What Will I Accomplish While Earning A Software Developer Certificate?

Problem solving is a key part of Information Technology. In fact, strong problem-solving skills are vital to student success within the program. Students must also have excellent communication skills. Being able to express findings, listen to and empathize with classmates, and handle conflicts are all important parts of the IT field. Successful students of software development are interested in learning as a life-long pursuit. New developments happen every day in technology, and staying on top of trends is vital.

Keys to Success

Students successful in the Software Developer Certificate program at South College create and build on knowledge of operating systems, databases, and network signals to gather data and report information from software systems. Designing data constructs, they describe and store object attributes for processing and reporting. Developing software to solve specific problems, students use appropriate algorithms and logic to process data that produces relevant information and actionable results.

Eric Lee Miller - South College Student Success Story

I like South College because of the other students and the teachers that go out of their way to make sure you are good. The administration seems to really care. That’s what I like about South College – we are family.

I went to college originally straight out of high school with the intent of majoring in musical performance with a concentration in theoretical studies. I was not prepared to for college at that point, so I decided to gain some experience and maturity by joining the work force full-time. After working for 10 years, I felt it was time to try school again.

I considered dozens of schools with similar online programs, but South College was just so proactive and more helpful than the others. It was stress-free for me to enroll and get started. Also, being a military-friendly institution made it easier for me to use my Post 9/11* GI Bill® benefits with the Yellow Ribbon Program.
*Post 9/11 GI Bill® students are required to verify their enrollment each month.
