``I am making more money now, in my first position in the industry, than I ever could have dreamed of making, even after a long and respectable career, in the automotive industry.``

I chose to attend because I wanted a drastic change of career. I needed something that was more sustainable for my physical health, and also something where I could make enough money to support a growing family. After the program, I had planned to move across the country to be closer to my partner’s family, and decided to try to start forming connections and applying for jobs about 2 months before my planned move date.

I was able to secure a full time, contract to hire position in just 1 month after the program ended. The offer was far too good to pass up, so I moved myself much earlier than expected and started my job less than 2 weeks after I was offered the position. I am making more money now, in my first position in the industry, than I ever could have dreamed of making, even after a long and respectable career, in the automotive industry. I can’t thank my instructor and TAs enough for their wisdom and guidance throughout the course. I never would have felt confident enough to even try to get this job without their support.

``The program was great as it gave me a timeline and motivation to work.``

I really enjoyed my fellow students and the TAs. The program was great as it gave me a timeline and motivation to work. I chose to attend because I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep up the work on my own.

I was looking to get back in to software development after a career in telecom with Verizon. The program helped kick start that and allowed me to prove to myself and now to a new employer that I could do software development again and with current technologies.
