The Certificate of Advanced Studies in Introduction to Software Development and Data Processing (CAS-IDD) allows you to learn about software development and its tools, as well as data processing and visualization.
The Certificate of Advanced Studies in Introduction to Software Development and Data Processing (CAS-IDD) teaches you Python and Java, object-oriented programming, fundamental data structures and algorithms, human-computer interface design and implementation, software deployment in the cloud, and data processing and visualization, while also educates you about security, maintainability, and the legal aspects of software.
This CAS is part of the Master of Advanced Studies in Rapid Application Development (MAS-RAD).
The CAS-IDD is composed of several modules that can be taken independently.
|Deployment of software solutions||40||Daniel Cordey (external)|
|Legal aspects of the software||14||Dimitri Morarcaliev (external), Christophe Saam (external)|
|Object-oriented development and design with Python||52||Matthieu Amiguet (external)|
|Data processing and visualization with Python||28||Benoit Le Callenec (HE-Arc)|
|Design and implementation of human-machine interfaces||26||Aïcha Rizzotti (HE-Arc)|
You will be able to:
- describe the architecture and operation of a computer system
- apply the legal aspects of the software
- develop and deploy software solutions in a secure and efficient manner
- design and build object-oriented applications in Python
- apply data processing and visualization algorithms
- design and implement human-machine interfaces (graphical interfaces in Java)
This CAS is mainly intended for engineers without an IT degree.
You must have a Bachelor’s degree or an engineering diploma (ETS, HES, EPF) in microengineering, mechanics, electronics, civil engineering or any other field or an equivalent university degree.
Otherwise, admission decisions could be based on the quality of your application file, within the limits of the quota authorized by the HES-SO.
