Do I need a computer science degree to get a job in software?

No you do not! Apple, Tesla, Google and tons of other big tech startups in the West have dropped the requirement for a university degree.

We believe this is the right direction and it will only grow from here. Most of Sigma School's community members do not have CS degrees, but are working professionally as developers. You can check out their stories here. Sigma School has even have community members from unrelated fields like operational safety, law, accounting. Even the founders themselves were from a Finance background. We exist because universities are unable to produce enough engineers. There's such a high demand for techies now. Companies will hire anyone who's able to add value to their organisation, with or without a degree.

The world is lacking coders today, and companies don’t have a choice. Learn to code, add value, build great products. You DO NOT need a computer science degree to get a job in tech.
