My experience with Columbia Engineering FinTech Boot Camp was absolutely phenomenal! I can confidently attest that I have improved a lot in my technical and computational skills. It truly feels like a miracle! I am deeply grateful for my mentor and all the TAs, as they have all instructed us in such a professional, organized, and intuitive manner. From all the useful resources gained from each class to the smooth and improved workflow during my projects, I can’t believe I learned so many things.

When I heard about Columbia’s FinTech boot camp, I jumped on that opportunity right away. It really was invaluable because it covered so many topics that I don’t think I would have been introduced to on the job. The projects really accelerated my knowledge in a technical sense and added more than just concepts. It took a little bit more time for me to apply these skills at work, but the boot camp gave me a foundation to move forward. It not only helped me get to what I thought my goal was, but beyond. I don’t think I really would’ve been able to achieve the engineering role that I’m in now so soon if I hadn’t taken this next step.
