Students' comments
Ivan Polulikh
One of the most exciting aspects of learning in this program is the opportunity to work in a team and exchange knowledge and experience with different people. It gives me great satisfaction when I, independently or together with a team, solve a problem. If someone says programming is complex, I respond: yes, but it is also inspiring!
Vira Petruchok
The educational process involves learning the theoretical foundations of programming and developing creative thinking, which is no less important than writing code. After the first year of studying, I realized that exploring something new is always interesting, but you need to work hard to learn something and achieve the desired result.
Roman Yefremenko
Our teachers have been working in tech for many years, so they are always ready to help with any question and share their experience. The opportunity to work in a team and learn from each other is an essential component of learning in the program. Studying here gave me more confidence in my skills and helped me understand that programming is the occupation I want to connect my future with.
