Supporting Birmingham Tech Week 2021

The University of Birmingham is delighted to support Birmingham Tech Week, a festival of digital, technology and innovation across Birmingham and the West Midlands now in its third year. 

Birmingham Tech is a not-for-profit community initiative that aims to raise the profile of the Birmingham and West Midlands tech scene by helping tech and digital businesses to scale successfully with valuable knowledge, insight and support. With our focus on regional growth and championing innovation, the University of Birmingham is an ideal partner for this annual event.

This year we are hosting a Digital Skills Day at our new home in Birmingham city centre, The Exchange

The day will explore why digital skills are vital to ensuring our region goes from strength to strength. Join us to hear from PWC, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, BT, Accenture and more with workshops at 10:00 - 11:00 and again at 11:00 - Noon.

The day also includes a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the University of Birmingham Coding and Data Analytics Bootcamps. Hear directly from former students on the skills they learnt and the impact it has had on their career and from employers of Bootcamp graduates. You will even experience a sample taught by one of our Bootcamp instructors at the end of the session!

The Bootcamp sessions are suitable for employers who would like to learn more about Bootcamps for their colleagues and potential students who want to experience a coding bootcamp.
