In our Software and Mobile Application Development program, you’ll learn to design and develop software, apps, or games for desktop and mobile environments. As a software developer, you’ll write, test and modify the code that allows software to run. Most developers focus on a few programming languages and learn to work from specifications written by other developers or analysts. They also work with designs provided by graphic designers, and focus their creative efforts on problem solving with code.

In the LCCC program, you’ll be exposed to a variety of programming languages and environments and have plenty of opportunities for hands-on work. You’ll learn the logic required to solve problems through programming and practice developing code that is scalable and economical. Depending on the coursework you select, you may focus on desktop applications, mobile apps, or gaming.

The program offers short-term certificates that can be earned in one semester, a one-year certificate, and Associate Degrees. Of course, you may choose to further your education beyond LCCC through our University Partnership or transfer programs.

Getting started while you’re still in high school

You don’t have to wait to graduate from high school to start earning college credit.

The College Credit Plus program offers you an opportunity to earn college credit as early as seventh grade. Courses are frequently offered on-site at local high schools. Students may also have the option of taking LCCC classes online or on our campus. Classes taken through CCP count for both high school and college credit and are FREE for most students.
