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 do not have a bachelor's degree in a technical field or prior programming experience, we recommend that you begin the program by taking, Introduction to Programming using Java, which will prepare you for taking I&CSCI X460.10 Java Programming.

To receive the certificate in Java Programming, you must complete the four (4) required courses and 3 units of elective courses (a total
