In a significant move to advance digital education in Azerbaijan, the Innovation and Digital Development Agency, under the sponsorship of “PAŞA Holding” Companies Group, has announced a partnership with the globally renowned educational network, “Holberton School.”

Holberton School, known for its excellence in computer science and software engineering education, is set to launch a new educational program in Azerbaijan. Operating from Silicon Valley, Holberton School is renowned for its high-quality technological programs and innovative, hands-on teaching methodologies in the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

This partnership is a game-changer for individuals in Azerbaijan aspiring to gain expertise in ICT. The program is open to anyone aged 18 and above, aiming to provide a unique and effective learning experience. Holberton School’s distinctive approach to education emphasizes peer-to-peer learning, offering students the opportunity to collaborate and engage in teamwork. 

The application process will be conducted online through the official website, where prospective students will be given a three-step assignment. In the final stage, candidates will undergo interviews with Holberton representatives. Unlike traditional educational programs, this selection process places more emphasis on evaluating candidates’ logical and analytical thinking abilities rather than their existing computer science or programming skills. Proficiency in the English language is a requirement, as the entire selection process will be conducted in English.

A total of 60 successful candidates will be granted the opportunity to participate in the program, receiving full scholarships for their education. Throughout the program, classes will be conducted in a full-time format, from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM daily.

In the initial nine months, students will acquire fundamental skills in computer science. Afterward, they can choose to work as junior software engineers or specialize in one of six fields offered by Holberton School, including Machine Learning, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Low-level Programming and Algorithms, Full Stack, Front-end, and Back-end Programming.

The application deadline for this unique opportunity is September 28, 2023. Classes are set to commence in October 2023.

This partnership between Innovation and Digital Development Agency and Holberton School signifies a significant step toward nurturing the next generation of digital leaders in Azerbaijan, ensuring they receive world-class education and resources to excel in the ever-evolving field of ICT.
