UVU partners with Bottega to launch Web Development and Coding Academy

The UVU Center for Professional & Continuing Education, in partnership with Bottega, Inc., are launching a full-time Web Development and Coding Academy Certification Program, beginning October 9, 2017, and running through January 14, 2018. As part of a long-term relationship with Bottega, program courses will be held at the Thanksgiving Point Campus in Lehi, Utah, and are taught by a staff of technical professionals.

The program will offer students opportunities in the high-demand field of web development and is structured for their success. “The relationship that UVU’s Center for Professional and Continuing Education developed with Bottega provides a broad spectrum of students with a fantastic training opportunity with a state-assisted institution as well as the technical and enterprise experience of a highly-successful web-development organization. Both institutions offer a wide-range of expertise and convenience for students. It is a natural partnership,” said Mike Walker, Assistant Director, Professional & Continuing Education.

Bottega training is approved through AdvancED, which is the largest community of education professionals in the world. No other Coding Bootcamp in the state of Utah is approved through this commission.

“UVU has an immeasurably positive impact on Utah and is leading the way in bringing more technically qualified workers to Silicon Slopes. We are proud to be their partner in developing and delivering a rigorous computer science training program that meets the needs of employers and also individuals who are seeking a faster path to rewarding employment.” – Eric Wold, CEO Bottega LLC.

The 12-week Web Development and Coding Academy costs $9995 (financing is available). The course provides a full stack introduction to computer science, by blending a traditional focus on algorithms and architecture. Students will receive an immersive experience in web applications, databases, and APIs through a continuously upgraded and dynamic curriculum featuring technologies like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Node, and AngularJS.
