Graduate Certificate in Software Development

The purpose of the Graduate Certificate in Software Development is to provide students with a solid foundation in the tools and principles that underlie modern software development.   The emphasis is on object-oriented software design and development, the most widely used approach for building complex software systems today.    Beyond just learning to program, the certificate will prepare students to plan, manage, and assess software development projects and software quality.  The emphasis in applications will be on distributed systems (e.g., web, cloud, mobile), which represents the most rapidly growing sector of software development.
