Description

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.

Additional Info

The coding bootcamp at Columbia Engineering focuses on full stack web development. Students begin the course by learning HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. After learning the bread-and-butter coding languages of web development, students will focus on more advanced languages and tools such as jQuery, Java, Express.js, React.js, Bootstrap, Database Theory, MongoDB, Command-Line, MySQL, Git, and more. Data analytics students have a different curriculum, focusing on HTML, JavaScript, and CSS, plus additional data-related languages. The Data Analytics program, which is only available part-time, emphasizes advanced excel, fundamental statistics, and a generous amount of Python programming. Students also learn about databases, business intelligence software, big data, and machine learning. The cybersecurity course covers networking, systems, ethical hacking and penetration, programming (with Python) and scripting, and cybersecurity career paths. The FinTech (financial technology) bootcamp covers financial fundamentals, analysis, blockchain, cryptocurrency. Machine learning finance applications, and financial programming. The financial programming section features Python, Pandas, Matplotlib, API interactions, Amazon Web Services, and SQL.

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.

    A little bit of a background of myself and my start into the IT world. I have done a Bootcamp in IT support prior to joining this CyberSecurity Bootcamp. I have a non-technical degree and a CompTIA A+ certification with 2 years of IT work under my belt. This program is an awesome program that was lead by an awesome team of instructors and TA who are knowledgable professionals. They were always willing to give their time to students after class hours (Even days when we did not meet officially) to share their knowledge and to continue to help us grow in this new and challenging field. As someone who just successfully completed his second BootCamp in IT I will tell you this. IT IS HARD and it will demand a lot from you. This included personal sacrifices, not being able to hang out late at night in the bars/clubs, putting time and effort in your studies, commuting to and from work. Everyone has different situations but you get what you put in. Columbia and Trilogy have a partnership and yes there are some things that need work, but all in all this was a great class run by an amazing team of instructors who cared a lot, taught us very important tools of the trade, and allowed me to network with amazing people that I plan to always keep in touch with.

    PROS:
    Plenty of Hands-on Labs.
    *Class Room size is not too big which always instructors and TAs to assist.
    *Classes are Recorded and can be re-watched over at your pace.
    *You are taught tools of the trade and industry standards.
    *Programs like Kali Linux, IDS (Snort, Splunk) and IPS, Cyber Forensics, Computer Networking (Wireshark), Penetration testing (Metasploit, NMAP, HYDRA, WFuzz, WPscan, Pivoting)
    A lot of Linux (Know how Terminal Works) OS architecture, Python programing (creating Dictionaries, Loops, If/Else statements)
    Worked with Capture the Flag Boxes, understanding Website hacking (DVWA, Cross site scripting, XSS, Burp Suite) and much more.

    CONS:
    *At times the Curriculum can be somewhat off-balance. For example, Python coding is very challenging especially for those with a non-coding background. Highly suggest you play with this before enrolling. Class Homeworks on this subject is often very difficult to accomplish. Suggest you take an online course and learn a few things or buy a great Python intro book to get you used to the language.

    *Not enough emphasis on Networking: I wish that Trilogy and Columbia would review this section-Networking is an essential part of how Hackers can enter into a target and begin recon stage of scanning, not just ports, but to see what devices are on a network. (Computers, Firewalls, DMZ, Honey-pot) I would recommend Trilogy teach students how to at least build a network architecture. (CISCO LABS!/NetAcademy)

    *Highly encourage Trilogy to invest in having an On-Site Career counselor at class. By that, I mean someone full time that meets students on campus. One of the reasons why I was able to get a job in IT, in general, was because my first Bootcamp had classes dedicated to Career development and it was required NOT optional. This is the most important aspect of a Bootcamp. Sadly Trilogy needs to make up for this, I won’t complain too much here because I have a security team at my current firm and will be joining their ranks soon.

    Class Rooms-Columbia is a beautiful campus, but I wish CU would do a better job in assigning rooms that are adequate for laptop usage. They placed us in rooms with these small size table chairs (The ones you sit in when you take a small booklet exam for college) this is not ideal for a 3 + hour class. Also, why not give Students temporary access to quite places of gathering like the library or the instructors a temporary small office to meet with students. This can make meeting after class hours difficult and not in an always ideal learning situation. I hope CU really gets this.

    In the end if I had to do this all over again, I would. This course has been extremely beneficial to me. professionally, It has given me a desire to continue expanding my new learned skills and knowledge. To look at technology with a sharper more focused critical analysis that can help my clients and their business navigate the dangers that are becoming more present every day. Personally I have met and networked with some amazing people these past 6 months many of whom I call my friends and colleagues. They came from different industries, bringing to the table their own wealth of experiences, backgrounds both technical and non-technical which provides a great insight into Technology but also what CyberSecurity really is, a world that touches on all facets of society and our lives.

    I hope this review can inspire you and help you get past some of the less important things. The only real thing that matters is the knowledge you gain and the people that you meet that can help you grow professionally and personally.

    I just got accepted to this program (2 interviews and 1 exam) and just a couple of days with them I already feel that they are providing me the support that I need while I’m transitioning to a new career. A couple of facts that I think makes a difference in this program way better than other coding schools in the city.

    1. Series of pre-coding classes. (It will start as soon as you get the confirmation)
    2. Super-friendly and knowledgeable staff
    3. Full-classroom setting: 10 hours per week for 24 weeks in the university.
    4. Positioning yourself with the right network of people.
