    I have just finished the UCI bootcamp 6 months part time full stack web development.

    It was all in all a great experience. I have learnt a lot in a relatively short period of time. 

    The curriculum was really strong and it covered most of the trending coding topics

    The instructors were amazing.Forrest is very knowledgable and have excellent teaching skills. He was always able to help with the code and can fix any problem what so ever. Kyle the TA was very dedicated to helping us , he was always there in class, on slack helping and sending tutorials.

    The career service, Jeff and Jenna, where so nice, they where always reachable and tried to help us as much as they could

    There is still some room for improvement in the job assistance par but I am sure they'll get there with time

     I had the pleasure of completing the Data Analysis and Visualization Bootcamp at UCI. 
    I can say without a doubt that Anthony’s class is one of the best I have ever had throughout my entire education career. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about teaching and genuinely cares about his student. 
    He went beyond the curriculum and took time and energy well beyond the allocated time slot for the class to improve and made sure that we had a great learning experience. He made the material interesting and easier to learn. I am so grateful for my experience with him. Mark and Kevin our Teaching Assistants were awesome. Jeff (Admin) was always kind and truly cared about student’s success.

    This course was a valuable experience for those looking to enhance their skill sets in the field of data analytics or for those just beginning. Under the great care of Anthony Taylor (instructor) and diligence of the TAs (Mark and Kevin Nguyen), I was able to excel academically and find my footing in each topic of discussion. For those with additional full time jobs, the pace and support is appropriate to support personal and work needs. Each project appropriately combines all class content while also giving you freedom to showcase your talents and proactive abilities.

    Data Visualization and Analysis boot camp that updates the participant with modern, relevant technical skills over a 6 month period.  The assignments are always challenging, and the knowledge gained is invaluable.  The best thing about this course is the value the instructors and the TAs bring to the students.  I've completed my MBA program at USC, and the way the class is run reminds me of my professors and classes at my MBA program, which projects as a professional environment.  Classes are always engaging, and more often than not, the instructions are geared towards understanding and not lecturing.  During COVID, the challenges of transitioning to an online structure was less than ideal, but the instructors and TAs did well in supporting the students.  Although I wished I had more interactions with the other students in person, we were still able to build relationships with our Zoom meetings.  Our instructor, Joy, and the TAs, Hoan and Tarique, were just phenomenal in their guidance and support.  I have graduated feeling that I'm now armed with technological skills that will be invaluable in my future job environment.

    Now, I am moving towards my career guidance part of the program, and I intend to take advantage of all that is offered in support of finding my dream job.

    Full stack web development course was 3 months full-time from Nov. 5 - Feb. 14. VERY intense so you need to be prepared to work 30-40 hours OUTSIDE of class to keep up. I wouldn't recommend working a full-time job during this time. It was hard work, so be prepared to study every night and let family and friends know your week-ends will be busy. Teachers and TAs were FANTASTIC!! Our teacher, Taylor Blanche is very knowledgeable, helpful and even had weekly 2 hour zoom calls after hours to address questions or topics that people weren't clear on. Great class!  I highly recommend it for learning web development skills vs trying to do it on your own.

    There are so many different bootcamp out there, but I am so glad that I landed my on UCI Data Analytic Bootcamp!! The bootcamp allowed me to equip with newest tech skill to enter data world, and the program provide variety of aspect to better explore student's need, like getting a buffet we get to choose what to keep in the plate. But the highlight of this entire bootcamp experience was actually our instructor and his team support him in the back. We had so much to learn in the course, but because we had a great teacher that everything was made possible. The instructor so willing to help student that he consistently host review session so everyone can have their chance to get more question answered. In addition, our TA were all very passion about their own work, so they were able to convey that energy and to help each student in class. Lastly, the career services and the student success manager REALLY look out for each of us, and making sure we had all we need to thrive. It is really hard to find people who actually care, and do all their best to support you in all level. 

    The bootcamp is not a easy thing, it does require student to put in a lot of effort and time to be able to really get a grasp of it. With the program set up and the support from career service, I am more than ready to face new challenge after the program end.

    I will STRONGLY recommend this Data Analytic Bootcamp from UCI for anyone.

    The UCI bootcamp is a great investment for developers interested to add web technologies to their toolbelt.  It offers a good challenge, and bring you up to speed in We development using Mongo DB, Express, React, and Nod JS (MERN).

    I am a software developer falling behind in web technologies. This bootcamp brought me up to speed. Yes, is hard to have to work and attend classes, with homework and projects, but it really pays off once you reach the finish line. The transformation is amazing.

    I had some design background, but I wanted to pursure a higher understanding of the research and testing methoods of UX Design. I looked into a lot of different programs and I felt that the 6-month program at Trilogy's UCI Boot Camp was the most benificial. 10 weeks is not enough time to digest all the information that you are going to get in a boot camp like this. I also felt that the UCI name attached to this program would be wel recieved and more respectable (I learned that a lot of the 10 week programs have gotten a negative stigma for how quickly they pump students out). 

    The class went great, there were only about 30 students and everyone was very motivated and excited to learn. The instructor was amazing and had an extensive knowledge and tons of real-world experience in the field. We meet 3 days a week and had plenty of time between classes to study materials, complete assigments and still have a job and a life. 

    The career services was very helpful and the Career Director that was assigned to me was a great help in preparing for applying and interviewing for new jobs. She was a very valuable resource through my process and was crucial to me getting a position. 

    I was hired a as UX Designer 4 months after completing the program.

    You'd be better served just teaching yourself, since this is pretty much what you'll be doing most of the time anyway.

    After spending some time trying to teach myself to code for some work projects, I figured it was time to get some professional training and be more efficient in my learning. This course was pretty much the only one that offered a classroom experience and part-time option for working professionals, and it had decent reviews. I also assumed that since this course was affiliated with a prestigious university, namely UCI, it would be legit.

    Man was I wrong. I'm part-way though this course, I've always been top of my class, and I get most of the material, but this course is shit. It's not organized, I mean really not well structured at all. It's also put on by Trilogy Education, not UCI. They offer pretty much zero resources of their own so everything you're looking at is what someone else put together and it's just not coherent.

    For $10k, I could've hired an experienced developer to teach me more in a few weeks than I will in 6 months. What a monumental waste of time. I have walked away with some new knowledge and skills, but it's because I put in a lot of work outside of class and taught myself, or worked with TA's on the side. So dissapointing. If I can save just one of you from such a terrible experience, please listen. DO NOT TAKE THIS COURSE.

    Hi Blake, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. It sounds like you're frustrated with the amount of outside work needed to master the material. To give our students a solid full-stack foundation in an intensive, part-time format, our instructors do cover a great deal of knowledge in a limited amount of time. Our goal is to make sure students are clear before enrolling that they will need to spend 20-30 hours a week studying outside of class to be job-ready by graduation. For anyone struggling with the concepts presented, we do offer weekly one-on-one tutoring, TA hours, a wealth of subject materials to aid compression, and a student success manager to get back on track.

    We've found that the soft skills gained through structured self-study, such as problem-solving, perseverance, and self-teaching, are critical for success in today's workplace. Similarly, this methodology fosters a more structured and motivational technique of self-study, especially for individuals such as yourself, who have previously attempted to teach themselves how to code. While our curriculum is regularly updated based on market demand, we want our students to graduate with the skills to quickly learn new frameworks and languages on their own, as the technical job market is always changing.

    As the course progresses, most students do feel more and more confident in their skills, knowledge, and mastery of the material. We hope that this the case for you as well. We are constantly striving to improve the classroom experience through a variety of practices including weekly student feedback forms, video audits of the classroom, and instructor coaching sessions. Our team is continually updating our course material and instructional support to ensure students have the best learning experience possible, so we appreciate your input. 

    As you noted, the UCI Division of Continuing Education has partnered with Trilogy Education Services (TES) to develop the UCI Coding Boot Camp. TES is a leading workforce accelerator that has partnered with more than 35 top universities to support their skills-based learning program efforts in order to provide invaluable support to every single boot camp participant. Both UCI and TES aim to be transparent about this partnership through our websites, marketing, admissions process, enrollment materials, and throughout the course experience. UCI is deeply involved in the curriculum and outcomes for all of their programs. Our main priority is and will continue to always be the success of our students.

    This is a rigorous and fast-paced program, so we commend all the hard work and practice you have dedicated to reaching the halfway point. We sincerely care about our students and would like to further discuss your current experience with you to ensure you have the necessary support you may need as you approach the final months of your boot camp journey.

    In early June, 2018 I applied to the UX/UI boot camp at UC Irvine.  I went through a standard application process and worked with advisors who were helpful.  After being admitted to the program, which was set to start Aug 18, 2018, I paid a $2,500.00 deductible and signed a contract with Trilogy Ed. One week after submitting payment and a contract I was notified that the program was moved to September.  Then, two days later, I was notified that the program was cancelled until further notice.  This happened the first week of July, and I have yet to receive my refund.  Today, 7/30/2018 is the first time I have official confirmation that I am even in the process of getting my money refunded.  This was a huge decision for me both financially and in my current career, and this program blew it off as nothing.  I advise future applicants to beware of placing their trust in this program after my experience.

    Hi Elizabeth, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We regret your experience did not meet your expectations. We understand what a big life decision applying and enrolling in our course is for our students. You are correct that due to student feedback, the start date for the August cohort that you were originally enrolled in was postponed until 2019; this deferment will allow us to make modifications to the course curriculum in order to deliver a robust program for your future training needs.

    We apologize for not initiating a more prompt refund following the cancellation of your class, as we know you made a substantial investment in your education. Unfortunately, we could not begin your refund process until after we verified a transfer could not be made to the remaining UX/UI cohort. When our admissions coordinator emailed you back in regard to processing your reimbursement, we did note that the request could take a few weeks - as evidenced by your refund being successfully issued on Monday. We strive to be communicative throughout every step of our process and understand a swift and responsive reply on our part could have provided a more seamless experience for you.

    We are looking forward to reintroducing the UX/UI program in the upcoming year and hope you will reconsider us once again. We are constantly striving to improve our student experience, so we truly value your input in this matter. We would love to hear from you directly to further discuss your concerns.
