NuPaths offers a springboard for career success through short-term educational pathways.  We provide a series of courses to develop information technology (IT) skills based on industry certifications and aligned with in-demand IT job roles.

NuPaths is cofounded by Harrisburg University of Science & Technology. Harrisburg University offers innovative academic and research programs in science and technology that respond to local and global needs. The institution fosters a diverse community of learners, provides access and support to students who want to pursue a career in science and technology, and supports business creation and economic development.

Harrisburg University supports NuPaths’ technology-focused pathways by providing access to the university’s classrooms, faculty and education leadership experience.

NuPaths seeks to solve the following information technology (IT) education challenges:

  • College can take too long to complete for the pace of IT change in today’s workplace and is often too expensive for many.
  • Career training is often not an engaging, high quality educational experience.
  • A single IT certification or a random collection of IT certifications does not provide a career path.
  • Certification training providers’ programs are not designed based on learning best practices.
  • Experience is required to get an IT job without a degree.
