Undergraduate Certificate in Mobile Applications & Web Development

Mobile devices such as smart phones are one of the fastest growing technology segments.  Soon there will be more mobile devices than laptops in the world.  There is tremendous need for web based application developments for these devices; the small form factor in the mobile devices poses unique challenges compared to laptops and desktops. With a shortage of well qualified technologists capable of developing mobile applications in the high tech MetroWest area of Massachusetts, this certificate program is designed to help the industry fill these positions. The certificate also offers opportunities for adults to gain knowledge in computing science for their current jobs or to pursue a career change.
