“At Netflix, we see the power of technology to introduce us to other communities and cultures every day,” the statement read. “Creating space in the industry for all voices will only make it stronger.”
The program for students and class of 2019 and 2020 alumni will launch at NSU in January 2021, the company said. It will be a 16-week program that will take in 130 students. Participants in the program can choose from three program tracks that include Java engineering, UX/UI design and data science.
“Students who are accepted receive a Netflix scholarship to cover the cost of attendance, and they’ll get course credit for completing the boot camp,” the company’s statement read. “The goal is for participants to come away better equipped with industry-relevant skills to enter today’s workforce, and with valuable, long-lasting relationships.”
