DeMont has launched a program to help build students’ capacity in making mindful and intentional choices that will pave the way for individual success and positively foster employment opportunities. We aspire to pave a promising career pathway for all those who walk through the doors of our institution with the desire to learn and grow. But we wanted to create an exceptional learning experience not only for our students but also for aspiring learners in the community. In the world of ever-changing technology, it can be a little intimidating especially if you lack the experience or the knowledge.
Thus, we launched DeCODE, a program that will empower students to become fully engaged by providing transformative educational experiences for students. It would infuse creativity within students and provide them with hands-on exposure to various facets of Computer Science. Having knowledge in this field is considered valuable in all industries with new opportunities constantly emerging as technology continues to be driven forward by the latest innovation. DeCODE aims to introduce the foundation of computer science to students and highlight the pathways available for those who would like to pursue computer science in the future.
