The Bootcamp is an international project started in 2019 at the University of Cambridge: it is a full-immersion experience learning by doing together

We wanted to create an intensive programme of lectures, labs and project work to acquire technical skills and soft skills in an international and stimulating environment for a memorable learning experience. In addition to effectively widening the international course offering of our institution, the Bootcamp enhances collaborations and bridges the gap between university and industry with a full programme of practical activities that allow learning by doing. 

It is designed in collaboration between academics and professionals to deliver a highly experiential course entirely built with a problem-based-learning approach: hard skills are taught in order to solve specific case-studies and the programme is integrated with transferable skills training to support teamwork and to achieve goals together. 

Each edition has a special disciplinary focus within Industry 4.0: data science (2019 Edition), artificial intelligence (2020 Edition) and sustainability (2021 Edition). We look forward to adding more cutting-edge topics to our Bootcamp!
