The cybersecurity curriculum offers hands-on training in networking, systems, web technologies, databases, and defensive and offensive cybersecurity.
Applicants do not need programming experience to enroll, but once admitted, all students will complete a pre-course tutorial. As the non-degree programs are part-time, UO Continuing and Professional Education Boot Camps are designed for working professionals and students who are actively pursuing a career change or advancement or looking to gain a new skillset.
Throughout the 24-week boot camps, students have access to career-planning services including resume and portfolio reviews, technical interview training, virtual tech panels, 1:1 coaching, and more. Successful participants will receive a Certificate of Completion from UO Continuing and Professional Education and will have a portfolio of projects demonstrating a working knowledge of web development or data analytics, or a variety of training applicable to professional certifications to demonstrate their mastery of the topics covered throughout their boot camp.
University of Oregon Boot Camps are offered in collaboration with edX.
