Cohort 2 aims to expand program

Kuwait – 28 August 2022 – CODED Academy has launched the second edition of UniCODE, which is supported by its strategic partnership with Agility, a leader in supply chain services, infrastructure, and innovation.

UniCode is a coding program that provides digital coding basics to undergraduate students, and it has been organized with the support of the Computer Engineering Society (CPES) at Kuwait University. The second cohort follows on the successful first edition of “UniCODE” technology training program for university students, which trained 86 students.

The second cohort will focus on five distinct knowledge areas, including iOS development, Android, website programming and design, game development and Flutter. Using the latest technologies and programming languages, students will benefit from the intensive course in a short period of time.

Ahmad Marafi, CEO, CODED, said: “During the first edition of the training program, students produced a lot of great ideas that were able to be turned into functioning applications. We’re looking forward to seeing the ideas the second cohort comes up with. We’re proud to have Agility as a Strategic Partner, and would like to thank the Agility team for contributing their time and effort to be part our UniCode program.”

Henadi Al Saleh, Agility Chairperson, said: “Agility has long supported educational initiatives in the communities where we operate, especially initiatives that support the development of technical and digital capabilities, which are key drivers of future demand for our workforce. CODED provides students in Kuwait with practical coding skills that set the foundation for the future. I look forward to seeing the progression and growth in the coming UniCode cohorts.”

Hashim Behbehani – COO said: “I want to extend my thanks to all the participating students who joined us in our first edition of UniCode – it was inspiring to see the ideas develop into functioning applications. UniCODE was created specifically for undergraduate students from various backgrounds and academic majors, with a goal of helping students to enhance their understanding of coding and software development, and to draw a clear line between academia and “real” applications.”

Registration for the second cohort of UniCODE is now open. Female and male students are welcome to participate and can apply for the UniCODE program by following CODED’s social media accounts at @Joincoded.
