Microsoft .NET Applications Development Certificate

The 15-credit hour Microsoft .NET Applications Development certificate includes the sequence of five courses necessary to design and build Microsoft .NET web applications. The 15-credit hour Web Applications Development certificate includes the five courses needed to design and build advanced web applications using open source technologies. By taking a total of seven courses, students can complete both the Microsoft .NET Applications Development Certificate and the Web Applications Development Certificate, if they have taken a CTA course, which is the prerequisite for both certificates, and SDD 240 Available Online - JavaScript, which is the prerequisite for the SDD 310 course in the Microsoft .NET Applications Development certificate.

These certificates are ideal for Computer and Network Security (C&NS) majors, since the internet is generally the medium used for attacks that exploit the security vulnerabilities in computer and network systems. Students in the Media Design - Web concentration, where SDD 100 Available Online is already a required course, only have to complete four additional courses to receive one of the certificates. Students majoring in the Information Systems Management can use their electives to complete one of the certificates, if they want to learn software development skills using either the Microsoft .NET framework or open source technologies. Other students can complete either one or both certificates, if they satisfy Contemporary Technology Applications (CTA) prerequisite, either by taking a CTA course or an equivalent course, or by completing a prior learning assessment regarding the student's computer skills. In addition, SDD 240 Available Online - JavaScript is a prerequisite for the SDD 310 course in the Microsoft .NET Applications Development certificate.

Note: Students are held to all prerequisite requirements; some students may require more than 5 courses to complete this certificate.
