"I gained insight into the structure of a big tech company; with an experience I could never learn from class. The inspiration was so impactful that I decided to switch my undergrad major from Biomedical Engineering to Computer Engineering."

Fairleigh Dickinson University, Microsoft SWE Intern ‘20
"New Techs helped me find my own passion for technology. After the internship I was surprised at how much I was enjoying programming. I don't think I would enjoy doing this so much if it weren't for New Techs."
Lake Washington Institute of Technology
"Before New Techs there was no one career path I was interested in. I had in the past dabbled in Computer Science but was talked out of doing it. It wasn't until NTs that I was reminded of my love and excitement for Computer Science/SWE."
