UW Extended Campus expands the reach of coding and data analytics boot camps across the UW system

MADISON, Wis.—People with coding and data analysis skills are in high demand in Wisconsin. For example, the career prospects of state-only web developers should grow by 9.1% through 2028 – well above average demand for other items. And now more than ever, adult learners are turning to universities to get the training they need in the modern digital economy.

UW Extended Campus has offered successful boot camps at both coding and Data analysis since 2019 and announces an expansion of its partnership. UW Oshkosh, UW-Green Bay, UW-Stout, and UW-Madison have joined UW Extended Campus to collaboratively deliver the two innovative programs, with UW-Milwaukee as an additional coding boot camp partner.

With nearly 200 graduates to date, this collaboration will expand the reach of these boot camp offerings throughout the University of Wisconsin system and help meet growing workforce needs.

Coding Boot Camp learners will develop a variety of key skills for front-end and back-end web development, including HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery, Express.js, React.js, Node.js, Progressive Web Apps, agile methodology, computer science, database theory, MongoDB, MySQL, Git, etc.

The Data Analytics Boot Camp focuses on developing learners’ skills in fundamental statistics, Python, MySQL, Tableau, Hadoop programming, machine learning, as well as web visualization skills in areas such as Bootstrap, CSS, HTML and Leaflet. js.

Both training camps are offered online for 24 weeks. Learners work individually and in teams to apply their skills to real-world projects. These projects can be used as a portfolio to present their knowledge to potential employers.

Students benefit from additional support inside and outside the virtual classroom through a network of instructors, tutors and peers as well as a dedicated career director to help develop soft skills and professional materials. Together, students chart a career path that blends existing experience with the skills they gain through boot camp and work to achieve career milestones and become competitive for employers. Graduates also have access to a network of industry partners and program alumni to help them pursue their professional success.

Boot Camps are powered by Trilogy Education Services, a 2U, Inc. brand.
