Software engineering tech elites give back to their school by launching a Free 12-weeks Software Engineering Bootcamp for students stuck at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last month, the Federal Government through the Ministry of Education pronounced a temporary closure of all schools in Nigeria to curtail the spread of the Covid virus.
Sadly, the current Academic system in Nigeria cannot handle online classes for all students due to the lack of digital infrastructure. While private-owned Universities could pull this off, it has become highly unlikely for Federal and State Universities to implement it.
Three young software engineer talents have come together to launch a free software engineering Bootcamp which would run virtually for 12-weeks. The Bootcamp is pioneered by Ugonna Okonkwo, Prince Osinachi Nchiba, and Afuye Ayodeji in partnership with the Department of Computer Engineering, University of Benin.
The Bootcamp promises to equip participants with practical skills that would put them in a better position in the ever-growing digital sector. This approach of hands-on learning from leading peers could be essential in the software engineering field, where practical experience is highly valued.
Application opens on the 27th of April and closes on the 11th of May. The Bootcamp program will start on the 18th of May, 2020.
Below are the eligibility requirements:
- Applicants must be fast learners with keen interest in software development.
- Must have access to a computer and internet.
- Able to dedicate at least 2 hours per day to complete daily tasks.
- Must be an enrolled student of the University of Benin.
