The University of Connecticut wants to invest in giving adult learners and working professionals the ability to code. The UConn School of Engineering is launching its first coding boot camp starting on July 30. The university is partnering with workforce accelerator Trilogy Education to launch the 24-week program.

"Our identity at both the undergraduate and graduate levels is heavily shaped by technology and business," said Terrence Cheng, director of the UConn Stamford campus. "Working with Trilogy further strengthens this identity, enhancing UConn Stamford's ability to meet the needs of our professional communities, while also upholding our commitment to engagement, partnership, experiential learning, and economic impact."

The program's curriculum will cover the basics of coding, algorithms, and data structure plus intensive training in HTML/CSS, JavaScript, Node.js and React. As part of the program, students will receive career-planning services, portfolio reviews and recruiting assistance.
