Introduction to Software Development

In this course, students are introduced to software development. Fundamental programming concepts and software development techniques are introduced and implemented within an easy-to-learn development environment.

Database Design

This course introduces relational and object-oriented database concepts and SQL. Students design, implement and populate databases, and write simple queries using an industry-standard database such as MySQL, MSSQL Server or Oracle.

Multimedia Programming I

This course gives students an overview of using the TAO framework and the OpenGL library in games programming. The language used is C#. Many of the concepts implemented in this class apply across many programming languages and libraries.

Database Implementation

Students design and implement database solutions to meet end-users’ needs. Using an industry-standard database such as MySQL, MSSQL Server or Oracle, students explore the syntax of SQL, with an emphasis on the development of queries and reporting. Additional topics include normalization and de-normalization of data, retaining history and managing transactions.

Software Engineering for Mobile Devices

This course introduces students to the process of developing software-based solutions to complex problems using mobile devices. Students learn about the limitations imposed by these devices’ processing power and learn to operate within those constraints. Software engineering lifecycle processes are covered and object-oriented design and implementations concepts are discussed. Equally important, this course is a practice win software engineering as students team up to work on problem formulations, requirements engineering, architecting, design, programing, integration and delivery/deployment of applications.

Due to the limited number of completers within the reporting period, employer names are being withheld to preserve the confidentiality of our students.
