About McLaren College

Mclaren College is an online school designed to identify and train people from lower economic countries for software engineering careers who otherwise may not have such an opportunity. We aim at helping students, from varying educational and professional backgrounds, to achieve careers that have a high market demand, which will significantly boost their lifetime income.

We're focused on helping disadvantaged people improve their living standard through online education. We measure our success by the number of people we help pull out of poverty.

Our courses are designed to be rigorous with a high difficulty level, since we want our graduates to be among the top programmers in the industry. Our focus is not only teaching our main program students but also helping the applicants who didn’t make it through the qualifying rounds via our beginner and intermediate level programs.
