In 2019, 81% of Americans owned smartphones. With the number of people who rely primarily on mobile internet access trending upwards and 5G growing steadily on the horizon, the demand for mobile web development skills has yet to reach its peak.
That is why the Mobile App Development PC certificate program aims to efficiently prepare students to begin careers as native application developers for Android and iOS operating systems. But you don't have to be a Computer Science major or an experienced programmer to enroll; this course sequence includes classes in programming fundamentals as prerequisites to those which teach languages specific to the Android and iOS platforms.
This program teaches students how to design and create a mobile application from beginning to end. Learning how to use application programming interfaces (APIs), you will create apps that interact with mobile device hardware and sensors. Skills like interface design, form creation and data capturing from user interfaces will teach you to master the coding and creative thinking that are essential in generating high quality application content. In courses near the end of this sequence students create their own applications for phones and tablets using these concepts.
