    N/A

    I decided to pursue a boot-camp after doing a few projects at work that involved coding. I knew if I wanted to pursue programming as a career I would need a solid knowledge base, so I decided to sign up for this class pretty last minute and hoped for the best. This boot-camp experience has exceeded all of my expectations, I have learned so much, our teacher is wonderful and actually works as a full time software engineer and did a boot-camp herself, so she is very up to date on the technologies used in the workforce and can relate to us through her own boot-camp experience. The homework assignments are often tricky but a great challenge and very helpful for learning. I was nervous that I would regret signing up and wouldn't love it, but it has made me even more excited for a career in web development. Before signing up for this class it would be advantageous to have a little knowledge of programming and be ready to commit to this class because you'll probably be spending 6-10 hours a week on the homework/class work. 

    Amazing, Katie! We're so glad that the boot camp helped you dive deeper into coding and gave you the skills to pursue a career in web development. As you mentioned, mastering these topics and the homework assignments can be challenging, so we're thrilled that you found the materials helpful in your educational journey. We wish you all the best moving forward!

    I completed the Northwestern Data Visualization course in May 2020.  This class is well worth the time and tuition. 

    Big Data has arrived and it’s changing our world for the better.  Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are disrupting almost every category of our lives.  This class was a good introduction to a collection of the most important fundamental concepts of data science. 

    Expect a rigorous curriculum. The assignments are challenging and have purpose.  I never asked the question “why am I learning this?” The instructors and TAs are solid and available for help if you need it. 

    The class has been designed to keep you up to date with the latest data science concepts, applications, and programming languages like Python, R, and SQL. 

    Basic concepts in statistics are taught in this course.  You will learn how data scientists use statistics to analyze structured and unstructured data sets.  In addition, you will learn exploratory data analysis, trend analysis, and data visualizations. 

    The main benefit of this class is exposure. It moves too quickly to fully master everything taught in class.  The skills acquired by the student will have to be honed through continued self-study. The class lecture videos, notes, and assignments are saved and made available to help the student accomplish this. 

    Some of the things I learned during this course helped me pass the FDP examination. 

    It has become the benchmark certification for students interested in finance and data science. 

    www.fdpinstitute.org.  

    The classroom at Northwestern’s Wieboldt Hall is a big plus for this program.   It is a good location and provides a great academic environment. 

    Current events necessitated remote learning with Zoom for the last part of the course.  Online classes were conducted successfully, but I missed the interaction with the instructors and networking with other students.  I hope future students will be able to have this classroom opportunity soon. 

    We appreciate you sharing your boot camp experience, Tom! We're thrilled you successfully learned the fundamentals of data science and visualization. It's great to hear you enjoyed the curriculum and benefited from the help of our entire instructional team. Like you noted, this is a rigorous and fast-paced program with each lesson building on the last. We do find that as the course progresses, students feel more confident in their skills.

    Your cohort did experience a disruption due to COVID-19 that resulted in your studies transitioning online for the health and safety of all learners and we're glad this online format was conducted successfully. Congratulations on completing the program, we wish you all the best moving forward!

    At first I debated between enrolling in the Data Science and FinTech Boot Camps at Northwestern University. Ultimately I chose FinTech recognizing the curriculum is Data Science with a Finance focus plus the opportunity to attain a more technical understanding of blockchain technology. My experience has been challenge met with great satisfaction upon solving problems and project completion. I think projects which become part of your personal portfolio are a great way to showcase the skills learned in Boot Camp and is work you will admire looking back at. The instructors and TAs have all been excellent teachers sharing industry knowledge and best practices. Overall I view the FinTech Boot Camp as one of the best educational hacks to upskill into a FinTech and/or Data Science career. The course is very practical and covers many tools to help you excel in the workplace. The advice I would give is to give yourself a head start using free online resources to come in with some knowledge of the programming language you will be learning and brush up on your statistics! Following these tips you will be more confident and learn faster.

    Amazing, David! Thank you for choosing our boot camp to attain a more technical understanding of blockchain technology.

    Thinking back on my experience of the course, the first word that comes to mind is ‘whoa’. Now after completion of the course, I am thinking what else can I learn and accomplish. I will explain why.  The course was not easy at all. I describe it as one the most difficult accomplishments I have achieved in my life. Most definitely something that I am proud and brag about quite frequently. Instructor William Wright and all TAs will understand the concepts behind decision making of the code that I write. My biggest take-away, was the ‘How’ to tell a story with data.  Another thought of my appreciate of this data boot camp is the instructor could have thought the course of out-of-box, meaning just taught of code, followed instructor notes, and taught us bare minimum. Well that did not happen! Get felt great to know the course was not a waste of time and money.  After each assignment I gain more and more confidence because support was always there when I wanted it. 

                    It hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel, when learning something new.  In the beginning of the course, I thought to myself, how can I use this new knowledge to better my career and make more money. After the Python homework assignment, it was clear that I had required the knowledge needed to create opportunities to advance career and make more money. Now it feels great to be in control of my future. However, now having these new knowledge powers, I needed help channeling my power to display for employer. This is where career services come in. I will admit after graduation I was exhausted and had little energy to focus of getting my resume, GitHub and LinkedIn prepared to become employer ready, because I felt I had already exceeded my personal expectations. Michelle Licata, my career coach, help me find a second wind and even help guide me through some personal issue that made it challenging to keep moving forward. Most importantly with Michelle’s coaching I landed my current position as a Business Intelligence Analyst for Uptake. 

                    I also have a new model I commandeered from Angelica Baraona, “think of learning as if you were drinking water from a water hose,” which really resonated and help me understand I wasn’t expected to learn everything all at once. Reminded me that classes were filmed, slack, and class repositories are all resources that will be there after the conclusion of the course. I saw that as placing a bucket under the water hose while drinking lol. Knowing I could come back to review and continue my education post-graduation give me more confidence that I can do it. 

                    I recommend the Data Science and Visualization Northwestern Boot Camp to friends and family. I am also looking for ways to stay involve with the program and taking different course next year. 

    Way to go, Abraham! We're thrilled you had a positive student experience. It's great to hear you gained more confidence with each assignment and benefited from the support of our entire boot camp team — we also have to agree that William, Michelle, and Angelica are all fantastic. 

    You're completely right that learning a new skill set is challenging and does require hard work. We're glad you were able to tea advantage of our career services and kept moving forward during your job search. 

    Congratulations on successfully completing the program and on landing an exciting new role! We wish you the best of luck in all that you do.

    I graduated from Northwestern's data science Bootcamp in February 2020. The Bootcamp is a very fast-paced and intense learning experience. I had Python, Postgres, and the basics of HTML knowledge before joining the Bootcamp. However, Bootcamp helped me put that in practice, along with data science fundamentals. I particularly loved the support I got from Travis (Instructor) and TA(s), as well as batchmates. I am talking about my capstone in almost every interview I go through.

     I highly recommend this course to shape your career as a data scientist, especially if you come from a non-technical background!

    We appreciate your review, Ankita! We're happy to hear you had a positive student experience and benefited from the support of our instructional team—we also have to agree that Travis is pretty great.

    I had a great experience learning at Northwestern's Data Science and Visualization Boot Camp. The instructor was knowledgeable and presented the materials in a way that was fun and challenging. Both TA's were wonderful and engaged with the students, very helpful with their guidance. Outside of the 10 hrs of classroom learning per week, plan on at least 25-30 hrs per week on homework, group projects, tutoring, and office hours. Its a very fast paced program, and there is a lot to learn. The materials were up to date, and the staff showed us real world applications. I can't comment on the career services portion, as I'm just starting out on that, but so far my contact has been helpful and responsive. 

    Amazing, Ash! We're glad to hear you had a positive boot camp experience and benefited from the support of our entire instructional team.

    I have worked for tech companies but more on the business, operations, and analytical side. I started my own income stream recently and wanted to learn some more technical knowledge to further enhance my capabilities so I can wear more hats. I was a bit hesitant at first but did a lot of research on Bootcamps before deciding to move forward. I am happy I made my decision. I worked alongside brilliant minds with interesting backgrounds. In 6 months, I went from not know how to code at all, to knowing 4 languages with levels of confidence, heavily advanced my mathematical knowledge, and now actively building apps, APIs, and machine learning models with datasets to further increase my skills. 

    Before joining, where was I?:
    - I am college educated (non engineering or computer science)
    - Worked for innovative and fast paced companies
    - No knowledge of coding
    - Well above average understanding of statistics

    How much work is there?
    - Most of my work was outside the class. I spent countless hours outside of class daily to work on the assignments, read more resources, documentation, etc. It takes a ton of work, so you have to be ready
    - Ability to learn on your own; yes there are a lot of resources from classmates, teaching staff, and tutor help. however, you will have so many questions that you have to learn how to answer them on your own. 
    - Never lose confidence; They pack in a few years of advanced information with a 6 month time period. It can get overwhelming and stressful. Take it one step at a time. Trust me, it will all come together but you must work at it.

    What am I able to do after?
    - I am working on various projects. I am currently building an API for a product that I currently sell. I will be able to share that API with my business partners to sell my product digitally online outside of my own website, and collect necessary data to further enhance the experience. 
    - Machine Learning models; if you are like me, I was looking forward to machine learning more than anything, but that is not something you can just jump into as a beginner. START STUDYING STATISTICS. This will help more than anything, the code is there, but the math is the most important. took me several months of a lot of research and practice, but now I am able to make models and neural networks in Python.
    - Building visualizations was a pleasant surprise, while doing it learning and building in JavaScript. very necessary tools for so many businesses
    - I didn't do this to find a job, but I have learned so much and fairly talented at it, so I am even debating on pursuing this side of things...however, I have classmates that found a job during, and others that are actively interviewing for positions related to what they learned. They have an amazing post grad career services. 


    Way to go, Milad! We're thrilled you chose our program to further your current skills and expand your technical capabilities. It's great to hear you enjoyed the curriculum and working alongside your classmates.

    Like you mentioned, the course does require extensive hours both inside and outside of the classroom to truly master the topics covered, so we commend all the hard work you dedicated. "Never lose confidence" is great advice for prospective students! 

    Congratulations on successfully completing the boot camp and thank you for your review! We wish you continued success in all that you do.

    N/A

    I'm in the homestretch of the Northwestern University (Evanston campus) part-time, 24 week bootcamp. I had originally signed up to help round out my graphic design skills, as many positions wanted some type of web development experience (from updating a wordpress site all the way up to SQL database maintenance). What I got from the course was so much more than that.

    While the course FLIES by at a blazing speed, you learn so much every class. I've equated it to learning to speak Chinese in that you're learning one language, but also several dialects that go along with it. It's not an easy feat. The instructors and support are excellent and very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Many will go above and beyond when asked for assistance, be that in person or via Slack.

    I have a couple of downsides, but they're not dealbreakers by any means.

    • I do wish more time was devoted to the front end portion vs. the server/database side, but that's a personal preference, as it's where my interest is. We stop at Bootstrap, but it's widely considered that Materialize is a superior option. While we're equipped with the means to parse documentation, I would've benefitted from learning hands-on.
    • I wish the activities were updated from time to time to reflect changes. For example, we're told early on to replace var with let and const, but all the activities don't. Sometimes our instructor would say "they have ____, but I would do _____ instead." While there's any number of ways to reach the same goal, it would be nice to have the sense that the instructional team and Trilogy are symbiotic. Sometimes the homework assignment instructions were a little convoluted or an important part was buried elsewhere one wouldn't know to look. A streamlining to the Gitlab materials would go a long way.
    • And finally, while it's definitely a real-world application, as it's like 60% of any given workday, getting "Google it" as a response to a question is not the most ideal answer, considering the cost of the course.

    Those elements aside, this is a very worthwhile course. Know going in there will be a lot of work and a large time dedication and what you get out of the class is what you put into it. Know that you may run into full-brain syndrome during any given class or coding session. It's normal and will pass. Rely on your classmates, Google, and other research sources and put in as much time as you can and need. 

    Thank you, Greg! We're thrilled you chose our program to advance your current skill set. Like you mentioned, this is a fast-paced course, so it's great to hear you benefited from the support of our instructional team. Great advice for prospective learners—reaching out to classmates and utilizing all available resources, will definitely prove to be beneficial.

    We appreciate your curriculum and homework feedback, as we're always looking to optimize the student experience. Congratulations on all the hard work you've dedicated thus far, we wish you continued success as you finish out the boot camp!

    I took the part time, 24-week fullstack web development boot camp. The course was a very informative overview for someone like me coming into it with no prior coding experience. It was definitely a challenge, but they emphasized the time and effort it would require when I applied so I was expecting that. I got what I had hoped to get out of the program, which was a software development job immediately following my completion of the bootcamp. My complaint would be that I wish even more time was spent on React. Forget the two days of python and just spend more time on React. The more learning and practice you can do on your own outside of the program, the better off you will be.

    Way to go, Sarah! We're happy to hear you successfully learned the fundamentals of full-stack web development. We understand you would have wanted to spend more time covering React, and we appreciate you sharing your thoughts as our curriculum is constantly being updated to be in line with market demands. Congratulations on graduating and thank you for sharing your boot camp experience! We wish you success in all your future achievements.

Review: “I would never have been able to be hired for this if I hadn't attended boot camp.”

Sarah Parkington

I had been working in ad sales and knew sales was not what I wanted to do forever. I was working at a tech start up that had a lot to do with data science. I worked closely with the data analysts and found I gravitated towards learning what they were doing to manipulate the data on the back end and how. When the startup sold, I needed to make a quick decision and I chose to sign up for a data science boot camp to change my career to be in data. I chose Northwestern so that I’d have a big name school on my resume, which I knew would help me greatly in the job market after the program.

Graduating during a pandemic was not easy at all, and I was very appreciative to have Michelle Licata as my support while I was going through the very difficult job hunt in the peak of lockdown. I stumbled upon the opportunity to work in data science for the US Army and I’m very excited. I would never have been able to be hired for this if I hadn’t attended boot camp. My family is all military so I will fit in very well. I never considered this as a career before, but now I know this could be my career for a very long time.

Review: “I am very happy with the outcome of the program and would definitely recommend it to anyone interested.”

Sabrina Rolz Sandoval

My overall experience with the program was great. I decided to attend, since I wanted to further build upon my technical background in order to transition to a role in software engineering. The instructors, [TAs] and the rest of the staff was extremely supportive and very knowledgeable on the subjects covered. Even though I didn’t interact with career services, they constantly reached out to me for guidance, which shows how supportive they are to current and graduated students. The reason why I didn’t take advantage of career services is mainly because the company I currently work for, decided to sponsor my boot camp in order to transfer me to a role in technology.

I am very happy with the outcome of the program and would definitely recommend it to anyone interested.

Review: “I've changed the trajectory of my career in less than a year.”

Ellen White

I realized after working for a few years in well-paying, but rather plain customer service jobs, that I needed the challenge and pace that only a career in tech could give me, so I looked into Development. I chose Northwestern because it’s a renowned name to back up my education, and I’m lucky to live nearby. The price seemed on par or even a bit cheaper than many other comparable programs. It was a difficult 6 months, but I’ve never learned anything so rapidly in my life, and I wish I’d done it 4 years ago right out of college. Now, I’m still not where I want to be, but I feel like I’m well on my way to finally having the career I want, and I”m very grateful for the work I put in. I’ve changed the trajectory of my career in less than a year.

Review: “The class was outstanding!``

Javier Salinas

Cybersecurity has been something I have really grown passionate about, I’ve known about the topic and what it does but did not know HOW to start. My original plan was enlist into the U.S Army as a 17C Cyber Operations Specialist after graduating high school two years ago, but after many decisions, I decided to go to Wright College as an alternative.

Personally, I felt like I was losing time that I could’ve used to get a head start on a career so, after doing [a lot] of research while sitting in the library at wright college, I found “Northwestern Cybersecurity Boot Camp” and placed my information and called, eventually enrolling!

The class was outstanding! I really did enjoy the class, it was very active and had various examples on what to do and not to do, the fact that it prepares one for the Security + exam is a huge plus! Although, some topics maybe could have been done in a better way such as running a student Kali yourself such as the Ubuntu machine.

I am now progressing towards my career in cybersecurity, starting as an IT Help Desk and then onward! This was something I really did not expect, but now I’m more motivated than ever!

Review: “It has given me so many new tech skills and this allowed me to land a new, more technical position.”

Mairead Lavery

I took the boot camp to improve upon my technical skills and build my portfolio to show to potential employers. It has given me so many new tech skills and this allowed me to land a new, more technical position at a great company.

Review: “Hands-on training that was specific to what I am interested in was vital to my decision.”

Scott Hajduk

I had previously attended a shorter, free boot camp that was part of a larger pilot program in the City of Chicago via City Colleges of Chicago.

After doing my own market research and trying to understand the overall layout of the Information Security world, I chose Northwestern and Trilogy based on their offerings. Hands-on training that was specific to what I am interested in was vital to my decision. There were other more common choices but with my prior knowledge, I felt Northwestern would be the best place to challenge myself and grow as an analyst and person.

Review: “it was pretty amazing going from not knowing how to code to building a real working project.”

Nora Byrd

I chose to attend because I was sick and tired of being in marketing and wanted to learn web development. The course gave me a fantastic foundation, taught me how to learn quickly, and gave me real practical experience – it was pretty amazing going from not knowing how to code to building a real working project.

Review: “It has impacted my life well as I have been able to jump to a new industry.”

Christine Trinh

The boot camp was an intense three months of my life, but I ultimately enjoyed the experience because there was so much to be learned. I chose to attend as I wanted more technical skills to further my career. It has impacted my life well as I have been able to jump to a new industry.

Review: “The boot camp gave my resume the sparkle it needed...”

Greg R.

I had been unemployed for almost 18 months when I decided to commit to a new career track. Enrolling was the final step of that commitment. The boot camp gave my resume the sparkle it needed to get me into the interview room, and taught me the skills I needed to pass the whiteboard test. I had an offer within five weeks of the program’s end.

Northwestern University Bootcamp Review

Northwestern University's School of Professional Studies has partnered with Trilogy Education Services to offer coding bootcamps that can prepare students to pursue new tech careers. The bootcamps feature skilled instructors who have at least three years of experience in the tech industry.

Bootcamp programs regularly incorporate findings from market research and student feedback to ensure that curricula are up-to-date and in line with job market demands. Northwestern bootcamps include hands-on learning, collaborative team projects, and a low student-to-teacher ratio.

Students receive academic support from their instructors throughout the program. They can also access career support, which continues beyond graduation. Working students and those with family responsibilities can find flexible and part-time online program options.

Upon completing the program, students receive a certificate of completion from Northwestern University's School of Professional Studies. However, bootcamps do not award college credit.

Ratings and reviews

Photo of Northwestern Bootcamps

Northwestern Bootcamps have mixed reviews. They hold a 2.2/5 star rating on SwitchUp and are rated 4.1/5 stars on Course Report. Northwestern Bootcamps’ students were impressed by the course’s supportive instructors and project-based learning, but some graduates were disappointed by the curriculum and career services.

One of the top reviews on Course Report raves that “the instructor was wonderful, talented, kind, and empathetic.” However, the grad described the curriculum as “mindless” with “no interest in the conceptual or creative side of coding.” Similarly, another reviewer praised the course support, commenting that her instructor “motivated and pushed us to be the best versions of ourselves.” She felt the “level of support made the program worthwhile.” But, another top review was more critical, warning that the curriculum is dry and that career support is only “some lady in Texas who sends you postings.”

Northwestern’s bootcamps are included among Value College’s Top 25 University Bootcamps. However, many students were critical of the bootcamp’s parent company, Trilogy. On Reddit, a data science graduate described Trilogy’s curriculum as “all over the place.” Similarly, another graduate on Course Report commented, “This is Trilogy not Northwestern, no matter how much they try to sell you that this is all Northwestern.”

But, a reviewer on Switchup praised the course for a “great learning experience” and “name brand affiliation” with Northwestern University. On the other hand, another reviewer was frustrated by the course’s job support, remarking “The career advisors also had no real experience” and “the advice I received was very generic information you can find on the internet.” Overall, many grads were satisfied by the tech skills they gained from the program, but some would have liked a more organized curriculum with greater job support.
