We recognize that not all technical skills can be taught in just 8 weeks. So we also teach you how to optimally learn new skills.
Practise active learning where you are the owner of the learning process.
Learn collaboratively with others in a cohort-based training environment.
Our training mimics the real life of a software engineer. We run weekly sprints, track progress through daily stand-ups, and conclude with demos and retrospective.
We structure our training around a central project that you build on over 8 weeks.
We teach collaboration through teamwork and code reviews. You will receive regular feedback from instructors on communication skills with respect to daily stand-ups, weekly project presentations, email and documentation writing.
“I hold a PhD in IT with
specialization in network-based anomaly
detection. Previously, I have served as a research scholar at
Michigan State University and University of
North Carolina at Charlotte and as
an Assistant Professor at NUST.
For years now, teaching has been my passion. As a founding member of SkipQ, I have found the best of both worlds - Industry and Academia at the same place. We started SkipQ to scalably impact the lives of early career engineers. And it’s heartwarming to see that, in a short span of time, we have made possible many great success stories! SkipQ has a wonderful team of instructors and coaches and I love every second of working with them.”
“I am a Founding Member of SkipQ and a Tenured Associate Professor at National University of Sciences and Technology.
In addition, I have over 10 years of academic and industrial experience in the area of Computer Vision and Machine Learning.
I did my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, USA.
I am a Senior Member of IEEE, USA and Pakistan Engineering Council.
At SkipQ we provide a unique training program that bridges the gap between academia and industry. The best part for me at SkipQ is seeing the trainees' faces light up when they get their ideal job at the end of their training. It is incredible to see how far trainees have progressed in both technical knowledge and interpersonal skills in just six weeks.”
“With a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from NUST, a master's degree in EE from Rutgers University, US, and four years of teaching experience, I am a trained academician. However, I am also interested in continuous professional development and my drive to grow and improve myself brought me to SkipQ. I like to work in an environment where multi-faceted problems are being solved and there is great teamwork. The entire SkipQ team, with their ideas, commitment, and hard work to translate those ideas into reality, has been a great source of inspiration for me.”
Our instructors are supported by a team of 4 coaches who are all Senior Engineers in the world’s best software companies - Google, Amazon (AWS), and Salesforce.
Coaches help the instructors structure the course, design assignments and projects, and conduct code reviews. Coaches and instructors work together to ensure graduates are industry-ready.
“I feel very proud to be part of the first batch of SkipQ and get the opportunity to work with people from the best software companies of the world. As much as my journey was challenging to work in a simulated industrial environment, it was an amazing learning experience towards DevOps and aws services. SkipQ helped me to get a clear vision of my career along with scaling-up my skills to an industrial level and led my way to Roomy as a software Engineer.”
