"The right way to boost your skills"

I was working as a Frontend Engineer when I decided to join the Full Stack Program. For me it was about boosting my backend skills, and when I read the content of the program I immediately knew that it was what I wanted. I didn’t only learn a lot about... Read More

Instructors are top, very studied in their fields and no question was left without an answer. They were also very reachable trough online channels, no matter day or time, an important point during a bootcamp in my opinion.

One of the best things of this company is the guys behind it. Even though sometimes I had the feeling of being a beta batch, they fulfilled our suggestions from day one, and they were always there in order to improve our experience.

The level of the students in my batch was very different, having some without any knowledge, for me, already a front end developer did not add lots of value, but for them it was helpful when I contributed and helped them on various questions.

If I was being asked again three months ago knowing all of this, I wouldn’t doubt of doing it again.

"Change your career in less than a year!"

The motto of Propulsion Academy is "Everybody can learn to code". And that's definitely true! I had NO prior coding experience before I enrolled in full-stack development programme. Moreover - I came with absolutely non-technical background (I have MA... Read More

The programme of bootcamp is very well-structured and is very practical-oriented: every day after half-a-day lectures you code for minimum 4-5 hours. Sometimes the amount of new information is overwhelming, but teachers and teaching assistants are great - very friendly, helpful and competent. One of the most valuable things - the programme covers many hot technologies (e.g. Docker or React). I also liked the international atmosphere of the bootcamp and I found there a lot of like-minded people.

The Propulsion Team takes care about every student and helps a lot in application process (networking, CV review, mock interviews , etc.)

I am very happy that I graduated from this bootcamp - this changed my career as well as my life ;)

"Career/Life changing experience"

I was looking for a job in Zürich for some time after career break, trying to find something close to Science since I finished Ph.D. in tech field and after thorough consideration of different ways to join Swiss job market I chose Propulsion Academy Bootcamp... Read More

There was a lot of work, the pace is quite intense: in one day we learned one important topic for the field. Starting from basics (programming languages, tools, data preparation) to really advanced (neural networks, deep learning, TensorFlow, NLP). After finishing the course we learned a lot of tools, algorithms, buzzwords and knew where to look for the solution if we have a problem.

The curriculum is very well structured, you use the knowledge you got in previous days, teachers are helpful as well as TAs, so it is doable.
You learn a lot, but what is also important - opportunity to meet people from the field and potential employers, talk to them. The final projects are also provided mostly by companies and are real-life issues so you can work on something valuable.

Overall, the school has an atmosphere of support and inspiration, which really helps to perform better and to gain your goals.

I met a lot of great people, totally changed my lifestyle and mindset, got a job, and I continue developing myself - that is exactly what I wanted from this Bootcamp.
