Loyola University Maryland’s computer science department is now accepting applications for a four-week, full-time boot camp designed to prepare individuals with bachelor’s degrees for new careers in software development and computer science. The program will be held at Loyola’s Columbia Graduate Center from July 6 – July 30.
Limited to 20 students, the program focuses on the foundations of computer science, including fundamental Java programming. Successful students will gain the background necessary to apply for entry level jobs in computing and information technology or to pursue advanced educational options such as a master’s degree in the field. The boot camp is very hands-on; a large percentage of time will be dedicated to one-on-one guidance from the academic staff as students complete programming projects. The cost for the program is $500 per participant, plus the cost of a textbook.

Loyola’s computer science boot camp is supported by a grant of $43,615 from the Maryland Higher Education Commission’s (MHEC) BRAC Higher Education Investment Fund. BRAC, the Base Realignment and Closure Act, is expected to spur the creation of 60,000 new jobs and the addition of 28,000 new families in Maryland by 2015. The MHEC program provides funding for programs at Maryland institutions of higher education tied directly to BRAC educational needs.
