Course Description:

Coding Basics is a 5-week part-time course to help students learn basic coding and decide whether to pursue a software engineering career. Coding Basics is a prerequisite for Rocket Academy’s career-preparatory Software Engineering Bootcamp.

Through simple examples and games, students will learn core concepts of all programming languages, from variable manipulation to functions, conditionals, loops, and data structures. More importantly, students will learn how to think programmatically and translate ideas to code. By the end of the course, students will have built a small card game and have the foundations to build larger software projects.

Rocket Academy’s methodology emphasises hands-on practice. Students review videos, readings and exercises before class, and spend time during and after class writing code with peers and instructors.

Rocket Academy teaches Coding Basics in JavaScript, the world’s most popular language according to Stack Overflow.

Software Engineering Bootcamp

Cost: 4,999
Duration: 24 weeks

In-person Available Online
Course Description:

Rocket Academy’s Software Engineering Bootcamp (SWE Bootcamp) is a 6-month full-time or 12-month part-time course to teach students foundational SWE concepts and get a SWE job.

Led by SWEs and instructors from top schools and tech companies such as Meta, Stanford, Glints, National University of Singapore and Garena, our graduates have received offers at top companies such as Grab, Ninja Van, GovTech, Glints, Xfers, 99.co, Smartly.io, Funding Societies, Circles.life, Gotrade, Accredify, BandLab and more.

Students will learn SWE foundations through building software applications and practising algorithms. The course progresses from vanilla technologies such as HTML, CSS and JS, to advanced frontend and backend frameworks used by tech companies to create everyday products such as Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. By the end of the course, students will have built a unique and impressive portfolio they can use to get interviews with Rocket Academy’s network of over 100 hiring partners.

Specific course topics include frontend (generally look and feel), backend (generally logic and data management), cloud infrastructure (machines on which our code runs) and algorithms (ways to manipulate data). Along the way we will explore the latest technologies in SWE and apply SWE best practices such as precise naming, decomposition, code review, testing/CI, and linting.

Rocket Academy’s methodology emphasises hands-on practice. Students review videos, readings and exercises before class, and spend time during and after class writing code with peers and instructors. SWE Bootcamp is project-based, and students will need to complete a mix of individual and group projects to graduate.

At the end of SWE Bootcamp, Rocket Academy works with students to polish their resumes, portfolios, and interview skills to maximise job opportunities. Throughout the course, students have the opportunity to meet SWEs from industry via exclusive speaker events to build their network and learn industry and job expectations.

Rocket Academy teaches SWE Bootcamp primarily in JavaScript and Python, the world’s most popular coding languages, but the concepts we will learn are relevant to all languages.

Subjects:
HTML, CSS, JS, Node.js, Express.js, SQL, Postgres, ORM, Sequelize, Webpack, AJAX, MVC, React.js, Algorithms, Data Structures, Python, Bash

Tuition: SGD$4,999

Duration: 24-48 weeks
