In collaboration with UW Extended Campus, UW-Green Bay is offering a new learning format, boot camps for people with coding and data analytics skills, which are in high demand in Wisconsin.The occupational outlook for web developers alone in the State is projected to grow by 9.1% through 2028 — well above the average demand for other positions. And now more than ever, adult learners are turning to universities to get the training they need in our modern digital economy. New North President and CEO Barb LaMue reinforces the urgent need for data science talent in the area:
“Our partner organizations are feeling the pinch of the current talent shortage and have been hit especially hard when it comes to data analysts and data specialists,” she says. “We appreciate UW-Green Bay working to address that.”
Boot camps are offered online over the course of 24 weeks. Learners work individually and with teams to apply skills to real-world projects. Those projects can be used as a portfolio and showcase their knowledge to potential employers.
