The Java programming
language lies at the core of many large-scale business applications – especially business-to-business commercial systems
that fuel the Internet economy. In addition, the portability inherent in Java is useful for programming a wide variety of portable
electronics, from smart phones (Android, BlackBerry, Samsung) to embedded systems in a rapidly expanding number
of consumer products. Programmers currently using other languages are likely to encounter projects in the near future that require
knowledge of Java.
Who Should Enroll
This certificate program is designed for people who already have introductory Java programming experience or experience using
another object-oriented language such as C++ or C#. If you already work with Java, you may find the courses on Unified Modeling
Language (UML) and Object-Oriented Analysis and Design to be useful as stand-alone courses to help improve your application design
Because most Java application development is conducted using an engineering approach, we recommend that you have at least a bachelor’s
degree in a technical field, such as computer science or engineering, before starting this program. If you don't have a bachelor's degree in a technical field or prior programming experience, we recommend that you begin the program by taking I&C SCI X460.20 Introduction to Programming using Java, which will prepare you for I&C SCI X460.10 Java Programming I.
Certificate Eligibility and Requirements
To receive the certificate in Java Programming, you must complete the four (4) required courses and 3 units of elective courses (a total
of 15 units of coursework), with a grade of "C" or higher in each course. To become an official candidate in the program, students pursuing the certificate must submit a Declaration of Candidacy. Students are encouraged to declare candidacy as soon as possible, but no later than after the third course in the program. To receive the certificate after completing all program requirements, students must submit a Request for Certificate. All requirements must be completed within five (5) years after the student enrolls in his/her first course. Students not pursuing a certificate are welcome to take as many individual courses as they wish.
