Practicum’s courses are focused on teaching essential skills and knowledge that are highly sought after in today’s digital age. These courses are particularly beneficial for individuals without an IT background who seek to explore new career opportunities in the tech industry amidst the rapid pace of digitalization. Be it to reskill or upskill, the hands-on training offered to students will fully equip them with the necessary knowledge to not only kick-start their career switch to the tech field but also to refine their existing prowess.

With a dedicated Career Acceleration Program, Practicum supports its alumni with job search guidance, interview preparation, and networking opportunities to boost their chances of success.
