FAQ

Do I have to know how to code in order to attend Kenzie?

Absolutely not! We’re looking for self-starters who are curious about technology and like working with diverse groups of people. Our students are driven problem-solvers who can handle when things get tough and who enjoy being part of a collaborative tech community. Kenzie is open to all applicants with the right attitude and enthusiasm.

Are classes online?

Yes. All classes can be attended online, from the comfort of your home. 

Can I do this part-time?

Yes, but only with our UX Design program. Kenzie Academy’s Software Engineering program is rigorous, so students are required to attend full time. Learning how to code is like learning a new language — full commitment and immersion are essential. This is why Kenzie Academy is different from a coding bootcamp: We want you to develop your skills along with your portfolio and network, which takes a lot of effort. Students with extensive life and work commitments outside of class would not be a fit for our full-time program.

What do I receive once I complete the programs?

Software Engineering students will receive a joint Kenzie and Butler University certificate in Front-End Web Development after completing the first 6 months of the program. They’ll receive a joint Kenzie and Butler University certificate in Full-Stack Web Development after completing the second half of the program, which focuses on Back-End Web Development. 

UX Designers will receive a Kenzie Academy certificate upon completion of the part-time, 6-month program that will confirm their mastery of the material. 

What is a full-stack engineer or web developer?

A Full-Stack Software Engineer/Web Developer works on both the front end and back end of an app or website. Full-Stack Web Developers will be comfortable with both front-end technologies such as HTML, CSS, and Javascript, which control the appearance of pages in the web browser, as well as at least one server-side language such as Python. They’ll also effectively use relational databases.

Where our students work

Become a UX Designer

You need the skills to grow your career, and the UX Design program is built to get you to the next level. Learn UX Design without leaving your day job in our part-time program. UX Designers create thoughtful, user-driven interfaces that solve real-world problems while also being enjoyable and easy to use. You'll not only develop the skills needed to bring your ideas to life, you'll have a community and network supporting you along the way.

What is UX Design?

A UX Designer’s job is to design website interfaces and apps to enhance the user experience. Nearly everything we interact with has a user experience, so the field is nuanced and incorporates elements of tech, business, psychology, design, and market research. Cool, right? Due to this, UX Designers can come from various professional backgrounds.
