The course is designed to build intermediate programming skills using the Python programming language. It emphasises problem solving through the explicit development of algorithms to solve challenging computational problemsRegister now
The course takes you through the major tools that you need to develop effective programs to solve computational problems. It assumes a basic knowledge of programming but begins with a refresher of Python. After equipping the learner with the tools they need for complex problems solving, the learner is presented with challenging problems to solve using the skills they have acquired.
Programming is made up of two parts. The first is the development of an algorithm which solves a given computational problem. The second is the coding of this algorithm into a computer program to be executed by the machine. We emphasise this difference as we build a solid grounding for programmers that complete this course.

Our courses are designed to help you learn programming skills through practice. Here are the practical projects you'll complete with the help of a mentor as part of this course:
We get an introduction into this high level and easily understandable language. We learn how to control our program through the variety of built in structures, as well as how to store data through the life of our program and get input from our user - and how to return information to our users as well.
The Full Monty
We take the knowledge from the previous stages in the course and apply it to more advanced concepts that Python's power allows us to implement relatively easily. We'll be looking at complex concepts such as Bioinformatics, Language Processing, Location Plotting, and Machine Learning. All of these are highly valuable concepts in the the world of modern consumer computing.
Throughout the years, we’ve helped many people acquire new coding expertise and sharpen their skills as they prepared to embark on new careers. We can tell you a lot about our bootcamp, personalised support, instant feedback and industry-aligned course content. But we believe our past students say it best.
“I found a new job as a software developer within 2 weeks of completing HyperionDev's Web Development course. Despite my prior university studies in programming, I struggled to land a job as a developer and worked as a mechanic until being exposed to real practical coding skills that I now use day-to-day."
From Motor Mechanic to Software Developer at Pepcor IT
"HyperionDev gave me the confidence and ability to code and find the tech job I've always wanted. 4 months after I completed my Web Development Bootcamp, I landed a role in my dream career as a web developer."
From Office Manager to Web Developer Cartmell Communications
"The support my mentor gave me during HyperionDev's Software Engineering courses helped me go from unemployed to a tech role with IBM that has changed my life. This course gave me the stepping stone needed to follow my passion and start my career in tech."
From Business Management Graduate to Strategic Consultant at IBM
"I found a new job as a software developer 2 months after graduating from my HyperionDev course. The 3 months I spent studying with HyperionDev took me from being an absolute beginner in coding to someone who actually felt like they could be a software developer, because I actually attained the skills to switch to a career in tech."
From Tour Operator to Software Developer at MIP Holding
“HyperionDev, with their excellent guidance and structure, resulted in my learning, in a few months, what would have taken more than a year on my own. Just 1 month after completing my course, I found myself employed and working as a Software Engineer.”
From Unemployed Graduate to Software Engineer at Andile Solutions
“As a Site Engineer, I felt my skills were not utilized to their fullest. Now, as a full-time mobile developer, I’m very happy about the exciting opportunities ahead and the new stimulating environment.”
From Site Engineer to Mobile Developer at The Reach Trust
“After 2 years of struggling to get into the development industry, HyperionDev’s Mobile Development course helped me land a job that has me creating mobile apps used in the real world.”
From Customer Support Associate to Mobile Developer at Rapid Deploy
Computer science isn’t only for those that want to be programmers. This course teaches you how to think logically, through powerful methods like decomposition and abstraction. It develops problem solving skills that you can apply outside of the context of technology. You also learn the valuable skill of programming, which is becoming more important in the technological economy we’re in.
As much as non-technical people can benefit from this course, this doesn’t diminish its value to aspiring computer scientists. You will be challenged, and learn the fundamentals on which your future studies will be grounded in. A vital course to take.
