“What differentiates the ALX Software Engineering programme from any programme I have taken or heard of is its unique non-traditional approach to learning. I can testify that within 3 months I learnt more than I did in one full year of my university with the traditional education model. The programme is very intense, but the time commitment is worth it. This is the best decision that I have made. I would honestly recommend this to any serious student who wants to learn and understand every concept in software engineering deeply."
“Twelve years ago, when I had just finished my college degree, all I wanted to do was become a Software Engineer. One day, I found this amazing programme at ALX, and I am having the best time of my life studying Software Engineering. I can’t begin to imagine what joy I will have when I start using my knowledge to solve real life problems.”
“ALX enhanced my software engineering skills by providing structure around learning software development methods and providing ample practice to thoroughly absorb and apply the modules. Anyone can apply to the Software Engineering programme. 70 hours a week may seem like a lot, but while you’re doing the projects, time flies by. If you’re someone who likes solving problems, then this is a fun programme to be in. I highly recommend it!”
