The School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University has launched the CMU TechBridge Coding Bootcamp to provide access to computer science education and career opportunities for high school (or equivalent) graduates.

The bootcamp will extend the reach of CMU's computer science education offerings beyond its traditional undergraduate and graduate programs. CMU has partnered with TalentSprint to implement the program to help aspiring professionals build the skills required for launching and advancing their tech careers.

"CMU is dedicated to making a meaningful impact on society by extending its expertise to those who need it most," said Ram Konduru, director of executive and professional education at SCS. "CMU TechBridge is tailored to meet the increasing demand for high-trust, high-impact coding bootcamps for entry-level tech professionals. We are partnering with leading ed tech firm TalentSprint to offer this program, which will impart skills necessary for participants to secure and succeed in tech jobs."

There are more than 377,000 job openings for software and tech roles annually, and these careers attract premium salaries, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Further, the tech industry is moving toward skill-based hiring in addition to hiring traditional computer science degree holders.

This coding bootcamp will give participants industry-relevant skills for entry-level tech jobs without requiring a traditional computer science degree, removing barriers for people who might not otherwise have the time or resources. The program covers introductory computer science concepts with an emphasis on problem solving. Participants will learn to write code, build front-end interfaces and deploy programs using tools currently used in the industry.

This full-time, hands-on learning program will be delivered over four months. A hybrid program, CMU TechBridge Coding Bootcamp will include online classes led by instructors and mentors and two optional visits to CMU's Pittsburgh campus. The program will be delivered by SCS faculty, TalentSprint and industry practitioners. Upon successful completion, participants will receive a certificate from SCS.

"We are delighted to partner with Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science, a global leader in computer science education, to launch this coding bootcamp," said Santanu Paul, co-founder and CEO of TalentSprint. "This program will build on the success of TalentSprint's coding bootcamps around the world. For participants, it will open the doors to highly differentiated skills and premium careers in tech. For employers, it will provide access to a larger pool of software developer talent trained by CMU faculty."
