      I decided to pursue the cybersecurity field after selling my LED lighting manufacturing company looking to pivot into a new career, and after looking into this exciting new growing field, it gave me insight into the vast and lucrative career opportunities offered if you have the right education and credentials.  After extensively researching the various cybersecurity programs offered by many reputable schools, I decided to apply first to the Columbia Engineering Cybersecurity Bootcamp Program for a few reasons;

      First of all the curriculum was both diverse and extensive, covering the most important areas of cybersecurity that are the most useful to anyone pursuing their aspirations in this area.  I could tell the educational staff put a lot of time and thought into their topic selection, and yet they remained flexible in incorporating new subjects into the program even during the course of the class, while also taking input from the students.  The industry itself is continuously evolving and this regular updating is essential to keeping the program on the cutting edge in parallel with it.

      The program cost is quite competitive when compared to other in-class programs.  From what I've seen from other programs vs. their cost, the Columbia Cybersecurity Bootcamp Program offers the greatest return on your investment.  Midway through the program, the COVID crisis obviously made it more challenging for everyone, including for administrators, teachers and students alike.  But Columbia, in conjunction with Trilogy, made an extensive proactive effort to offset the adversarial effects, including making the TA's more available during numerous scheduled times for student questions, as well as the teacher himself, who also supplemented the student's preparation for career readiness with numerous one on one sessions along with Career Services.

      And, the cybersecurity program, part of the Columbia Fu School of Engineering, a department within one of the top Ivy League schools, lives up to its reputation as a leader in academia, and I am proud to display on my resume one of the finest institutions of learning in the US, and the world, and a great differentiator from other schools.

      Regarding my favorite aspects of the program, topic-wise I found learning about the benefits of the cloud, the components within a network and how they work together, and the tools and software we learned to protect them against a cyberattack, were all very intricate but interesting, and in fact I will be applying those skills to the technology startup that I will be working with shortly after the completion of the program, to protect their software as well as the environments they will be operating in.  The projects were on balance probably the most challenging part of the program, requiring collaboration, resourcefulness, and creativity to complete them successfully.  The teacher and TA's were simply fantastic.  They were extraordinarily helpful especially in a very challenging environment, and they bent over backwards to accommodate the student's needs.  You can tell they took a lot of pride and invested a lot of emotional energy along with intellectual rigor to make sure the students got the education that they paid for.
       
      My advice for students considering applying for or entering this program is to be ready for a major challenge.  You will emerge from this experience learning a great deal, if you invest enough time into it.  The program, although foundational from a cybersecurity standpoint, also transforms you and puts you in the shoes of a cybersecurity professional, challenging you all along the way to identify and then mitigate these types of threats for a company.

      A very intensive 6 months course, you get to learn a lot of different technologies being used in the industry, one recommendation i have for anyone that's going to take this course is that, you have to be very diligent in doing the work, and do a lot of outside learning as you are going through the course. Many of my classmates where half assing it and it showed. This is a big investment for a lot of you and i recommend taking it very serious and just learn as much as you can if you can put in 40 hours a week learning i recommend doing it as, this will be one time course.

      A 6-month course on becoming a full stack developer. Covered all the current topics and tools, finishing with the MERN stack. Course was fast-paced and requires a lot of additional learning to build on the subject matter being presented. Recommend keeping up with homework assignments and use the team projects as an opportunity to learn how to frame a project, assign tasks, and do frequent stand-ups and GitHub pull requests. Instructor was very committed to helping the students and answering all questions.

      I enjoy creative problem solving and am fascinated by figuring out how things work.  I enjoy puzzles and building solutions, and I was eager to learn a technical skill that would make me more marketable while looking for jobs.  My goal was to set myself up on a career path that had me thinking creatively and solving problems while earning a competitive salary with great benefits.  Based on the very little that I knew about Data Analytics, I did some light Googling and stumbled upon Columbia's Data Analytics Boot Camp.  I had never coded a day in my life.  I had some experience working in Microsoft Excel, but that's it.  I got my questions answered by the admissions folks at Triology and passed the intial test to qualify for the program.  I was nervous and excited to begin this program. 

      The first few weeks were a huge learning curve for me.  I do not have a math and science background, and we hit the ground running with coding.  I spent lots of time outside of class researching concepts on my own and watching online tutorials while taking lots of notes.  I can confidently say that I have never studied this hard or diligently in my life, but it has really paid off.  Over time, the concepts started to click and with every passing class I feel more and more confident in my abilities as a Data Analyst. 

      My favorite parts of this program have been my kind, patient, amazing instructor; building relationships with my classmates and working with them on homework outside of class; and taking advantage of the weekly 1:1 tutoring sessions with my outstanding tutor. 

      My main peice of advice to you is this: you aren't good at something until you learn how to do it.  No one is born with an innate ability to code.  You learn how to code.  If you have a creative and analytic mind, this program can be an amazing way to implement those approaches with a technical skill set.  It has been very humbling to learn something new, something that seemed so foreign and impossible to understand.  But it's not impossible.  It just takes a lot of work.  I've had to make sacrifices in order to dedicate as much time and energy as I can into this program, but I know that there will be opportunities for me once it's under my belt.  Anyone can learn how to do this, it just takes time.  Like I said, I was nervous, but after jumping in and dealing with the struggle and the challenge of wrapping my brain around this fast paced program, I feel proud of myself at how far I've come in such a short amount of time.

      I had Michael and Jamal as my instructors! They are an awesome pair because they synergize off each other's strengths. Michael strength is his ability to spark interest ontop of laying the foundational scaffolding of knowledge; while, Jamals is his ability to dive deep to build upon that foundation with best practices to create more efficient and less buggy code. On top of that, there would be many moments of quality comedic timing that really brought us as a class together.

      We have dedicated TA's like Casey, Yohann, Pete. Who would be in Mudd sometimes 2-3 hours before actual class time. Socializing with students and making sure that we got the help we needed.

      Early on in the Bootcamp, I remember having a memorable experience with TA's Michelle, Ben, and Mike who were with us in the glass study area of campus-level Mudd. I was trying to get this animation library working with my first deployment on GitHub pages. I was probably looking frustrated and Michelle came over and made sure I got help. This was at a time without class or office hours.

      Another time early on, I remember Jamal sat me down individually during after-hours just explaining from a question I had. He even missed an earlier train home for me.

      Recently during final project-week, EVERYONE stayed in class extra just so we can hit higher goals. It's time like these where you realize the instructional staff really are here to help us succeed in any way they can.

      On another note, I think Columbia attracts a really unique and rich student body. We had game designers who wanted to learn to code in our class. We had business owners. We had older 30's something finance people who realized they were teaching foreign developers how to automate their jobs and will be replaced soon if they don't adapt. And of course, we had young people like me who are in their early twenties trying to make something of their life.

      I had some gripes with the curriculum in terms of time spent on things that weren't that important. I talked to Michael and Jamal about it and they said they know and were trying to make changes with the higher-ups.

      Overall a great experience! A tough experience. A real challenge. If you're doing this you really will need to spend 12-14 hours each week at Columbia AND as much as you can get outside of class to review and build knowledge (10-20 hours+ minimum depending on the person). A ton of perseverance is needed, seriously!!

      If you can dream it, you can achieve it. This is what I had in mind before  I started the Full Stack Web Development program. This helped me to perserve against all odds. 

      From the time for registeration, I knew this was the program I wanted to attend. The customer service was excellent.  I was thrilled to find out that the program could be run part time, this  flexibilty is a big plus for the program. Also the tuition was one of the most affordable bootcamp in the city. The fact that the tuition could be paid installmentally made the program attractive.

      Attending  class the first day,  and the Course Curriculum shared,  simply confirmed to me that I was in the right program. 

      The instructors and the teaching assistants were passionate about  their coding  job, and were always happy to help. The SSM made sure students were getting  every the help they needed to succeed. The 50 minutes weekely tutorial service is a great initiative. 

      I started the program with no  knowledge of coding, but I completed the program well equipped with so much information to continue in this distinguished journey.

      Thank you Columbia Engineering BootCamp giving the tools I needed to succeed in this field.

      The instructers and TAs were amazing as they took the time out to help and really go over material. They looked out for everyone and made sure everyone was getting the help they needed! The material was current and assignments were challenging, which helped me learn and solve logical componenets, making me a better coder. I reccomend this boot camp to anyone who is interested in understanding web development!

      I am part of the first cohort and my experience with the program is overwhelmingly positive. All the staffs are amazing and they tried their best to help me understanding CS even though at times I was just nip-picking on the tiniest details. There are a few things I did not like about the curriculum, like how fast we had to speed through certain topics and how on our second project we were expected to create something to present with the amalgation of knowledge up to that point while still learing new things during class (when we were suppose to be working on the project) and having half the time of our first, argubly easier, project. At the end of the day, I put in about 3 hours daily and sometimes as much as 8 hours trying to learn all I can in CS. The program is amazing but it is not the end point of someone who is trying to start a career in the tech industry, you have to continue to learn on your own even though you might not be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

      Thank you for your review, Terry! We're thrilled you're having a positive program experience and are benefiting from the support of our team. You are absolutely right that this program is fast paced. Because we cover a wide array of topics in a short amount of time, our curriculum focuses on teaching participants how to learn, providing a high-level, hands-on understanding, with the goal of individuals expanding their knowledge of these complex concepts outside of class. We're always working to optimize our course material, so we appreciate your feedback. We commend all your hours of hard work thus far and wish you continued success!

      I am new to New York. I was looking for a job in my profession for almost one year, but it turned out to be complicated. For some, I was over-qualified; for some, I could not meet the requirements. I realized I needed more knowledge, more networking, and professional help. I did not think much about the Columbia boot camp; I made the decision soon after.

      The teaching process turned out to be very interesting in many ways. A team staffed with the best instructors who are always ready to support you and do their best. A personal career coach who is prepared to train you from start to finish. From preparing a resume to preparing for an interview.

      Time is short, so you always have to work on yourself, looking for as much as possible to get the desired result. And after a few weeks, you realize that you can create a website the way you want it, and it is no longer an unattainable result for you. You see the result every day, and it surprises you, in such a short time, you already own a lot. At one point, you become unfamiliar with the black box, very tangible and simple.

       If you love puzzles, are looking for a challenge, and are enjoying the result, then this course is for you. I'm proud of myself for being able to do this.

      Before signing up for the course, I have visited many boot camps and workshops in the NYC Greater Area. By far, this was the best one. To start with, many people who are interested in learning any Computer Science don't even know where to start and what they want to do (Front-end, Back-end, Data-Analysis, Data-Science, etc.). This program exposes you to all these paths; you'll be learning everything from VBA Scripting to Data Bases to Machine Learning. The instructors and TAs are also great and helpful.

       

      Also, it's a part-time program that lasts for six months (most of the Bootcamps are intensive 3-month programs) that are 9-6. With this Bootcamp, you don't have to sacrifice your job

      However, I would highly encourage all future students to be prepared to invest many hours for them to succeed. This course covers almost, and you do need to invest much time on your own to learn more about each topic.

       

      Lastly, they offer job assistance and they dedicate a careet coach that works with each student separtely and guide you through the process of finding a job in the field.
