PROGRAM

QWANT is open to anyone who wants to become a full-stack developer, professional software engineer, architect, data/cloud engineer, AI/ML or data scientist. Our UpSkill program is designed to help bridge the gap between employer demands for qualified developers and your skills & experience.

QWANT offers a 6-month intensive software engineering program. World class curriculum was developed by Silicon Valley experts and covers over 800 exercises and projects. Program provides its own integrated development environment, where you can evolve “top-notch” hard coding skills on various frameworks and languages.

Project-based Learning:

Students are to complete progressively more difficult and complex software projects that build key hard skills, knowledge, and understanding, as well as soft skills such as problem-solving and creativity.

Peer Code Review:

No class, no teachers means it is the coders themselves who are in charge of their development. To progress on their projects, they must rely on the strength of the group, give and receive information, be corrective and corrected in turn.

Practice & Repetition:

Confidence as a software engineer is directly related to what you’re capable of and what you know you can do, which is why practice and repetition are important.

Mentoring:

IT leaders from Kazakhstan and Silicon Valley will provide support for students and guide through projects. Our community is readily accessible and prepared to offer help as the need arises
