CSD-3464: Programming Java SE

Various components of the Java object-oriented programming language are introduced. Students (1) develop solutions using data types, I/O, control structures, methods and objects; (2) work with arrays, reference types, inheritance, polymorphism, packages, GUI applications and recursion; and (3) document solutions with javadoc comments.

CSD-4103: Project Management

One of the most in-demand IT skills today isn't really an IT skill: it's Project Management. As more and more demand is placed on IT departments, there is more demand for professionals who understand and can manage in a project based environment. Using the principles as defined in accepted industry Project Management standards, this course provides a hands on framework for how to initiate, plan, execute, monitor and control, and close a project. Through the use of lectures, labs and assignments, students look at all stages of project development, with an eye to the tips and tricks that make a successful project. In addition, this course prepares students to challenge the CompTIA Project+ or the Certified Associate in Project Management(CAPM)® certification exams. CAPM, and PMI are registered marks of the Project Management institute.

CSD-3354: Web Applications using C# .NET

The C# programming language is expanded upon and ASP.NET is introduced. Students (1) implement web applications that follow the MVC architecture pattern by leveraging the ASP.NET MVC framework; (2) build web applications that interface with databases through the use of Entity Framework; (3) manage project dependencies with NuGet package manager; and (4) test applications with unit tests.

CPP-1001: Co-op Preparation

This course will provide students with employment preparatory skills specifically related to Co-operative Education. This will include understanding the Co-operative Education & Internship Policy, understanding the support system available through the Co-op and Career Services department, utilizing social media, preparing effective cover letters & resume as well as the fundamentals of behavioural based interviewing.

Term 3

CSD-3313: Web Technologies III

As a continuation of Web Technologies II, students design and implement component based web applications using JavaScript and JavaScript frameworks. This course introduces students to the MEAN (MongoDB, Express, Angular, Node) web stack. Students (1) develop web applications that maintain a NoSQL database; (2) implement and utilize web APIs; (3) implement security protocols; and (4) develop applications that run on a variety of computing platforms. Students add to their term project in Web Technologies II by designing and implementing component based applications that include client-side, server-side, and database processing.

CSD-4464: Programming Java EE

As a continuation of Programming Java SE, students (1) manage databases using Java; (2) build two- and three-tier client-server applications; and (3) refine industry-standard coding practices. Students build a complete Web-based application that incorporates three-tier development including client-side, server-side, and database processing.

CSD-4403: Enterprise Technologies

Students gain hands-on experience with emerging technologies in software development. Topics may include emerging technologies in programming languages, server-side development, NoSQL databases, and cloud systems.

CSD-4203: Database Programming

This course explores data modeling, SQL, and PL/SQL database programming as it relates to the Oracle database environment. Students (1) create entity-relationship (ER) diagrams using Oracle Data Modeler; (2) create anonymous blocks that include program structures to control execution flow, use embedded SQL, cursors, and exception handling; (3) create stored procedures and functions; and (4) create database triggers. Oracle Application Express (APEX) is used for PL/SQL development. As a term project, students utilize PL/SQL to provide a database solution for typical real-world business requirements.
