The Classroom Experience

What’s it like inside the classrooms of UCR Extension Boot Camps? Our programs are intensive and immersive—combining compelling lectures with solo and collaborative team exercises. Students get the chance to work alone outside of class and work in groups in the classroom.

Strategic homework assignments give learners hands-on practice on the lessons learned in class, allowing them to fine-tune their skills. We believe that applying your skills on projects is pivotal to mastering new material. In class, students not only receive a dynamic learning experience, but they also gain insight into a “day in the life” of a full-stack developer or cybersecurity professional.

To give students a truly immersive learning experience, we provide an intimate class setting with a low instructor to student ratio. In addition to our talented instructional team, students have dedicated TAs in classroom to provide wide-ranging support.

It’s the digital age—so everything you need for our programs can be done via laptop. This eliminates the need for extra expenses on books, and you’ll know that you are gaining applied knowledge by working directly in the systems you are learning. You’ll also simulate a professional work environment by solving real-world problems with your peers. Our programs are structured into three main groups:


Discussion

Instructor-led discussions cover the history, usage, and background of a new technology or concept.

Lab Work

You’ll put the material covered in class into action by working on timed in-class exercises and projects.

Portfolio Projects

Class assignments focus on projects or skills applicable to industry certifications that showcase your abilities across a wide range of technologies.
