The program was crammed and rushed. Too many topics were covered superficially just for the sake of saying they were included. Near the end of the course, we were given a homework exercise in React that most students couldn't complete. Then we were told... Read More
This program may be advertised as suitable for career changers, but don't buy that for one minute. People without a deep IT background are likely to drown in this program. I had years of prior exposure to coding in VBA and SQL, but I didn't have an IT degree or work in IT. I couldn't handle the pace of this program. At completion, I never even considered looking for work in the field because I knew I was woefully unprepared.
I thought it was safe to enroll in this course because of Rutgers' reputation. I never expected Rutgers would lend its name to a program so haphazardly run by an outside organization.
My advice is to steer clear and save your money.Comment
Thank you for your feedback. From your review, we understand the program did not meet your expectations.
Like you mentioned, Rutgers Division of Continuing Studies has partnered with Trilogy Education Services (TES), a 2U, Inc. brand, to offer the Rutgers... Read More
As a bootcamp, we know that the curriculum is fast-paced and challenging while covering a wide range of topics, and we do our best to make this clear to prospective students. While our course model is rigorous, it is designed for individuals across a wide range of proficiency levels—ranging from experienced professionals to beginners.
Topics are introduced at a higher level in-class, after which students are expected to dive in and not only gain a deeper understanding of the concepts but practice their skills outside of the classroom. This helps individuals learn how to problem-solve and self-teach, two key developer skills. As the curriculum progresses, most students do feel more confident in the knowledge they have gained.
It's our goal for all participants to complete the program feeling equipped for success, so we would welcome the opportunity to speak with you and determine what additional assistance we can provide for you at this time. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (732) 430-2144. — Rutgers Bootcamps Team

"It was a disaster for me"
While doing my research on Data Science boot camp in google; this name popped up on Facebook. So I called the number and the guy who picked up the phone was hesitant to talk about the tuition. He put emphasize on how good the course is; strong admission... Read More
Therefore, I took the exam and somehow got selectedL. The down payment was $2500 and rest $7500 is supposed to pay in 6 months.
One cold evening, I was there in Somerset. It was amazing that how they are milking the people. I saw retail people with no math backround ; restaurant worker ; IRS agent and all sort of non-technical people joined the course to become a data scientist !! I am very sure most of them will be in debt for a long time paying the $10k tuition fees. The instructor was a cool 25 yrs. old dude with NO prior experience in boot camp.
Instructor himself knows that most of us was not getting him but he has to run to complete . The assistants were clueless. One assistant was from merrill lynch with no industry experience .
They have some job search program. I joined that one day and they put two students in a virtual room to discuss about job opportunity. Not sure what was going on.
Thank you for your feedback, Amit. We regret to hear that the bootcamp did not meet your expectations.
Like you mentioned, our program serves a mix of individuals ranging from beginners to professionals, and many of our students do enter the bootcamp with... Read More
We vet our instructors carefully, hiring practitioners with a minimum of three years of experience in the field in lieu of traditional professors in order to simulate real-life working environments. Throughout our courses, we analyze both their performance and levels of engagement in the classroom, providing feedback to help them further develop their teaching skills. We understand that you felt our instructional team did not provide satisfactory support and never want any of our learners to feel discouraged from continuing their work in our boot camp and beyond.
We sincerely care about all our students and would welcome the opportunity to further discuss what else we can do at this time to best meet your expectations and reinforce your learning. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (732) 361-4853. — Rutgers Data Science Bootcamp Team

I attended the Rutgers Coding Bootcamp program in March of 2016. My experience at the program has been incredibly amazing. Naturally, I have a love for technology, but I went into the program with ZERO experience in computer programming, and I almost... Read More
The structure and organization of the assignments helped me to gain a solid foundation into both front and backend development. The program is challenging and rigorous, but with the support of the staff you can make it! You will succeed in this program! I know, I did! After the program, I have become so motivated to discuss the topic of coding in education that I have started my own organization designed to increase coding awareness in K-12 public school education. Without Rutgers Coding Bootcamp, I would not be where I am today.
Personally, I would like to thank Keith Rosenberg, Peter Tumulty, Mark Awai, Jeremiah and Juanita Soranna for supporting my learning journey and being patient with me throughout this program.Your journey will be difficult, but I promise they will help you get through to reach your career goals. I am now an entrepreneur! They helped me to realize my “zone of genius” and I am truly appreciative.

"I highly recommend Rutgers Coding Bootcamp to anyone looking to make that jump into tech!"
If you're interested in taking the RCB full time full stack program you're most likely looking for a career change or to gain new work experience. I belong to the former group. I hated the career I was in and was in desperate need of a career change.... Read More
During the time leading up to the bootcamp my biggest concern was my lack of prior coding knowledge. I had no coding experience going into this and was worried that I would be overwhelmed and get left behind. I'm not going to lie, the pace of the course was intense and I put in a lot of work outside of class to keep up, but the instructional staff did an amazing job supporting everyone and making sure everyone stayed on track with the material. There wasn't a single day that I left the class feeling clueless or lost. The instructor and TAs were an invaluable resource during class and office hours. Whenever I had questions about concepts that were covered during class or trouble with my homework the instructional staff were able to help me during office hours, often in a one on one setting.
I was never the most studious person. In high school I did the bare minimum to get by and in college I often skipped classes and didn’t take them seriously. My experience at the Rutgers Coding Bootcamp was the first educational experience that I actually enjoyed. Everyday I looked forward to going to class, learning new things, and getting challenged by the homework. The program did an amazing job keeping me engaged and immersed in a learning environment. RCB gave me a passion for coding and taught me how to learn. I’m glad I chose RCB. From day one I’ve felt supported by the instructional staff and career services. I highly recommend Rutgers Coding Bootcamp to anyone looking to make that jump into tech!Comment
We’re glad that you chose our program, too! Congratulations on completing the course. It’s incredible to hear that you had such a positive experience in the program. We understand that the abbreviated nature of our program can make the fast-paced... Read More
