In order for people to be successful in the technology industry, they need tools. So why not teach those tools and help people get the resources and skills they need to get the tech jobs they want? Even better … we remove the barriers to this education by offering accessible and affordable classes to anyone and everyone willing to learn. No matter your age, background, education or job history – our doors are open.
We’re not a degree program or bound by 4-year-degree requirements. In the tech industry, portfolios, work ethic, and an aptitude for learning are key ingredients to landing the job you want. What we teach is relevant to your future. You’ll learn tech skills, but also gain a network of peers, professional development opportunities, and resources to help you along your learning journey.
Every student journey at Bitwise is unique, but each encompasses important parts of what sets Bitwise apart from other educational programs. Our system of teaching is individualized because we know one style of teaching won’t fit all. Alongside our curriculum, we incorporate soft skills like communication, collaboration, and confidence to help you network and prepare for your next job. We also focus on helping you craft a resume so you can be prepared to land an interview for your next dream job. Along the way, our team of mentors is rooting for each student’s success, guiding them through their own Bitwise journey. Combine all of these aspects and you’ve got a master recipe to help students from any background succeed.
We believe in learning by doing – so you’ll get your hands on actual projects like building websites and digital applications. Whether alone or with other students, our individualized and project-based education helps you learn by doing. You’ll grow in confidence and leadership, and come out of Bitwise classes with real projects to showcase your work.
Education is more than just what’s in a textbook. Soft skills help you navigate successful relationships with people that can be productive and efficient. At Bitwise, you’ll have opportunities to grow soft skills that benefit you in the classroom and beyond. You will participate in professional networking and meetups, lead presentations, or even prepare for your dream job by building a strong resume. Also, Bitwise offers small study groups and a one-month free Bitwise Cowork membership for all new students, providing the ability to collaborate and network with others to help you find opportunities to grow.
Our community exists both inside and outside of the classroom, and we’ll be here for you each step of the way. Whether it’s help with a project, career guidance, or just a listening ear, the entirety of the Bitwise community is a champion for you. After all, we could all use someone in our corner rooting us on!
Our curriculum doesn’t come from textbooks. We teach skills that help you land a job now. Our system of teaching is individualized and project-based. We value individual moments of learning, whether from one of our instructors, other students, or even yourself!
Industry drives our curriculum. Classes are focused on the most current trends and theories in the tech industry. We use coding languages and tech skills that developers and companies actively use today. We focus on topics and classes that are going to prepare people for careers in the technology industry. To put it simply: we create direct pathways to jobs.
We believe in learning by doing – you’ll learn the information and put it to practice immediately. This process is ongoing, meaning you learn new skills as you work on projects to help develop your knowledge base as you build your projects. Coding is skill-based work, so you’ll start building tons of different things during our classes. A website? A mobile app? The sky’s the limit. We’re here to help you along the way.
