Studying the Diploma of Information Technology (Advanced Programming) at Holmesglen
You will draw on knowledge and skills developed in a prior certificate IV qualification that focused on foundation programming skills and knowledge, or skills that have been developed over more than two years working as a programmer in the industry. This course culminates in an industry-based capstone project, where you will work as part of a team developing a software solution for an industry-based client. Working with the client the team will design, develop and implement a software solution against an approved specification that will support the client's business operations. During the capstone project, you will need to engage with your team to analyse, design, build, test and manage a small- to medium-sized software application.
You'll be learning on campus in high-quality facilities or remotely from your chosen location, and have the opportunity to be trained and mentored by experienced, enthusiastic teachers working with you to develop the best of your programming capabilities.
This course is delivered on campus and remotely via WebEx, at the same scheduled class time. Students can either attend on campus or join the class online.
