Meedaxa Ahmed

Meedaxa Ahmed has landed a top job as an integration engineer at Birmingham-based digital innovation company, Synaptek, after graduating from an intensive University of Birmingham Boot Camp (@unibirmingham).

The University of Birmingham launched its popular Boot Camps last year and has since welcomed 135 students to its 24-week intensive Coding and Data Analytics courses.

With the rising demand for web development and digital skills across all industries, the University of Birmingham Boot Camps are designed to prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need to tap into today’s technological economy and help bridge the nation’s skills gap. 

Ahmed noted:

“It’s been great putting what I learnt on the course into practice at my new job as an integration engineer.  The programme was intense but it’s absolutely the best decision I’ve made, honestly, it’s changed my life around.”

Once they complete Boot Camp, learners receive continued 1:1 career coaching and a quarterly networking event with local professionals. The University of Birmingham is ranked amongst the world’s top 100 institutions and has been challenging and developing students for more than a century.
