SU LaunchLab in partnership with SU School for Data Science and Computational Thinking has launched a Techpreneurship Centre. The goal is to provide Stellenbosch University final year students and/or graduates with an opportunity to be part of a 6-week coding and entrepreneurship program and then be placed with a startup and/or industry partner in the form of a fixed-term internship to work on real-world problems and/or projects.

The Details:


Final year students or graduates in BSc/Bcom/BEng in Computer Science/Information Systems/Data Science/Engineering or similar (NQF 7) who understand the fundamentals of object-oriented programming. These candidates need to complete our online application form and pass our coding challenge.


You should hear from us within 2 weeks after submitting the coding challenge. If you do not, please email info@launchlab.co.za.
