The UNB Coding Boot Camp
In partnership with McKenna Institute and the University of New Brunswick, TechImpact is launching the first in a series of skilling boot camps. These boot camps directly address our province’s tech industry labour shortage and will provide students with a direct path to get hired in the New Brunswick tech workforce.
The UNB Coding Boot Camp is a 24-week, part-time program, with the next boot camp starting on July 17, 2023. The tuition cost is $10,955 per student, with multiple tuition support application opportunities available.
The UNB Coding Boot Camp curriculum will feature the following skills:
- Databases (MySQL, MongoDB)
- Server-side development (Express.js, React.js and Node.js)
- Quality assurance and deployment (unit testing, linting, continuous integration)
In addition, students will benefit from a wide range of career services to position you for success through post-program completion and beyond.
TechImpact is also looking for employers who will consider meeting with approved students for the program and who would consider providing a job offer to one of these candidates. TechImpact will facilitate meetings with the approved students so employers can determine if they want to proceed and present a job offer.
Graduates of this Boot Camp will be best suited for the following positions:
- Full Stack Developer
- Back End Web Developer
- Software Developer
- QA and Test Engineer
- Front End Web Developer
