  • Career changers who are currently working in an unrelated field and want to future proof their careers with in-demand skills
  • Those working in tech-adjacent roles who want to upskill and broaden their opportunities in a fully technical role
  • People re-entering the workforce after a break and looking to retrain

Some students are keen to launch their own business or tech startup right after graduating.
