RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Revature, a leading technology talent development company today announced a strategic partnership with Arizona State University (ASU), to provide free, industry-aligned coding bootcamps for ASU graduates. The 12-week on-campus programs, exclusive to the university’s graduates, effectively provide digital language training, an added tool or dimension for the broadly educated ASU grads.
ASU educates and graduates “master learners,” critical thinkers who have developed the capacity to learn anything, making them adaptive in a constantly changing workforce and economy. The Revature program offers them, at no cost, a complementary skill in the internet age.
The program also provides Revature with access to graduates who have received a high-quality education at ASU. Revature recognizes the value of ASU’s emphasis on individual paths to education that help students develop into problem solvers. The company’s talent development program will provide pathways to careers in software development for ASU students from an array of undergraduate majors – arts, humanities, social sciences, computer science or engineering.
“ASU is a perfect partner for us,” said Srikanth Ramachandran, Revature’s CEO. “Combining ASU’s academic excellence with Revature’s accessible approach to IT training and placement will create a rich and diverse talent pool of highly desirable technology professionals to support workforce needs in Phoenix and the region.”
Revature at ASU is expected to hire 1,000 ASU graduates over the next five years.
“ASU encourages students to explore and make discoveries outside the boundaries of traditional academic disciplines,” said Mark Searle, Executive Vice President & University Provost at ASU. “These master learners graduate with the ability to quickly acquire new skills and absorb new subjects throughout their lives, and this program provides a useful tool that can help them in a digital era.”
For current ASU students as well as graduates, Revature will also provide its custom online learning platform, RevaturePro, where students will learn enterprise-level programing skills at their own pace and receive dedicated support from Revature’s industry mentors. RevaturePro features 18 free online training programs supporting all levels from beginner to advanced where students can learn Java, Microsoft.NET and other front-end development languages.
“We are delighted to provide online and in-person training pathways for all ASU students and graduates who may be interested in a career in software development,” Joe Mitchell, Revature’s Senior Vice President for Academic Partnerships.
Revature at ASU will begin accepting applications in September for the fall bootcamp, to be held at SkySong, the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center. More information about the program is available at revature.com/ASU.
