Web Development from the Ground Up

Galvanize Web Development is a 24-week program that teaches you how to make an impact as a contributing member of a development team. The program culminates in hiring day, where students meet potential employers, present projects, and show off everything they’ve learned.

Placement

After graduating from the Web Development program, many of our alumni pursue roles as full-stack software developers, while others pursue roles in front-end development, quality assurance engineering, product management, and sales engineering. Throughout the Galvanize program, students have the opportunity to explore these career paths and engage with professionals working in the field, as well as potential employers.

Where our Graduates Work

After leaving Galvanize, our students go on to work at some of the most exciting and innovative tech companies all across the country. Here are just a few of them:

Campus Life

At our campuses, diversity and collaboration are the norm: programmers, data scientists, and community members learn from each other and work together. With expert instructors, startups, and industry partners working side by side, there’s always someone to help you get unstuck or offer you new challenges to put your skills to the test.

Career Preparation

You will work with a Career Services Manager in the city in which you attended the program. They will help you identify your strengths and career interests, help you refine your career goals, and identify opportunities for you to connect with hiring partners. Working in tandem with each of our Career Services Managers is a Partnerships Relations Manager, dedicated to identifying, cultivating, and developing regional and national employer relationships for you and all of our Galvanize students.

Admissions

The application process for Galvanize web development takes about six weeks. You’ll get a take-home exercise, and there are also two interviews with Galvanize faculty – one to assess your goals for the program, and another to evaluate your programming ability. Programming experience isn’t required, but we are looking for advanced beginners who’ve taught themselves the basics.

Scholarships and Financial Aid

We offer partial scholarships based on merit, demonstrated financial need, and increasing participation in technology among underrepresented groups such as women, veterans, minorities, and people who identify as LGBT. We also partner with Skills Fund and Climb Credit for students who need help financing their tuition.
