“These programs all take advantage of innovative simulation labs and students get to apply what they’re learning to portfolio-building projects,” Amy Johns, UNLV educational outreach interim director of program development said. “In addition to the technical training students are getting, they are also learning to problem solve, manage projects and take new approaches to learning.”
ThriveDX’s Director of University Success West Region Emily Lawton expects their scope of offerings and distribution channels to meet more learners’ needs. The program is not exclusive to UNLV. It is also a part of universities across the nation, including New York University and the University of Miami.
“Professionals with strong technological skills are in high demand and I don’t see that growth slowing any time soon,” Johns said.
The company offers five different programs with UNLV from Software Development Bootcamp to Cybersecurity Bootcamp. Nine out of 10 jobs will require digital skills in the next nine years, according to WeForum.
“The UNLV Digital Marketing Bootcamp will be another great addition towards helping community members upskill and reskill into a sustainable career path they can grow with for life,” Dan Vigdor, co-founder of HackerU said in a press release.
