How It Works
The Part-Time Software Engineering Immersive is intended for intermediate coders.
All Fullstack Academy Coding Bootcamps are divided into 3 phases.
The self-paced, online Foundations course is intended for intermediate coders with some experience to independently prepare for the core curriculum. You’ll learn through videos, workshops, and digital exercises for 15-30 hours per week over 4 weeks—with access to a discussion forum and mentor guidance throughout.

HTML and CSS
Web development environment and industry-standard tools
Immersive digital tools
Self-paced learning through video instruction and virtual coding sessions
Real-time support via our LMS help desk and student forum
Hands-on projects and activities
Core Curriculum: Junior Phase
Throughout this rigorous second phase, you’ll be studying to master technical skills and professional coding communication.
Junior Phase Software Engineering Curriculum
Front-end development. User expectations of Web and Mobile Applications have significantly increased in the last 10 years, and the sophistication of front-end development has increased to match it. You will study HTML5 and advanced CSS, and go beyond with modern technologies like React.
Databases. You will then master data organization and storage by working with popular SQL relational databases like Postgres, and learn how to integrate them into your applications.
Junior Phase Features
Pair Programming. Working with a fellow student, you’ll each use your newfound knowledge to write and optimize front-end and back-end code. This helps you build real-world experience and prepare for industry standard, technical coding interviews.
Interview Prep. You’ll learn the basics of standard interviewing Q&A and start to integrate these best practices into pair programming communications.
Core Curriculum: Senior Phase
At this point, you’ll have a solid understanding of the technologies taught in the immersive program. The Senior phase is your time to put that knowledge to use by building fully functional web applications from scratch. You will continue to study full-time during this phase–deepening your knowledge by solving real-world problems and applying best practices to your work.
Senior Phase Software Engineering Curriculum
Guided team project. You’ll join a group of 3-4 students to collectively create a functional e-commerce site–building all the components of a web application including the front-end, back-end, and database.
Personal project. After formulating your own idea for a web or mobile application, you’ll start to build it from scratch. You will take design considerations into account, like user experience and information architecture in addition to full stack development. You will learn new technologies or libraries in order to complete this project, which will help you learn how to learn advanced coding concepts throughout your career.
Capstone project. You will work with a team of students to come up with an ambitious idea for an app, and build it out over 2 weeks. This will be the most impressive project in your portfolio and will demonstrate your full understanding of software development and industry best practices.
Senior Phase Features
- Career Coaching. Fullstack Academy’s Career Coaches are your one-stop professional development resource. They’ll work with you on core aspects of the job search–from technical interview preparation to resume optimization–throughout the Senior phase of your coding journey and beyond.

Fullstack Academy Graduates Get Hired by Industry Leaders
With an in-depth curriculum spanning computer science fundamentals to front-end and back-end web development, the part-time Software Engineering Bootcamp is best for motivated, intermediate-level students who are passionate about tech–but don’t want to quit their job or other full-time, daily commitments.
Our part-time coding bootcamp is designed to engage and challenge students throughout their coding journey in standard, accelerated Fullstack Academy fashion. That’s why we’ve developed a thoughtful, comprehensive application process to ensure prospective students are a good fit for the program–and vice-versa!
Here’s what we look for in prospective students.
You’re willing to demonstrate your intermediate-level coding prowess and are determined to become a developer.
We look for students who are considerate, collaborative, and driven.
No matter where your interests take you, you’re always continuing to learn and grow along the way.
Fullstack Academy grads make up a network of 5,500+ tech professionals around the country.
A word of advice to older prospective students like myself. You may be frustrated where you are right now but afraid to make the leap, to quit your job, to spend your savings on a bootcamp, to take three months to learn, to work 80 hours a week. I promise it’s worth it.
Front-End Engineer, Amazon
Fullstack Academy is, by all measures, the best investment I have made to date, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody considering it, especially those with little to no prior programming knowledge. I will note, however, that hard, consistent, and dedicated individual work is a must if you want to make the most out of the Fullstack investment.
Software Engineer, Google
The instructors are always available for one-on-one help and will take the time to guide you through questions and problems. Their level of engagement in each student's learning process is what sets Fullstack apart.
Software Engineer, RUN
Within 4 weeks, I received 2 job offers at companies I was really excited about. During my interviews, both companies were pleasantly surprised by how knowledgable and capable a bootcamp grad could be. Truly, I owe it all to Fullstack Academy's education and preparation.
Full-Stack Developer, PreparedHealth
No matter where you are in your coding journey, you can hone the skills, knowledge, and practical experience of a professional web developer with Fullstack Academy. As a trusted trailblazer in tech education, we’ve helped over 5,500 students graduate job-ready and with a robust portfolio to build lasting, thriving careers in tech.
There are a great number of online resources available and we encourage you to try them. Particularly for beginners, tools like Codecademy, Code School, and Team Treehouse can help you learn and practice in-demand coding concepts.
At Fullstack Academy, learning and practicing coding concepts are only part of the equation. Our bootcamps are built around ensuring students have everything they need to build a thriving career–all within an accelerated, supportive, and career-focused environment for learning.
We love Ruby on Rails and Python/Django. However, the web industry waits for no developer or technology.
The future of web development has moved toward sophisticated, responsive, and dynamic “single page” applications running in the browser. Apps like Gmail, Asana, Trello, Facebook, and Google Maps have redefined what users expect from “web applications” and what developers need to deliver.
What about Ruby on Rails? Why are other schools teaching Rails?
When we first discovered Rails in 2005, developers were coming from an age where PHP back-end sites were getting increasingly complex and were becoming difficult to manage and scale. Rails excelled in this world, where the goal was still to develop HTML/CSS-centric web interfaces with heavy back-ends. Rails consolidated many best practices in back-end web development and made it easier for developers to build large sites in an organized way.
We recommend applying at least two weeks prior to your desired cohort start date - the earlier the better. This will allow you time to take the no-risk admissions assessment, receive your admissions decision, and complete your enrollment materials.
Our organization is based in one of the greatest cities on Earth - New York City! However, all bootcamps offered by Fullstack Academy and the Grace Hopper Program are held in a live online format.
As part of our commitment to delivering a high-quality student experience as well as considerations resulting from Covid-19, we aim to meet the moment with a bootcamp format that’s more practical, versatile, and accessible to students nationwide.
