Lynn University expands technology programs

New academic collaboration provides career-ready software development skills

Students at Lynn University.

Lynn University today announced a new academic collaboration with Code Institute, a Dublin-based coding bootcamp that trains career-ready developers. Lynn students, alumni and employees will gain access to Code Institute’s online courses for a significantly discounted cost.

The new program is part of Lynn’s mission to provide students with skills that meet market demand for careers in high-growth industries. The university also announced it will add two degree programs in cybersecurity and data analytics beginning fall 2018.

“Technology plays a role in every aspect of the professional world, and our students will be able to enter the job market with a competitive advantage,” said Lynn Chief Information Officer Christian Boniforti. “Practical training in cybersecurity and other tech segments combined with critical thinking skills creates a powerful basis for success.”

Lynn undergraduates can use Code Institute’s self-paced program toward up to 12 elective credits, or divide them into six toward a bachelor’s degree in cybersecurity or data analytics and use the remaining six as electives.

Code Institute’s online program is designed to be completed within a year, but Lynn participants can benefit from an extended period of time. Bootcamp material is accessible for up to one year after completion to learn any technology advances.

Code Institute CEO Jim Cassidy said, “We are privileged and delighted to make our online courses available to Lynn students. As IT now affects most roles in the world, no matter what the industry, it is of massive benefit to students to learn the languages of coding. It is predicted that there will be 1 million vacancies in the U.S. for IT specialists by 2020. Those who learn code now will have a huge advantage in the workforce.”

To learn more about the collaboration, register for a free webinar June 20, at 7 p.m. EDT.
