Overview

The Mobile Development curriculum addresses the need for professional software developers who can create innovative mobile applications for today’s cell phones, tablet computers, and other portable devices. As a student in the program, you will be presented with a thorough, evolving curriculum that provides a complete study of the processes used in professional application production. You will be taught how to locate potential industry needs, research your user base, design the visual aesthetics and interactivity of your application, and use your research to create a comprehensive software plan. Technical courses cover the actual production of that concept, and you will learn standard programming languages for the Android and Apple mobile operating systems. You will expand on that architecture by learning how to implement audio and visual assets and balance the usability of your interface—whether it’s for a business application or a game—to create the perfect user experience. You will also benefit from foundational courses that cover topics in statistics and leadership. The combination of this material will help you build a foundation as a well-rounded software developer capable of working on a variety of mobile content.
