Real-world learning for real-world success

Holberton Way

Holberton has decided to take an innovative approach to educate its students for a career in software engineering. We do this by focusing on and engaging our students in project-based and peer learning. As a result, students will develop critical thinking, problem-solving skills, project management, time management, researching information, goal setting and learn how to prioritize. Thus, providing our graduates with the academic, cognitive, and professional skills necessary for career advancement.

Learn from others

Peer-based learning emphasizes comprehension and teaches students the ability to learn in a collaborative environment. Project-based learning results in a greater depth of understanding of concepts, a broader knowledge base, critical thinking skills, and increased creativity. This approach also gives students the opportunity to explore problems and challenges that have real-world applications, increasing their long-term retention of ever-evolving skills and concepts and the ability to apply them once on the job.

Learn by doing

Project-based learning closely resembles what happens in a software engineer’s work environment. As a software or operations engineer, the job is about completing projects and solving problems. Graduates will need to collaborate with colleagues – not only engineers – and search for the information and tools that will enable them to accomplish their objectives and complete their respective work. As a result, students who graduate from our program are much better equipped to work in the tech field and to also learn relevant information very quickly, thereby ensuring their adaptability throughout the ever-evolving technological landscape

We succeed when you succeed

The benefits of attending Holberton are life changing — professionally, personally and socially. You’ll discover innovative ways to realize your potential, and develop interests and passions within your field.

Holberton is making quality education more accessible by removing financial barriers to education. Our flexible payment options alleviate many common financial concerns for students. 

Learn how to learn

At Holberton, we don’t just teach you how to code or give the answers to the problems — in the real world, that’s not how it works.
Instead, the intensive curriculum is designed around collaborative, project-based learning that trains you in the problem solving skills that will help you land a job, and the learning skills that will help you sustain your career.
You are trained, challenged, and tested on the technologies of today, but the learning skills you develop here will prepare you to adapt to and learn the technologies and the coding languages of tomorrow.

“Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you don’t look like an engineer. A software engineer doesn’t have just one archetype, and Holberton gives students of all types and backgrounds an opportunity to expand their careers and their minds. As a beauty queen, and a woman of color, I’m proud to be a software engineer and blaze a trail for all others to know that you don’t have to just be one thing.”

— Talisha White, Holberton Cohort 13 Student

“Anyone can learn to code! Computing can be found everywhere in today’s world. Building solutions to real-world problems requires software engineers with diversity of thought and experiences. Holberton not only also recognizes that diversity and collaboration are important, but actively removes barriers to foster diverse coders and uses peer-learning as a critical component of developing both our technical and soft skills.”

– Kelsie, Holberton Cohort 11 Tulsa

“Today’s world is changing at an unfathomable pace. Technology is the engine of this revolution, and it’s all built on code! There’s no denying that code will only become more ubiquitous in every facet of our society as we continue to integrate more technology into our daily lives. Learning to code will allow you to participate in creating novel solutions that help make our world a better place, no matter your interests! Holberton is a place that will welcome you with open arms regardless of your background or circumstance, and foster the breadth of foundational skills, both technical and interpersonal, that you’ll need to be successful as a programmer!”

— Colson Scott, Holberton Cohort 11 Student
