NACA-120
4 Credits
This course will introduce the fundamentals of problem analysis and problem-solving methodologies including logical structures and algorithms. Students will learn how to frame narrative problems into programmable structures, develop testing plans, effectively analyze and remove errors, and ensure the resulting solution satisfies the original requirements. Students will learn to create basic programs reflecting that analysis using a contemporary programming language.
NACA-121
4 Credits
This course is a continuation of NACA-120 that delves further into problem solving and software development with a focus on object-oriented design and development. Students will continue to learn basic software design, incremental development, testing, and verification. Students will also learn key topics including classes, objects, encapsulation, inheritance, interfaces, software design comprised of multiple classes, UML (Unified Modeling Language) as a design/documentation tool, data structures, exception/error handling, and file I/O.
NACA-172
3 Credits
This course introduces students to web page and small-scale website development. Through hands-on laboratory experiences, students will learn the fundamental concepts needed to construct web pages that follow appropriate coding standards as well as basic design principles to present content in an attractive and organized manner. Topics include HTML, CSS, graphical elements, website publishing, and transfer protocols.
NACT-120
3 Credits
This course is an introduction to using general-purpose software tools. The tools to be covered include word processing, spreadsheet, database, and presentation software as well as an email client. Students will do hands-on work in each application.
NACT-170
3 Credits
This course introduces students to designing and coding a multipage web site. Topics include an overview of the internet and web addressing, coding valid HTML and CSS, design principles, implementation on a server, and use of web development software. The use of hyperlinks, graphics, and multimedia in web pages will be covered.
NACT-250
3 Credits
This course will explore the unique computer and data security issues encountered by computer technicians. Using current computer security tools and procedures, students will develop more advanced skills in finding and eliminating security weaknesses, breaches, and malware programs. Computer security incident response procedures will also be introduced in this course. Hands-on lab activities will be used to reinforce concepts and to provide real-life situations that give students experience in handling suspected security breaches.
NMAD-180
4 Credits
This course will provide students with a study of the fundamental concepts, logical structures, and algorithms inherent to computer programming. Students will learn how to write basic object-oriented programs in a contemporary programming language with a focus on mobile application development.
NMAD-181
4 Credits
This course builds upon the programming skills developed in Programming Fundamentals I Mobile Domain and will cover more advanced object-oriented programming concepts, logical structures, and algorithms. Visual information system modeling, graphical user interfaces and software testing topics will also be covered. Students will be working individually on mobile-related projects as well as working with other students in team-based projects.
NMAD-262
3 Credits
Students learn how to consume server-side web services that can deliver data in different formats to a variety of applications by building on their previous experience with websites and applications. They use a hands-on approach to build and modify different types of databases for use with their web services while exploring how data can and why it should be shared by multiple devices and applications. Students also gain an understanding of how to detect different devices over the Internet and generate specific targeted content. Use of pre-existing components, APIs and frameworks to improve efficiency is also explored. Methods for efficient data-transfer, to increase battery life, are a key topic in this course. Students work individually, as well as with other students, to complete tasks.
NMAD-290
3 Credits
Working in teams, students experience the analysis, design, implementation, testing and deployment of a mobile solution for a real-world client. Important topics from throughout their program of study are applied in this course. Faculty advisors facilitate student teams to demonstrate their skills in the applied project. Student teams make a technical presentation to their faculty advisors and participate in a public showcase of projects.
