It's no secret that software engineering is one of the fastest growing fields in tech today. Over the past decade, the need for web-connected software has exploded in both popularity and usefulness as billions of devices have connected to the web. From the banking industry to agriculture, the world needs skilled software developers who can tackle business problems with the tools that power the modern web. At Emerging Digital Academy, that's exactly what we prepare our students to do.
North Dakota Needs Software Developers. With one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, is estimated that there are currently over 800 unfilled software developer positions in the state with another 2000 jobs projected to be created in the next decade. There simply are not enough skilled software developers to fill these positions today.
Working directly with North Dakota employers and community partners, Emerging Digital Academy has created a student-focused classroom experience that is helping upgrade the workforce and address the growing demand for software development talent in our region.

We work directly with North Dakota employers to ensure our curriculum is cutting-edge, industry relevant, and updated quarterly. Our 20 week program features technical presentations from industry professionals, public presentations, mock interviews, resume help, and an on-site career day with local employers who are hiring.
Small classes, one-on-one support with your experienced instructors, collaborative group learning, and an immersive in-classroom environment are just part of what sets us apart. No coding experience? No problem. The initial foundations session teaches everything you need to know to prepare for the classroom.
We teach students how to build web apps from the ground up. But learning to code is just the beginning. Students learn about databases, source control, backend servers, frontend frameworks, task prioritization, and public speaking. Major portfolio pieces include a solo project and a real world team built client project.

Emerging Digital Academy was created to address the growing demand for skilled software developers in North Dakota. Our flagship program is Full Stack Engineering, a 20 week technical training program that teaches students cutting-edge programming skills and emulates the on-the-job training environment that an entry level developer would receive during the first few months after joining a technical team at a real company. Our long term goal is to incorporate additional technical programs to help upscale the North Dakota workforce.Our mission is to serve three primary areas: our student, our community, and our state.
