New online course will equip students of any background for careers in software development.
Davidson College and Revature, a leading technology talent development company, have announced a strategic partnership to provide a robust, tuition-free online coding program to Davidson students and recent graduates from the classes of 2014, 2015 and 2016.
RevaturePro, Revature's online flagship training program, offers Davidson students and graduates the tuition-free opportunity to learn modern software development languages and jump-start careers in coding with top companies. Students and recent graduates who would like to participate in the program can now register online.
The program is self-paced and features 18 courses in enterprise-level, next-generation and niche technologies. From beginner to advanced, coursework includes real-world projects, mentorship and access to certifications.
Once students complete the online courses, they are eligible to apply to Revature's on-site coding bootcamp, an intensive, 12-week program that further prepares them for careers in software development. Upon admission, the bootcamp, held at Revature's headquarters in Reston, Va., carries no cost and includes travel, housing and a stipend for students. Those who successfully complete the bootcamp are guaranteed employment with Revature.
"Davidson College students, due to their broad liberal arts education, are very well-suited to work in software development," said Joe Mitchell, senior vice president of university partnerships at Revature. "They already have the aptitude and the ability. Revature gives them the critical skills and training they require to enter the high-demand field of software coding."
"Our partnership with Revature gives our students a valuable opportunity to master skills that complement their liberal arts education," Davidson College President Carol Quillen said.
"Davidson graduates already know how to analyze complex problems from different perspectives. Their discipline, creativity and humane instincts distinguish them. With the additional training in software engineering they can now receive from Revature, Davidson graduates will be exceptionally well positioned to build lives of leadership and service in today's interconnected and rapidly evolving world."
RevaturePro will be available to students and graduates beginning fall 2016.
"Revature empowers our students and recent graduates to build the software skills employers are seeking," said Jeanne-Marie Ryan, executive director of career development at Davidson. "With online programs that enable them to engage in real-world projects, Davidson students can build a solid foundation in coding and software development."
