Coding Curriculum

Becoming a successful web developer requires a strong foundation in computer science fundamentals, so the full-stack curriculum at The Coding Boot Camp at UNC Charlotte takes you deep into the basics of coding and data structure. The best way to master new topics is through hands-on experience, so real-life coding projects are at the heart of our program.

We know that employers care about what you can do, not just what you say you can do. That’s why students focus on the practical application of their knowledge, graduating with a comprehensive portfolio of projects that demonstrate their skills.
