Fullstack Academy and Cleveland State University Partner to Bring Accelerated Tech Skills Training to Ohio
Fullstack Academy, a national tech education provider, announced a partnership with Cleveland State University (CSU) to bring an accelerated tech skills training program to Ohio, which will qualify students for well-paying, in-demand jobs across the state.
The Cleveland State University Tech Bootcamps will help close the region’s skills gap by offering three unique tracks, teaching highly marketable skills in either cybersecurity, coding or data analytics in just 26 weeks. With LinkedIn reporting nearly 1,000 available entry-level tech positions across Ohio, graduates will be properly equipped and prepared to immediately enter the workforce.

“Cleveland is quickly establishing itself as an attractive market for tech talent as industry professionals continue to migrate to the region for employment outside of the traditional U.S. tech hubs,” said Mogan Subramaniam, President of Fullstack Academy. “From some of the country’s largest corporations to the state’s promising startups, several opportunities exist for those aiming to change careers and enter a growing industry. By joining forces with a reputable partner in Cleveland State, we are well suited to help Ohio continue to grow its tech presence in the Midwest.”
Ohio is home to some of the nation’s largest corporations including Progressive, Anthem Blue Cross, Nestle, Sherwin Williams, and Deloitte. Since many of these major organizations, among others, employ large tech departments to keep up with evolving markets, Burning Glass predicts the region will experience a workforce growth of nearly 25% in cybersecurity and 6-8% in coding and data analytics over the next decade. Further, recent LinkedIn data shows that Cleveland was the second biggest gainer of tech workers in 2020.
Expanding our learning opportunities to help professionals further their education and meet the market’s needs is one of our top priorities, especially in today’s landscape where many individuals are looking to re-enter the workforce or embark on a new career path,” said Nancy Pratt, Executive Director of the Division of Continuing and Extended Education at Cleveland State University. “Teaming with Fullstack Academy will enable us to offer a proven, accelerated training program that enhances individuals’ skillsets and supports our region’s growth.”
The program, which does not require CSU enrollment, will begin accepting applications in early summer. Fullstack Academy will offer scholarships for CSU alumni, students, employees, and active military or veterans. Individuals can complete an interest form to be notified when applications open.
