The Structural Elements
You’ll start Villa’s Computer Software Development program by taking introductory classes that will help you build the strong framework needed for success. As you grow as a developer, you’ll transition into more advanced classes like web design and programming, database systems, and distributed computing. After eight semesters, you’ll walk away from Villa as an experienced programmer with a diverse skill set that’s in high demand.
All good developers know that user experience reigns supreme. This is the case at Villa, too. You will be at the center of your student experience here. Our 9:1 student-to-faculty ratio ensures you’ll have access to the terminals, labs and other resources you need to create award-winning algorithms. Your classes will be overloaded with people who speak your language – whether that’s Java, C++ or Python. The experienced program faculty will help optimize your personal development, ensuring you can compute, automate, develop and deploy like a true professional.
Hands on Development Process
In order to successfully create applications, you’ll need to have a strong understanding of every stage of the software development process. You can learn about microprogramming, querying and networking administration by reading and watching, but you’ll master all this and more by doing them for yourself. Beginning with your very first class, you’ll work on projects that prepare you to graduate ready to begin a lucrative career.
See for yourself.
Developers belong at Villa. As a computer software development major, the world is literally at your fingertips—both figuratively and literally. Your work will concentrate on designing, developing, and deploying software and applications that populate our phones and computers. In Villa’s state-of-the-art computer lab, you’ll learn in-demand skills in a curriculum that covers far more languages than typical.
