Data Systems & Development

The Data Systems and Development program equips students for a wide range of opportunities as computer programmers and software designers.  Areas include mobile application development, systems and database programming, and web development.  We offer coursework in Python, C/C++, Java, JavaScript and SQL.  Students learn under the MS Windows and Linux platforms.  

Students begin their training with foundational language courses and then may choose from a wide variety of advanced, industry-specific courses to customize their degree.  Students may also choose to select from a number of smaller degree certificates embedded within the software development program.  This program transfers to EIU, UIS, and SIU under 2+2 agreements

We offer a wonderful internship opportunity with local businesses as soon as students enter the program.  Upon graduation the student will have a degree AND years of workforce experience!
