The Iron Yard has announced the opening of a new campus in Dallas. Starting in March, the Dallas campus will offer courses in Front-End Engineering and Back-End Engineering in an immersive, 12-week format designed to prepare students to enter the workforce as junior programmers after graduation. With the addition of the Dallas campus, The Iron Yard now operates four campuses in Texas with other locations in Austin, Houston and San Antonio.
“In the last 90 days alone, more than 900 jobs have been posted for junior-level programmers in the Dallas area,” said Eric Dodds, co-founder and CMO at The Iron Yard. “The huge need for skilled programmers, combined with the amazing relationships we’ve built with the tech community and hiring partners in Texas, made it an easy decision for us to open a Dallas campus.”
The Iron Yard’s full-time programs train people of all backgrounds with the skills they need to be successful as junior-level programmers. Full-time instructors and a robust career support program help students both master skills in the classroom and navigate the job search process. This support system is enhanced by The Iron Yard’s global network of alumni and employers who are deeply entrenched in tech communities worldwide.
“While our global network gives our students access to opportunities worldwide, we also localize all of our courses and programs,” said Caitlin Studley, The Iron Yard Dallas Campus Director. “In each city where we have a campus, we talk to local employers to make sure we’re offering courses and teaching the technical skills that graduates will need to know to get great jobs in that specific market. This ensures that our graduates’ skills are as relevant as possible when they graduate, and enhances their opportunity to be competitive in the tech industry,” she added.
The first Front-End Engineering and Back-End Engineering courses in Dallas are scheduled to begin on March 21 and enrollment is now open. Future programs offered through The Iron Yard’s Dallas campus may include Mobile Engineering, Data Science or Design.
