Columbia, the Ivy-league university located in New York City, offers a coding bootcamp designed with Trilogy Education Services. Trilogy, which runs university bootcamps all around the country, worked with Columbia University to develop coding, data analytics, cybersecurity, and FinTech (financial technology) bootcamps. The university offers full and part-time bootcamps on campus, and the programs are open to both students and non-students. Trilogy coding bootcamps do not offer college credit, but students do obtain a Columbia University coding certificate upon completion of the course.
Each of Columbia University’s bootcamps follows a standardized schedule. The part-time programs, which are the most numerous, run for a total of 24 weeks. Students attend class on two weekdays from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM, and another class on Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The full-time bootcamp runs for only 12 weeks, but students attend classes from Monday to Friday, 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The part-time coding bootcamp is available in New York City, with classes taking place in Brooklyn. The full-time coding bootcamp is also available in New York City. The cybersecurity bootcamp, FinTech program, and the data analytics bootcamp are only available part-time, while the full stack web development coding bootcamp is available in both full and part-time schedules.
Trilogy Education Services, which helped Columbia Engineering set up these programs, chose not to publish job placement statistics. Instead, students receive career placement assistance and education through the program. The program offers career coaching, support, and portfolio-building activities to all students. Additionally, portfolio review, interview training, and resume assistance are also available to students free-of-charge.
Tuition prices are standardized at Columbia University’s coding bootcamps. Each program costs $12,995 upfront, and some scholarship opportunities are available for the programs. The online part-time programs, full-time in-person programs, and part-time in-person programs all cost the same. Students can opt to pay the full tuition up front, though a third-party lender, or through Columbia University’s interest-free payment plan. Early registration pricing is available upon request. Students are required to bring a functioning laptop. Both Windows and Mac computers are acceptable, as long as the device has a dual-core (64-bit) processor and at least 8 GB of ram.
