Pioneering industry-oriented education
Adapted to company needs and shaped by industry experts
We develop technology skills for hiring needs
Learn coding with Byte Academy. We pioneered industry-focused programs beginning with the launch of our FinTech course, the first of its type in the world. Our educational programs bridge the gap between “business” and technology.
We work with companies to develop and adapt our curriculum to teach skill-sets that match real hiring needs. We also utilize the expertise of leading business executives, industry professionals, and those passionate about education and software development to craft each course.
Our courses are open to individuals spanning from beginner to more advanced programming backgrounds. Some may have already had industry
expertise or work experience while others are brand new to the domain that they want to study at Byte.
Our program consists of three phases of equal length. For more advanced programmers, there is the option to “jump” Phase 1 and/or take phases a la carte. Most students complete our three phase course. Students must pass an assessment in order to advance from one level to the next.
Since individuals learn at different paces, the option to repeat a phase is included in tuition
We were the first to offer FinTech coding education.
Our FinTech classes are offered in New York, Singapore, and India
FinTech is a rapidly growing industry:
- 2015 global FinTech investment grew by 75% y-o-y to $22.2 billion
- In the first-quarter 2016 global Fintech investment grew 67% year-over-year to $5.3 billion
- Average salary for a Fintech software engineer? $100,000+(Bank Innovation Analysis)
Areas of FinTech Include: Peer to Peer Lending, Cryptocurrency, Mobile Payments, Analytics, Developer APIs, Cybersecurity, Cloud Security
The divide between banking and engineering roles has dwindled, putting individuals who could not keep up with technology out of work. In response to this transition of talent, we train individuals how to program for financial domain. Students graduate with the ability the develop financial applications.

Python, the core coding language of our curriculum, is the highest paid coding language for recent bootcamp graduates
Our software development classes are offered in New York, Singapore and India
We teach languages, frameworks and computer science fundamentals that you need to land a career in web development. We emphasize the Python coding language because:
- Python is the highest paid language for recent bootcamp grads starting salaries average $90,000
- Python is based on simplicity with high analytical capability
- There is nearly twice the demand for programmers proficient in Python versus other language on leading job search sites
- Python is the #1 language taught at American colleges
Did you know that Guido van Rossum, the founder of the Python named the programming language after Monty Python?
Data Scientists are the highest paid engineers
Our Data Science classes are offered in New York and Singapore
Data Science, sometimes known as “big data,” is a rapidly growing highly lucrative field. Companies in all industries have immense amounts of data but need specialists to analyze the data in order to make proper business decisions. A data scientist cleans, organizes and analyzes data using tools such as distributed computing, predictive modeling, machine learning, statistics, math and visualization. The Python coding language, core to our curriculum, is used heavily in the data sciences due to its analytical capability. A data science skill set is highly in demand:
- As the highest paid engineers salaries average $113,000 average salary
- By 2018 there will be a demand for 490,000 data science jobs. This demand is expected to exceed supply by more than 50%
- By 2020, it is estimated that there will be 240 exabytes daily by 2020
A data science background is useful for other roles including: data analyst, data engineer, data architect, data and analytics manager, and statistician.
Harvard Business Review Named Data Scientists "The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century"
Code on the blockchain
Blockchain classes are currently held on our New York City campus
Although, originally known as the technology behind Bitcoin, a type of cryptocurrency, blockchain has wide ranging applications outside finance including decentralized voting, compiling data and even agricultural supply chain management. The blockchain is a distributed database that maintains a continuously-growing list of records called blocks secured from tampering and revision. Each block contains a time stamp from a recent block.
Large financial institutions have realized blockchain’s power and are creating their own digital currencies. For instance – Citibank’s citicoin. The revolutionary nature of blockchain has made knowledge and coding skills in the technology highly in demand. Upon graduation students are able to code on or create a blockchain
