Coding and web development is one of the most in-demand careers and is expected to increase 27% in the next decade, which is 4x faster than the expected overall US job growth average.

Want to separate yourself and your resume from the pack and learn a new set of skills in months? Oregon State University's in-depth Java | .Net coding boot camp, developed in partnership with The Software Guild, is designed to provide you with a defined career path, in-depth coverage of software development and connection to a robust employer network.

Why Learn Coding?

Java and .NET/C# are stable, proven, and in high demand. Not only are these languages proven, but they continue to grow. As companies move out of the start-up phase and into long-term growth, they need the languages that will scale with them. That’s where these languages, and your skills, are so critical.

In addition to being in demand, learning these languages also gives you flexibility. Java and C# are both based on the C language, so your skills are easily transferable between both stacks as well as C++ and Objective-C. With our program, you won’t just become proficient at coding; you will be taught how to learn coding languages, meaning you can keep your skills fresh long after you graduate.


Combining a comprehensive curriculum focused on application with a uniquely collaborative and immersive setting, this coding program is designed to prepare you for entry-level software development jobs.

Essentially with this 10-month certificate, you will jump-start your new career:

  • The Languages Employers Are Looking For: Choose either .NET/C# or Java, which are two of the most popular languages for Fortune 500 companies.

  • Highly Trained Faculty: Learn from experienced instructors who average more than 10 years of industry experience.

  • Real World and In-Demand Skills

  • Military-Style Efficiency: Learn an entirely new set of skills online in 10 months won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.

The result is that you'll graduate with a resume-worthy credential from OSU & The Software Guild, which both carry respected name recognition. And since it’s online, you’ll be able to keep your schedule and learn when it’s most convenient for you.

There are 300+ employers in the coding boot camp network. These employers know the quality of our graduates and are prepared to hire them.

What Is the Software Guild?

Not all coding boot camps are created equal. Before you can even become a student (aka "apprentice"), you'll need to take and pass an aptitude test, which helps determine whether you'd be a good candidate for the accelerated and face-paced learning environment. With the selective nature of the program, you'll be in small classes that feature 1:12 student/teacher ratio. And once you complete it you can join a professional network and interact with past, present, and future guild members as well as access to 300 employers in our hiring network, with more being added every day.


What Have Past Students Thought About This Coding Boot Camp?

“Prior to attending the Software Guild, I had a job. But now, I have a career in a field that I love, and that wouldn’t be possible without the Guild. I took a huge risk leaving a job that paid well to pursue something that I was passionate about. Before the course was even completed, I had already received an offer and started working the very next week in a great company where I can grow as a developer.” – Garrett Johnson

“I felt very fortunate that we had such a great teacher that cared for us a lot. It was a small class, and everyone was smart, capable and engaged. And we had a lot of fun too… They advertise the ‘family’ Guild feel and that certainly holds true for sure. The program was definitely worth it.” - Michael Johnson, on campus Software Guild alumni

Online Convenience

With online, you'll get to access to the course and can learn when it's most convenient to you and your schedule.

Lectures are conducted via video, and instructors are available via instant messaging or email to answer questions. Just like a traditional classroom, you’ll be able to ask questions and work directly with the professor and your classmates.
