The Mobile Development Program introduces the fundamental concepts of mobile applications, providing comprehensive coverage of client-side development. Students will receive the skills and knowledge to build engaging, interactive user experiences on mobile as an iOS developer.

Classroom lecture and hands-on instructions will be provided by full-time industry professionals. Students will gain invaluable knowledge and experience developing with Cocoa Touch, UIKit, Swift, and other fundamental frameworks. Throughout the program, students will complete a series of professional portfolio projects that they can showcase for potential employers when seeking employment.

After 9 months of classroom instruction, students move onto the externship portion of the course. Much like an internship, an externship is where you work for a company at the entry level, but an externship is typically unpaid. The externship is an extension of the classroom learning where students are required to complete 240 hours either through a full-time (38-40 hours per week) or part-time (18-20 hrs per week) schedule. By the end of this course, students will have knowledge, confidence, and skills to be entry-level to junior-level iOS developers in today’s job market.
