Springboard and Auburn University Partner to Launch 100% Online Software Engineering and UI/UX Design Pro
Students Gain Real-World Experience and Receive Support from Industry Mentors and Career Coaches to Help Them Get Hired
Springboard, the online learning platform preparing students for in-demand careers through mentor- and instructor-led programs, today announced it has partnered with Auburn University Office of Professional and Continuing Education, or OPCE, to deliver completely remote, self-paced, experiential programs in software engineering and UI/UX design that are open to the public.
The programs are designed to fit into the lives of busy working professionals who are looking for flexible opportunities to help them upskill and reskill to pursue a new career. Participants do not need any industry or academic experience and are not required to apply as degree-seeking students. Enrollment for the first cohorts is open until July 3 and classes begin on July 10. After that, students can sign up at any time to be assigned to the next monthly cohort.
"OPCE is committed to making educational resources available for non-credit programs to help people meet their educational goals and to improve their quality of life. This partnership will provide students with the knowledge and qualifications they need to join the tech workforce and better the world for future generations to come," said Shavon Williams, Assistant Director for Online Programs for Auburn University Office of Professional and Continuing Education.
