Our students embody tech excellence: They have tangible software development experience and critical, solutions-oriented thinking; they are performance and productivity-minded; they’re committed to teamwork and collaboration; and they’re ready and qualified to meet, if not exceed, any company’s high engineering standards.

Software Engineer, Mathworks

The City College of New York

"I'd like to personally thank CodePath for being such a great organization and providing students with such wonderful opportunities. From its classes, developing my technical skills and preparing me for software engineering positions, to its events like the Virtual Career Fairs, where I was able to directly meet and interact with recruiters and managers from various top tech companies, as well as progressing deep into the interview process with several of them. I would eventually end up receiving an offer from MathWorks to be a part of their EDG program as a software engineer. Without CodePath and its Virtual Career Fair, I would not have known about these positions or had the opportunity to establish relationships with these companies. I owe CodePath a tremendous amount of gratitude for the position I am in today!"
