At The Coding Boot Camp at UCR Extension, we not only want to cover the most in-demand skills for full-stack web development—we want to equip you for continued success even after the program ends.

That’s why our curriculum starts with computer science fundamentals, dives into the front-end and back-end, and most importantly, teaches you how to learn so you can keep growing your skills in the years to come.

And we know that prospective employers care about what you can do, not just what you say you can do, so hands-on training is at the center of our program. In 24 weeks, you’ll gain a wide set of technical skills, put them into action, and graduate with an impressive portfolio of projects.
