Fall semester technest courses begin in late august! orientation is on 8/10/2019
In collaboration with MIT (CIS 106: Technest 1 - Introduction to Computer Coding Using Python) and UC Berkeley (CIS 107: Technest 2 - Data Science), the Technest program is designed to bridge Silicon Valley's wage and skills gap.
As Chancellor Breland stated: "We must open the doors of opportunity in Silicon Valley to students who traditionally have not had access to computer science curriculum."
The Technest program strives to do just that.
Interested in participating in our Fall 2019 cohort?
Plan to attend our orientation on Saturday, August 10th from 10-noon at the Milpitas Extension (1450 Escuela Parkway, Milpitas, CA 95035).

data8 with berkeleyx & sjcc
technest|SJCC in collaboration with the University of California, Berkeley (BerkeleyX) will offer an 18-week course, BerkeleyX Data 8 Foundations of Data Science on edX.
The BerkeleyX course does not require prior statistics, computer science, or programming experience.
This class will help you become a data scientist by teaching you how to analyze a diverse array of real data sets including economic data, geographic data, and social networks.
Data 8 covers everything from testing hypotheses, applying statistical inferences, visualizing distributions and drawing conclusions— all while coding in Python and using real-world data sets.
Data Scientist Is the Best Job In America According To Glassdoor’s 2018 Rankings.
python with mitx & sjcc
The technest|SJCC curriculum is designed to help those with little or no prior exposure to computer science or programming to learn to think computationally and write useful programs to tackle problems.
technest|SJCC in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MITx) will offer an 18-week course, MITx 6.00 Introduction to Computer Science on edX.
This fun and intensive course features online curriculum delivered by MITx faculty and tailored support from an SJCC instructor, blending the best of online and in-class learning.
