Higher Education with the student at the center.

Make School Students

You'll spend two years developing the hard and soft skills needed to succeed in the tech industry

Year 1

Everyday I learn new topics in the manner a junior developer might at a tech company. Every project I work on is a real product that can amass real users. I am building products that tackle problems in industries and topics such as education, health, social work, politics, smart homes, e-commerce, civic engagement and more.


Year 2

My learning is more advanced and self-regulated. Instructors encourage me to engage in efforts such as software contracting and building a startup. I am graduating with a mix of in-class knowledge and real-world experience.


After Make School

I am a Maker with the skillset to create deep impact in the world. I have an awesome job building software that changes lives. I have friends who are creating the most innovative products in the technology industry. I’m going to be an entrepreneur, developer, innovator, force for good.
