Let’s launch your tech career today. Your career, our #1 priority.

At Rocket Academy, we’re building a community of empowered and highly-skilled talents ready to thrive in the tech space. Our comprehensive Coding Fundamentals and Coding Bootcamp courses are designed to support students every step of the way as they launch their programming careers.

Building portfolio, sharpening technical excellence, and unlocking opportunities — that’s what we do here at Rocket Academy.

Meet our founder, Kai

Hello! I am founder and CEO at Rocket Academy, an online coding bootcamp based in Singapore. I completed my Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Computer Science at Stanford University. Prior to Rocket, I was a software engineer at Southeast-Asian student loan startup ErudiFi and American healthcare analytics startup Nuna. While in university I also interned at Facebook and Alibaba Cloud.

I started Rocket Academy because the world lacks software engineering talent, and people that had not studied Computer Science but wish to become software engineers have few good ways to do so. We aim to train large numbers of high-calibre software engineers through our selective and comprehensive courses, to help as many land a tech career they'll enjoy.

From a broader perspective, I want to be an entrepreneur who gives back. Every country needs homegrown MNCs to grow their economy and create opportunities for their people. I hope Rocket Academy can be one such company, and that we inspire others to build even more successful companies for the benefit of Singapore, Southeast Asia and the world.

"Teaching has been incredibly rewarding because of the professional and social impact on students. So far 100% of our Bootcamp graduates applying for jobs have received offers within 6 months of graduating. I look forward to helping more students achieve their potential, and seeing our graduates reach greater heights."

Students, employers & instructors love us

"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 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: weekly check-ins, feedback on resumes and portfolios, and preparing for interviews. I'm especially grateful for the mentorship and friendship of my instructors, peers and seniors, which made the journey all the more worth while. Thanks to Rocket, it was possible for me to pursue a different career, and I'm glad to have made it with the relevant skills and some new friends too."

Liz

Software Developer

"I had always been envious of how engineers could morph an idea into a tangible product. After working through online courses independently, I quickly realized that having a structured support environment would be critical to building technical skills. Rocket was a great place to start out - providing mentorship and guidance not only throughout the bootcamp but also extending into 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. Thank you Rocket Academy for helping me to get here - excited to see what is to come!"

Grace

Software Engineer

"I was from Rocket's first batch of bootcampers. Having graduated from bootcamp and taking up a job as a software engineer (SWE), I have full confidence in Rocket's ability to help career switchers (like myself) make the transition. The syllabus is 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. Am also super impressed by the increasing quality and complexity of the projects that bootcampers are producing, It's truly getting more impressive with each batch!"

Jeremy Lim

Software Engineer

"Like anyone else, I had initial doubts and worries about a ‘career-switch’, but I developed confidence through the bootcamp curriculum and advice from instructors with industry experience. I was able to build a strong foundation but also improve on learning new things fast - a skill that I greatly appreciate as a software engineer now. I have taken away much more than I expected from my journey with Rocket Academy - not only technical skills, but also career advice as well as meaningful connections - and will definitely recommend Rocket Academy’s bootcamp to anyone who is keen in becoming a software engineer."

Kimmi Lee

Software Engineer

"Rocket Academy gave me a supportive and vibrant community of peers, staff, alumni who are really passionate about coding and invested in our collective success. Rocket’s curriculum is not only comprehensive but taught me the important skill of how to unblock myself which is fundamental for every software engineer."

Hsiu Ping

Software Engineer

"I thoroughly enjoyed the curriculum. It was a great balance of challenge and fun, and my batch mates and I were always supported throughout the learning journey. Not only did I gain relevant technical knowledge and skills, the experience also taught me how to be independent and creative in learning and problem solving."

Ian Yip

Software Engineer

"Rocket Academy was a really challenging but extremely rewarding learning experience. 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."

Jia En

Product Engineer

"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 course mates 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."

We focus on concepts

Our bootcamp curriculum focuses on coding concepts (not languages) that match the changing demands of our students and industry needs. Throughout the program, we cover key topics like frontend and backend frameworks, cloud infrastructure, data structures and algorithms.

"Rocket runs 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."

We optimise your learning time

Our ‘flipped-classroom’ methodology ensures you receive a comprehensive curriculum and access to professional instructors who are ready and excited to answer your questions and guide you further.

"I joined Rocket Academy as a Coding Fundamentals student in 2021 with the intention to explore a possible career path while finishing my last semester in university as a music undergraduate. The flipped-classroom curriculum, which allowed for just enough guided instruction and encouraged independent learning, together with the close-knit community drew me in and I signed up for the part-time bootcamp immediately.

Like anyone else, I had initial doubts and worries about a ‘career-switch’, but I developed confidence through the bootcamp curriculum and advice from instructors with industry experience. I was able to build a strong foundation but also improve on learning new things fast - a skill that I greatly appreciate as a software engineer now. Experience on building projects from ideation to deployment, both individually and as a group, with advice and support from Kai and his team, was also very valuable.

I have taken away much more than I expected from my journey with Rocket Academy - not only technical skills, but also career advice as well as meaningful connections - and will definitely recommend Rocket Academy’s bootcamp to anyone who is keen in becoming a software engineer."
