Combine foundational learning with hands-on experience

UCSD Extended Studies bootcamps are designed to outfit students with the skills you need to bridge the gaps in the current job market. Our California-based tech bootcamps teach more than the technical foundations and concepts; students apply these concepts in a hands-on, end-to-end manner that mirrors work you’ll be doing on the job. 

For example, our machine learning engineering and AI online bootcamp features 10+ projects and a capstone project, where you’ll build and deploy a realistic, complete ML application. In fact, of the 450+ hours of core and optional work it takes to complete this bootcamp, 200 hours are dedicated to projects and hands-on exercises. 

1:1 support from enrollment through career search

Our support team will help you every step of the way, from defining your learning goals, to capstone completion, and into your job search. 

  • Student advisor: Your student advisor will support you through the course.

  • Personal expert mentor: Glean technical guidance, career advice, and be held accountable in 1:1 calls with your industry mentor. 

  • Career coach: Career support is optional, but your 1:1 coach is ready to provide feedback on your resume, help you refine your pitch and job search strategy, and more. 

  • Online community: Network and share ideas with other mentors and bootcamp students.

Having a personal mentor will help you build your skills faster and advance your personal growth.
