Fullstack Academy And University Of New Mexico Continuing Education Partner To Enhance Access To Tech Education
Part-time, 26-week cybersecurity and DevOps bootcamps will strengthen New Mexico’s talent pool of tech professionals
Fullstack Academy, a national tech education provider, announced it has partnered with University of New Mexico (UNM) Continuing Education to offer immersive learning programs that will prepare learners for well-paying, in-demand jobs in just 26 weeks.
The new program includes a cybersecurity bootcamp and DevOps bootcamp—sectors with increasing demand for skilled professionals. In the next 10 years, Burning Glass projects the cybersecurity and DevOps job markets in New Mexico will experience a 37% and 21% growth rate, respectively.
“The partnership provides an opportunity for working professionals with little-to-no tech skills to change careers and enter a rapidly growing industry, all while remaining in the workforce,” said Audrey Arnold, Executive Director of UNM Continuing Education. “We recognize the impact Fullstack Academy’s bootcamp programs have delivered across the country. This partnership will quickly increase the region’s pool of qualified professionals, supporting entrepreneurship as well as New Mexico-based organizations as their businesses continue to scale.”
In recent years, Albuquerque and New Mexico have welcomed several tech-oriented companies to the region, establishing itself as an attractive destination for startups and expansions. For example, Facebook recently completed a data center in Los Lunas, New Mexico, with plans for additional campus expansion by 2023.
“With the continued growth of local corporations and the migration of major tech players, New Mexico is poised to experience a similar advancement in tech as many other U.S. markets,” said Mogan Subramaniam, President of Fullstack Academy. “Through our partnership with UNM Continuing Education, individuals, no matter their professional background, can quickly pursue a career in tech.”
UNM Tech Bootcamps will begin accepting applications in October. In addition to several optional financing programs, Fullstack Academy will expand access to its bootcamps by offering scholarships to UNM alumni, students, employees and active military or veterans. Individuals can complete an interest form to be notified when applications open.
