Wayne County Community College partners with Infosys for software boot camp

There are thousands of IT and software job openings in Michigan, and not enough people to fill them. Wayne County Community College District and India-based Infosys are working to change that.

The pair are launching a software engineering bootcamp and they expect the graduates of it will help fill the numerous tech jobs being created in downtown Detroit's emerging on-shoring industry.

"There are 3,000 job openings (for software and IT professionals) in Southeast Michigan that haven't been filled," says George Swan, vice chancellor of external affairs for Wayne County Community College District. "That speaks to the need in our area."

The 18-week Software Engineering Boot Camp is designed to take people interested in a career in IT or software and turn them into knowledgeable professionals within 18 weeks.
