This program is ideal for students who are highly motivated, have an aptitude for logical reasoning and problem-solving, and who desire a career working in technology – either independently or as part of a team. Students who are interested in this profession should also be patient, prepared to work long hours, and enjoy a collaborative work environment.

Students are provided with the basic knowledge, skills, and abilities to qualify for career opportunities as Junior Software Developers. The program prepares graduates to enter the ICT sector through practical, hands-on projects that emphasize on quantitative reasoning, analysis and problem solving, technical writing and communications, and disciplined development of modern front-end and back-end software systems. The program also provides graduates with access to the GitHub platform where they can further develop their professional presence. This program includes an eight-week practicum.

MITT does not guarantee practicum placements and, in such situations, the Institute will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.
