Canada’s Carleton University and Trilogy Education Launch Ottawa’s First Part-time Coding Boot Camp

Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business has launched its first part-time coding boot camp in Ottawa in collaboration with leading workforce accelerator Trilogy Education.

Geared toward adult learners and working professionals, the Carleton University Coding Boot Camp teaches the front-end and back-end skills necessary to become a proficient full stack developer. The 24-week, part-time program will be offered on campus beginning February 4, 2020, with two three-hour evening classes during the week (6:30 to 9:30 P.M.) and a four-hour class on Saturdays (10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.).

Speaking on the newly launched program, Dana Brown, Dean of the Sprott School of Business, said,

“As one of Ottawa’s leading education institutions, we feel a responsibility to bring to market a program that empowers local adults with the latest technology skills in demand by Ottawa employers. This intensive boot camp will be delivered in collaboration with Trilogy Education, enabling us to provide students with a skills-based curriculum, hands-on instruction from industry professionals, and extensive career services.”

According to Randstad, IT was the fastest growing sector in Canada last year and that full stack developer is 2019’s most in demand IT skill set. It is reported that while Canada’s larger cities like Toronto and Vancouver are well known for their tech sectors, Ottawa employers are increasingly hungry for job-ready tech talent. This is where Carleton University felt the responsibility to do something to fill the gap and for its local adults.

Commenting on the outcome that the Carleton University Coding Boot Camp will bring, Greg Calverase, General Manager of Trilogy Education Boot Camps at 2U, Inc., said,

“The technology sector is expanding rapidly in Canada’s capital city. The Carleton University Coding Boot Camp will fill a critical need in the market for tech training and attract further investment in Ottawa’s innovation economy.”

The boot camp program’s curriculum covers the basics of coding, algorithms, and data structure plus intensive training in HTML/CSS, JavaScript, Node.js, React, and more.

Besides classroom instruction, students will spend a minimum of 20 hours a week on outside projects, homework, and experiential learning activities. They will also build a professional project portfolio to showcase their abilities and hone their competitive edge in the employment market. Students will also receive a range of career-planning services, portfolio reviews, recruiting assistance, and extensive staff support.

Boot camp students will gain skills to develop dynamic end-to-end web applications, as well as receive certificate in full-stack web development from Carleton University.

Needless to mention, Carleton University is a dynamic research and teaching institution with a tradition of leading change. On the other hand, Trilogy Education, recently acquired by education technology company 2U, Inc., partners with 49 universities around the world to help power intensive training programs in coding, data analytics, UX/UI, cybersecurity, and fintech. Pairing Carleton University’s strengths with Trilogy’s market driven coding curriculum offers students of the new program both the competence and confidence to succeed in the technology industry.

Meanwhile, enrolment for the program is now open at bootcamp.carleton.ca. One can apply online or by calling 613-519-6718.
