Industry Advisory Council Members

“We have partnered with Code Institute in order to attract graduates into our company, most of whom have good commercial understanding. We find they partner really well with businesses so they get a keen understanding of what the core technologies being used in industry are. They’re learning things that are in play commercially and get used to producing high-end software… the syllabus and the coursework is very aligned with commercial interest.”
