Fullstack Academy, a national tech education provider based in New York, has announced a new partnership with Nexus at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor to provide tech training bootcamps specializing in data analytics, DevOps, artificial intelligence (AI), fintech with blockchain, and business analytics to aspiring tech talent in Michigan.

Established in 2019, Nexus provides professional education certificates; support for the design and delivery of online credit courses and degrees; and custom programs that are taught by faculty and lecturers from throughout the U-M College of Engineering and beyond.

Nexus also offers market assessment, instructional design, project management, and production services, along with supporting online teaching and experimenting with innovative instructional strategies and technologies that enhance the classroom learning environment.

“As a nationally recognized academic institution located in a growing tech hub, Nexus at Michigan Engineering offers lifelong learners the opportunity to advance their careers through flexible and highly accessible training programs, a mission that fully aligns with ours,” says Jerrad Tausz, CEO of Fullstack Academy.

“We are honored to continue their tradition of teaching high-quality academics and preparing learners for some of the most in-demand jobs in the region, with notable companies such as Google, ServiceNow, Dynatrace, Magna International, and Blue Yonder looking to grow their tech teams.”

The live online part- and full-time tech bootcamps will equip students with the skills needed to fill the more than 8,700 available tech jobs across Michigan according to the Michigan Department of Technology, Management, and Budget (DTMB).

Michigan is a growing tech hub with the second-highest concentration of engineers in the country, particularly in Ann Arbor and Detroit. Additionally, Michigan is ranked one of the most innovative states in the country based on key factors such as R&D spending per capita, share of STEM professionals, and tech company density, according to a report from WalletHub.

The Michigan DTMB projects that the state’s DevOps job market will grow 25.8 percent in the next 3-5 years, and its data analyst job market will grow 29.4 percent — faster than in the U.S. overall, per the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The University of Michigan is the latest academic institution to join Fullstack Academy’s growing university partnership program that aims to make accelerated live, online tech skills training available across the country. Fullstack partners with 20 other leading institutions including Caltech CTME, California Polytechnic State University, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest University.

“We are excited to be working with Fullstack Academy to add their top-notch bootcamps to our roster of more than 50 professional education certificate programs,” says Chris LaBelle, executive director of Nexus at Michigan Engineering. “Fullstack Academy will also join our legacy of over 50 years of industry collaboration, helping us broaden our scope of tech training as the industry grows exponentially.”

The U-M Tech Bootcamps do not require university enrollment or prior technical experience. Those interested in learning more about the bootcamps can sign up to receive more information by clicking here.
