Camp, a program that will teach students the basics of web-development skills in a span of just 24 weeks. 

 

Across the United States, there are about 50,000 tech jobs that cannot be filled on a yearly basis, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The UA Coding Boot Camp aims to meet this gap while offering students in the greater Phoenix market an opportunity to get certified in the high-paying and high-demand field of web development. 

In addition to its positive impact on Arizona and U.S. markets, the UA Coding Boot Camp also aims to increase the state’s talent pipeline for the foreseeable future.  

 

“Together with Trilogy Education Services, we are providing a critical investment in the future success of our university and state,” said Melissa Vito, UA’s senior vice president for Student Affairs & Enrollment Management, and senior vice provost for Academic Initiatives & Student Success.

“Not only will this program keep our students on the leading edge of workplace and career readiness, we are also developing and producing the talent and soft skills that employers have said they need.” 

The program is set to begin on April 3rd at UA’s Chandler location, located on 125 E. Commonwealth Ave. and will run until September 30th. Students can apply online or by calling (520) 917-1930. To learn more about the UA Coding Boot Camp, visit https://codingbootcamp.ce.arizona.edu.
