Utica, N.Y. - M.V.C.C. in Utica will begin offering a new program this fall designed to get returning students some quick and valuable experience in coding.
If you think you might like to be a computer programmer and do some coding for a living, but don't know if you can handle a long college career ahead of you, MVCC in Utica might have just the program for you.
Starting this fall, MVCC will offer what it calls the MVCC Code Academy.
It's a four class program that will give returning students the tools that many software employers are looking for.
The MVCC Code Academy will entail two classes this fall, and two more next spring.
Jake Mihevic, Dean of Science Engineering Technology and Math at MVCC, says the program is an intense program, but by next summer you may be able to get a good paying job with this experience under your belt, "It's rigorous, you have to be a dedicated student. It's best for students that have a background in, or we're good at, science or technology in college or in high school, people who can think logically, have an analytically structured mind, so it's not for everyone and it is rigorous but it's a lucrative field and the demand for coders is so great in this area that the more the better."
