Applications developers, also referred to as app developers, have a very important role to play in today’s businesses. They create, test and program apps for computers, mobile devices and other types of electronic devices.

“Every day we are inundated with Apps,”said Leon Morris, Eastern College’s Applications Developer Instructor.  “Saying ’there’s an app for that’ is no longer a fleeting joke. It has become a reality. There is indeed an app for almost every aspect of our lives.”

Apps developers understand coding languages and how to use them. They are proficient in coding for various operating systems, such as Android and iOS for iPhone.

The Applications Developer diploma program will provide students with a thorough understanding of programming logic and design, programming languages like JavaScript, as well as programs like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.

“Our mobile devices are far more than just phones. We conduct our daily lives on them. We depend upon them. From communications to banking to business to learning to entertainment,”said Morris. “Application and mobile developers are, and will be, in high demand.”

Students who complete this program will be eligible to write one certification exam that is a stepping stone to a Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) certification.

The remaining certification exams include two Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) certifications in each of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. Students are provided with these three certification exam vouchers to write the certifications they wish to pursue.

Heading into 2019, the employment outlook is good for Application Developers in New Brunswick. Graduates of this program will be able to pursue a multitude of positions such as website designer, junior web developer; junior java developer, android developer, mobile developer, and iOS developer.
