CAS in Introduction to Software Development and Data Processing

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.

Program

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).

Content

The CAS-IDD is composed of several modules that can be taken independently.
