Where to Begin?
Familiarize yourself with Hack Reactor’s Admissions process and timeline.
Prepare and Show Us You’re
an Engineer in the Making
The first step in our admissions process is to start learning to code and to show us you can tackle problems like a promising engineer. We recommend our highly motivating and effective Structured Study Program, perfect for students who want the structure and support to stay on track. A free self-paced study program is also available as an alternative.
Precourse takes place after you pass the technical interview and decide to join the immersive. Through another 80 hours of study, you'll push your skill set, your comfort zone, and your autonomy. Students preparing using Basic Prep complete precourse at their own pace. For students in our Structured Study Program, precourse is covered within live prep. Precourse allows students to hit the ground running on day one of the immersive and to make the most out of their time at Hack Reactor.
Start the Immersive
Software Engineering Program
By day one of the immersive, students have already completed 100-200 hours of study in our admissions and onboarding process alone. They’ve proven they’re smart, driven, compassionate and ready to succeed.
From there, students embark on an immersive that closely models the engineering industry. For another six hundred hours, you’ll work with talented peers to tackle challenging problems our curriculum engineers & former hiring managers have pulled from real industry projects.
Students become exceptional engineers, receive amazing job search support, join an incredible global alumni network of over 3,000 engineers and go on to make an impact in their careers and their community.
