Become a Software Engineer

What’s Unique About Project Shift?

Computer Science + Industry Curriculum

With the best of both worlds, our students learn the stuff that coding bootcamps don’t teach and can do what CS grads can’t.

Selective Screening and Admissions

We carefully identify candidates that would make for great software engineers through a strict admissions process.

1:5 Student-Instructor Ratio

From code reviews to career coaching, we’re all about staying small and investing in mentorship.
