Non-computer science engineers can join other professionals online to learn problem-solving concepts in new pilot programs that offer computing experience at Missouri S&T. The Computer Science Boot Camps are designed help catapult an engineer’s personal skill set to the next level.
The program consists of two eight-week boot camps provided in a synchronous delivery format with assignments, quizzes and projects. The cost is $2,000 per boot camp. Boot Camp I is a four-part course that prepares the non-computer science engineer, or natural science-educated individual who has no computing background, with an introduction to Python programming, C++ programming language, discrete mathematics and data structures. This course is a prerequisite for Boot Camp II unless the student has an industrial computing background.
Boot Camp II is a follow-on course and includes concepts on algorithms, computer architecture, operating systems and databases.
Students will receive a non-credit Certificate of Completion from Missouri S&T for each boot camp successfully completed. Students who finish both Boot Camp I and Boot Camp II satisfy the prerequisites for entry into the computer science master’s degree or graduate certificate programs at Missouri S&T. A graduate application must still be submitted and approved. Other math and GPA prerequisites may apply.
