    Good Experience

    During the summer of my senior year pursuing a Computer Engineering Degree (May 2023 - Aug 2023), I had the privilege of participating in a meticulously structured and enriching educational experience. Armed with a strong foundation in the field, I found the course to be both accommodating for beginners and challenging for those with more seasoned expertise.

    I am uniquely positioned to address the perennial debate between traditional college education and the intensive bootcamp ap...

    Great experience!

    I had a very positive experience with Tech Elevator.  The instructors were very knowledgeable, and there was plenty of support for anyone who was struggling with certain concepts.

    Pros:The curriculum was well laid out and paced well.  
    Cons:It is a lot of content to get through in a short time, but that is expected.

    Great Instructors, amazing bootcamp

Overall, my experience at Tech Elevator was fantastic, and I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking to enhance their technical skills and make a successful career transition.

    Most Intense 14 weeks of my life

    Now I will start off saying I was in one of the remote classes, but the time spent will be remembered well. 14 weeks of cramming coding knowledge into my brain. I spent maybe 50-60 hours a week on the subject matter. It was intense but the instructor and class I was paired with maybe it go by so fast. Today is my graduation day and I still remember clearly the first day like it was yesterday. I learned so much and am glad i chose TE as my bootcamp.

    Good curriculum, but Part-Time program needs some improvement

     After my interest peaked in coding, I decided to go "all-in" and picked Tech Elevator as my bootcamp of choice after hearing good reviews from number of friends. The curriculum really offers a solid base for entering the development realm, and I really enjoyed the 30 week timeframe as it offered more time to digest the material. However, you get out of it what you put into it. If you study a lot and make an effort to truly learn and grasp the material, you'll do well. If you scrape by k...

    An overall great experience!

    I started this bootcamp with very limited knowledge of programming/software development and now I can say 6 months later I have my first job in the technology field as a software developer. I was an in person student at the Pittsburgh, PA campus. The campus is very nice and you have 24/7 access while attending, complete with table tennis of course! The Pathways program at TE is wonderful! They really get you ready for those first few interviews and teach you so much. Listen to them and d...

    Tech Elevator completely changed my career trajectory for the better and it accomplished that in only 16 weeks for a price that's much cheaper than getting a traditional degree.  The program is hard and will challenge you every day, but if you put in the work you will succeed. Trust the process.  Absolutely amazing teachers, academic fellows, and career services to support you every step of the way.  Start the homework the day it's given and do the pre-work before class and you will see ...

    Terrible

    The pathway program is a series of useless material, which may not be useful if you have prior work experience in literally any field. The program does not prepare you for technical interviews, which is a crucial part of the interview process for tech jobs. The 6 month job assistance offered is limited to meetings with someone from TE, who only provides generic advice. The matchmaking event was not productive, as most employers were not hiring and the few that were required a bachelor's ...

    Worth Every Minute

    At the time of this writing, I graduated 3 days ago. I was a C#/.NET Student at the Cleveland campus.

    I loved my time at Tech Elevator. My classmates were great, the instructors were knowledgable, and the Pathway Director has guided me into 4 interviews and 1 offer. The cirriculum moves extremely fast, which is a good thing. It only took 14 weeks, but I feel confident going into Junior Developer interviews. I've done technical mock interviews with friends in the tech industry, and...

    A big scam

    Where do I start? If you’re deciding on taking the online course and end up getting [name redacted] as your instructor then please run. His instruction is very poor. He does not follow the lecture code he is given by the TE curriculum team and will try and make his own and get lost and confuse you more. If you ask a question then expect everything to be answered but what you asked him..

    Wonderful experience.  They give you a good foundation on the technical side.  More importantly they prepare you for the team oriented endeavor that is programming today.  You will have to work, and the more you put in the more you get out.
