The short-term technical certificate in mobile device application development prepares students to design and develop applications for modern mobile computing platforms including the iPhone/iPad and Android phones and tablets. Students also learn to write web-based applications specifically targeted at mobile devices. A course in entrepreneurship is included to promote the entrepreneurial aspect of mobile application development. The credits earned for this certificate may be applied to an associate of applied business degree in mobile device application development.

This certificate is designed for those with previous professional software development experience (including web design) or those with an existing AAB or BS degree that includes significant coursework in programming (Java, C#, or C++) and web design. The prerequisite courses for the courses in this certificate are met by those students already holding an AAB degree in software development or web development from Lorain County Community College. All other students will be required to fulfill the prerequisite requirements by either taking the prerequisite courses or by requesting prerequisite waivers for the missing courses and providing evidence of past education or experience to satisfy those prerequisites.
