<itc> in the Negev
Israel Tech Challenge is heading south and opening a new campus to teach Full-Stack Development and Data Science in Beer Sheva, the capital city of the Negev.
Everyone knows Tel Aviv as the ‘Silicon Wadi’ for the high concentration of tech companies. However, throughout Israel there are several startup and tech hubs. For the past 3 years, you can see the continuing growth of the tech scene in Be’er Sheva, called the Capital City of the Negev, luring such companies as CyberArk, Dell EMC, and Wix.com. This upward trend led Israel Tech Challenge High-Tech Academy to offer its coding and data science programs there. This upcoming March 15, 2021, graduates from all over the country, but especially the Negev, can start learning relevant skills in demand in the global high-tech world and practice them locally in Be’er Sheva.
In Israel, there is still a shortage of over 20,000 tech talents. Even during this Pandemic the salaries for data scientists and programmers in Israel remain high. Thanks to Ben-Gurion University and Sami Shamoon college of engineering and local initiatives, there is no shortage of tech innovative ideas and STEM-minded people in the Negev.
Data Scientists and Full-Stack Developers of the South
Graduates of Data Science Fellows Program are known for being of a high caliber and highly-skilled data scientists and boasts of 95% job placement after graduation. With the new campus in Be’er Sheva, launching a high-tech career as a Full-Stack Developer, or upgrading from a current field in high-tech to the prestigious Data Science – Machine Learning specialists is now much more accessible.
According to the CEO of Israel Tech Challenge, Yehoyada Mande’el:
”As a nonprofit, we focus on realizing the vision of granting access to the Israeli high-tech and its high paying jobs to people of all backgrounds, whether they are in Tel Aviv or not. If they can study in English, pass our screening process and are ready to work hard, we’ll open the door to Full-Stack Development and Data Science in Beer Sheva and the Negev. Whether it’s the soft skill training, the industry involvement in our programs, or our network of over 250 tech companies and startups which offer 1-2 months projects to our students, our graduates finish their programs work ready, with meaningful work experience and industry exposure.“
Israel Tech Challenge’s programs, both the Full-Stack Development and Data Science in Beer Sheva will be taught 5-6 months in English, bringing the international mentality and the ‘language of the tech’, needed for a lasting and lucrative career in High-tech. ITC in the Negev courses will be taught in the Gav Yam innovation hub in Be’er Sheva.
