International Diploma in Software Development is designed to provide you with knowledge and skills necessary to be a software developer, system analyst, database designer or database administrator. You will learn how to develop a software application systematically starting from requirement analysis to implementation.
This diploma course will give you
an understanding of different types of software systems used in business
skills in the most widely used approach to software construction – Object-Oriented design including analysis and specification, testing and maintenance
ability to work with other people in a team, communicating computing ideas effectively
a basis for going on to further study in computing, or for finding work in computing-related industries.
