Liz
"Rocket's bootcamp was what I needed to kickstart my career as a software engineer. In addition to the technical training, what makes the course even more valuable is its focus on developing soft skills, such as working in teams, and presenting our work to people with varying technical backgrounds. A welcome surprise was the amount of guidance we received in our job hunts, even after graduation. I'm especially grateful for the mentorship and friendship of my instructors, peers and seniors, which made the journey all the more worth while."

Grace
"After working through online courses independently, I realized that having a structured support environment was critical to building technical skills. Rocket was a great place to start - providing mentorship and guidance and also extending support with the daunting job search process. Most importantly, working through a demanding learning process with peers and supportive mentors was extremely encouraging. This gave me the confidence to do a career switch into a full-fledged software engineer - a role which I've found to be challenging but massively rewarding."

Jeremy Lim
"Having graduated from bootcamp and taking up a job as a software engineer, I have full confidence in Rocket's ability to help career switchers (like myself) make the transition. The syllabus remains focused on helping bootcampers gain employment as SWEs— from the rigorous algorithms practice (a crucial part of the SWE interview process) to having a comprehensive set of portfolio projects to show employers by the time bootcamp ends. I'm super impressed by the increasing quality and complexity of the projects that bootcampers are producing, it’s truly getting more impressive with each batch!"

Kimmi Lee
"Like everyone else, I had initial doubts and worries about a ‘career-switch’, but I developed confidence through bootcamp's curriculum and advice from instructors with industry experience. I built a strong foundation and improved on learning new things fast. Building projects from ideation to deployment, both individually and as a group, was also very valuable. I have taken away much more than I expected - not only technical skills, but career advice and meaningful connections. I will definitely recommend Rocket's bootcamp to anyone who is keen in becoming a software engineer."

We were immersed in the frontend, backend, and cloud technologies that gave us a solid foundation for dreaming and building a range of projects that I'm still proud of up till today. The student community is very diverse and hardworking. It's always interesting to see the projects they come up with. The Rocket staff are very committed to giving us good exposure to the industry through frequent talks and Q&A sessions. They are good teachers and gave much needed support in job preparation and job hunting."

"Rocket's community was one of the main reasons for me to take the leap of faith to make a career switch with them instead of other bootcamp providers. The camaraderie and energy levels of my coursemates and students of the other batches really value-added to my learning and always gave me motivation to achieve more with each project, which ultimately helped me land my current job."

"Joining Rocket's Bootcamp is one of the best learning experiences I've had. Although the journey was intense, the camaraderie of my fellow batchmates, instructors and alumni were amazing. The projects and assignments were challenging and I love that we could all do them in different levels. The Rocket network and support was really instrumental in my job search, from resume reviews (most comprehensive one I've ever had!), leetcode practice, job scrums and referrals. If you're thinking of making a career switch, definitely give Rocket's Bootcamp a shot! Life is too short to be stuck in a job you don't like."

Edward Porter
"A great bootcamp with very intelligent software engineers as teachers! The curriculum was well paced, making learning really fun and giving enough time for concepts to sink in. At the end of it, it provided me with the confidence and necessary skills to transition into a career as a developer, and more importantly, I left with the skills to teach myself new languages and the classical CS concepts."

"Rocket Academy's courses are well-rounded. They cover many aspects that a student requires to be employable as a software developer, frontend skills such as React, HTML and CSS, backend skills such as Express and NodeJS. In addition, they help students to tackle difficult algorithmic interviewing questions, which are crucial in landing a software developer job these days. Furthermore, I believe what's unique about Rocket Academy is the people and culture. The fun, learning and sharing environment in Rocket makes students and section leaders enjoy their learning and teaching."

"One of the joys of being an instructor here at Rocket Academy is the immense satisfaction you get when you see a student fully grasp the concept that they were taught. Coding isn't easy and coding while having a full-time job requires a ton of discipline. Rocket Academy's curriculum finds the right balance for curious learners who might want move to tech while still allowing them to juggle their full-time job."

Can I join Rocket’s courses while working a full-time job?

i. Coding Bootcamp has both full-time and part-time options.

ii. Full-Time Coding Bootcamp requires students to commit 10am-6pm SGT Mon-Fri for 4 months. We discourage working a full-time job while enrolled in the full-time Coding Bootcamp.

iii. Part-Time Coding Bootcamp requires students to commit 7.30-9.30pm SGT Tuesday evenings, and 10am-12pm SGT Saturday mornings, with roughly 20 hours of work per week for 8 months.

How many classes can I miss?

i. Classes are mandatory, live Zoom meetings where we review and solidify concepts through discussion and exercises.

ii. There is no strict attendance requirement for Rocket’s coding courses, but students who are not performing will be removed from their course.

I’m bad at math. Can I be a software engineer?

i. Math is not a pre-requisite for coding but logical thinking is.

ii. We believe anyone can coding given sufficient time and determination.

iii. If you’re unsure whether coding is for you, try Coding Fundamentals first!

I’ve tried coding but find it difficult. Can I still be a software engineer?

i. It is normal to find coding challenging - this is common among all software engineers. If you’re wondering whether you’re struggling more than normal, try Coding Fundamentals first.

ii. Rocket Academy provides on-demand support to students over group chat. We ask students to ask for help if they’re stuck for longer than 15 minutes, such that they do not spend too much time on relatively straightforward problems.

iii. Rocket Academy fosters a tight-knit community of learners that help each other. You will always have peers working through the same material that you can work together with and get help from. With time, you will learn.

Do I need a Computer Science degree or diploma to be a software engineer?

i. Over 95% of Rocket Academy’s graduates did not have CS degrees or diplomas prior to Rocket, and 100% of Bootcamp graduates actively applying for jobs have received software engineering offers within 6 months of graduation.

ii. Rocket Academy has had successful graduates from unrelated fields like cooking and horse racing.

iii. Coding bootcamps exist because universities are unable to produce enough engineers. Companies will hire great engineers, regardless of professional qualifications.

I can code but struggle to get a job. Should I still join Rocket Academy?

i. If you already code but need help getting a software job, chat with us and we can advise whether self-studying or joining a course is appropriate.

ii. If you already have some prior experience/knowledge in coding and would like to join Rocket's Coding Bootcamp program, we may waive the Coding Fundamentals requirement - reach out to us at hello@rocketacademy.co to find out more!

What is the difference between software engineering, programming, and coding?

There is no practical difference. Software engineering is a professional term describing strong proficiency in following a systematic process of understanding requirements, working effectively with stakeholders, and developing a solution that fulfils their needs.

What is the difference between software engineering, data science, and data analytics?

i. Software engineers build apps and the underlying “pipes” for data to flow through. There are many parts of software to work on, hence the greater demand for software roles than data roles.

ii. Data scientists build statistical models to improve products, for example to make spam classifications, product recommendations, or match drivers and riders. Data scientists typically do the math, and software engineers build the product.

iii. Data analysts derive business insights through querying data and generating reports. This is typically a less skill-intensive job that more people can do, hence there is a comparatively lower average compensation and job security than software engineer and data scientist roles.

How much do Rocket Academy's courses cost?

i. Coding Fundamentals is currently S$199 for all interested students. If you apply early, you will also be eligible for early bird discounts. Apply now!

ii. Details on Coding Bootcamp tuition fees can be found here. We accept payment via credit card, or if you are based in Singapore, PayNow. We also offer a 3-month installment plan via Atome for Singapore-based credit card users only.

iii. Payment is required prior to the start of the coding course to secure your spot in the program.

Does Rocket offer in-person classes?

i. Rocket has no physical campus and conducts classes over Zoom and Slack. This helps reduce course fees and commute time, while still achieving the best coding bootcamp outcomes.

ii. Students code together daily over video call and group chat. There are at most 10 students per instructor, enabling interactive classes where students ask questions and get feedback.
