Software development is Woz U’s largest track and includes several programming languages as well as fundamentals and core software engineering. The breadth of the track allows Woz U to tailor the tools in the program to match the demand in a given city, according to Coleman. Adult education is the largest focus right now: Most of Woz U’s students are in the 25-35 year age range, with almost two-thirds already holding a degree and looking for a second career, Coleman said. There’s also a lot of opportunity for Woz U to partner with existing institutions that don’t have the resources they need to run a technology education program and help fill those needs. But universities alone aren’t producing enough computer science talent to fill all the openings, and with even more digital jobs expected in coming years, alternative paths to recruitment are becoming more popular.
