Software Engineers craft the technology that drives the modern world. They have the awesome power to create applications, websites, APIs and other digital technology. Software Engineering is a challenging and fulfilling job and the products that engineers create have the potential to impact both businesses and consumers in a powerful, positive way. There is a team of software engineers working tirelessly to perfect any website, app, or product you’ve used recently.
Because of this, the demand for software engineers is at an all-time high, as every business from small companies to international conglomerates are creating software for their customers to use. Software engineers enjoy high salaries, great job satisfaction, mentally stimulating work and the opportunity to work with the latest and greatest technologies.
The Software Engineering Bootcamp, created and delivered by Springboard and offered by Northern Illinois University CPE, will get you up to speed with the core principles of development, the most in-demand tools and technologies and teach you the best practices you’ll need to land a job in the tech industry.
This 100% online, non-credit bootcamp allows you to learn on your own schedule, and you can complete the course earlier if you put in more study hours per week.

We’ll also set you up for career success with nine optional career units that cover finding the right job titles and companies, networking fundamentals, writing resumes and cover letters and conducting mock interviews. The last unit covers 60 hours of technical interview prep, including in-depth preparation for whiteboarding and coding interviews.
