FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Michelle Tooker, Public Relations
(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA - August 8, 2012)—With the explosive growth of mobile devices changing the way people access and use the Internet, there’s been a boom in the field of mobile application development. In response, Delaware County Community College is offering both an associate degree and certificate program in Mobile Computing. The College is one of the first Philadelphia-area schools to do so and courses are filling quickly. Don’t miss out on the chance to join this high-growth field and develop apps for the iPhone, iPad, Android and other handheld devices.
Named one of 10 hot areas by CIO magazine, mobile application development is a specialized field where concepts of web development, interface design and computer programming merge. Through the College’s program, you’ll learn how to design websites for display on a variety of mobile devices, how to create applications for smart-devices using iOS and Android OS frameworks and relevant programming languages, and learn the ins-and-outs of submitting apps for distribution.
Choose to earn an Associate in Applied Science with an option in Mobile Computing or pursue a certificate of proficiency in Mobile Computing. The certificate program is 37 credits and course work can be applied to the associate degree program. The associate program is 61-66 credits and those who earn a degree can transfer to a four-year school.
Both programs will prepare you for a variety of careers, including serving as a mobile app developer, software developer, programmer or mobile game developer. IT professionals who have the expanded skills in mobile application development and integration will have a distinct advantage over those who don’t.
Fall registration ends August 22. To register, visit www.dccc.edu or call 1-877-912-DCCC (3222).
