Student will learn to apply error and exception handling concepts used in applications and Java applets. Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to create Java applications as well as functional applets.
- Advanced Object Oriented Programming - Java
This course will continue the exploration of object oriented programming with Java. Student will work with Java’s multithreading and network capabilities using files, databases, Web components, servlets, Java Server Pages and using the JavaFX Graphical User Interfaces. In addition, students will examine the effects of recursion, search and sort algorithms on memory and processor consumption as well as how to enhance an applet using multimedia. Additionally, students will learn how to set up and use NetBeans for Java development. Finally, students will learn how to build an ecommerce website using Java technologies.
- Database Programming Concepts with SQL
In this course, students will learn about the theory behind relational databases, relational database nomenclature, and relational algebra. Students will learn to create functional Structured Query Language (SQL) code to manage databases and manipulate data inputs and outputs. Students will learn to optimize databases through normalization. Students will apply their knowledge with hands-on exercises designed to teach the intricacies of database design methodology.
- Adobe Photoshop
This course begins with covering the key techniques for working with Photoshop. Students will learn the key elements of the Photoshop interface, and how the tools and features of this popular software can be used to edit images. Students will learn to use precise selection control to correct a wide range of lens-based errors, interactively transform their images with a variety of tools, effects and filters. With a focus on the key features and tools of Photoshop, students will work with layers, masks, channels, brushes and vector drawing techniques to prepare images for both Web and print production. The course then moves on to more detailed advanced features of Photoshop including raster based painting for illustrations, 3- D, video and animation techniques, colour controls, etc. Students will also learn to use the techniques for designing with advanced layering and image compositing techniques, working with actions scripts, batch processes and other time saving options
- Fundamentals of Web Development - HTML5 and CSS
This course provides an introduction to developing Web applications for the Internet using popular languages and technologies. The primary objective of this course is to familiarize the student with HTML5 and CSS. The main concepts for each of the above languages and technologies will be discussed and reinforced with a variety of hands on exercises. Students will use the languages and technologies learned in this course to examine client-server processing concepts, build and link Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and create static and dynamic Web pages.
- Python Development
This course introduces the students to the Python programming language. Students will continue to integrate Object-Oriented programming concepts will learning the features of the Python programming language. This course also explore Internet programming including accessing client-side network protocols and email tools, using CGI scripts, and website implementation techniques using Python.
- Android App Development
This course explores the building of mobile applications using the Android SDK. Using a hands-on approach, this course will show developers how to leverage the latest features of Android to create robust and compelling mobile apps. Through a series of projects, each one introducing a new Android platform feature, students will learn the techniques and best practices that exploit Android's utmost functionality. Students will learn how to quickly construct real-world mobile applications for all mobile platforms, including tablets.
- iOS Development with Swift
This course provides the students with the knowledge and skill to build iOS applications using the Swift programming language. Students will learn the syntax and features of Swift 4 and Xcode 9, the building blocks of Apple development.
