Software Development

While hardware advances in circuits and microprocessors make today’s computers possible, it’s software that makes them useful to the user. The design and development of computer software that meets organizational needs helps businesses, government departments, and more function efficiently.

 
Our IT schools offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs related to software programming and development that aim to produce graduates with strong theoretical knowledge and skills.
 
Growing Need Should Fuel Growing Opportunity
 
Opportunities within the software development field are expected to grow over the next ten years. For example, the Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates that computer software application engineering will add 175,100 job openings through 2018, a 34% increase over current levels.*
 
Software Programming and Engineering Degrees: What You Can Learn
 
At all levels, our IT schools teach students fundamentals of designing, developing, and debugging software programs, along with project management and other professional competencies. Topics covered may include:
 
  • User interfaces
  • Software testing methods
  • Object-oriented programming
  • Java application programming
  • Software requirements engineering
The depth and complexity of course topics will depend on the level of the degree. Associate degree programs are an entry-level support qualification, bachelor degrees an entry-level team qualification, and master’s degrees are for experienced professionals who hold a bachelor’s degree.
