“Attending [the] boot camp … is the best decision I have ever made in my career path. As a freelance Graphic Designer I wanted to add a skill that will compliment my already established field. UT’s intense boot camp helped me prepare to face the real world and clients with confidence [and] to execute and deliver projects successfully. It also taught me empathy and user-centric design concepts that are helping me bridge the gap between my clients, developers, and end-users.” Sandhya A.
“I had a great experience and learned A LOT in just 6 months! I am much happier now that I am doing something that I love.” Lauren B.
“I chose to attend the boot camp when I was laid off due to Covid in March. I decided to transition into a UX/UI career path to make myself more marketable at the completion of the boot camp and beyond. It was a great decision because it gave me a much-needed jolt of career confidence in addition to the mandatory knowledge and skills to make myself attractive to employers in a growing but highly competitive space.” David C.
