The study measured the bootcamps against computer science departments at eight colleges, finding that “coding bootcamps offered competitive employment results compared to computer science degrees from top universities, at around 10% of the cost.”┬áMost of the bootcamps had lower alumni employment rates at the major tech companies compared to the most prestigious institutions likes University of California-Berkeley, Stanford University, and Cornell University.┬áBut average employment at major tech companies was similar for computer science graduates and bootcamp alumni overall, according to the study. Product School, App Academy, and Coding Dojo managed to beat out alumni of the computer science departments at The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Georgetown University, and Boston University for jobs at the Big Five.
