Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, Software Development and Engineering (Advanced)


SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT AND ENGINEERING ADVANCED CERTIFICATE

The need continues for software developers who are knowledgeable and well prepared to meet the challenges of modern software development. As software plays an increasingly important role in our everyday life, the need for developers with a good understanding of their field and the newest developments in the area is obvious. People unable to complete a full graduate program in software design and development may wish to elect the Advanced Certificate in Software Design and Development which would better serve their needs. The Computer Science Departments have designed a five-course sequence that teaches students the fundamentals of the software design and development process.

This certificate program is available only on the New York City campus.
