Introduction to Software Design and Development with Java

The University of New Orleans (UNO), in collaboration with New Orleans Women in Technology (WIT), is proud to present the first in a series of non-credit classes designed to make university-level technical courses available to working adults in the New Orleans metropolitan area.

  • Introduction to Software Design and Development with Java will meet over sixteen sessions on Wednesday evenings on the main campus, enabling area working professionals to improve their skills with personalized university-quality instruction, and the ease of local convenience and affordability.
  • Targeted towards professionals with some previous programming experience who are looking to deepen their understanding of object-oriented programming, this course emphasizes programming in a high-level, object-oriented language (Java, for the purposes of the course), and is centered on the design and implementation of object-oriented systems, employing an iterative specify/design/implement/test strategy.
  • Taught by university faculty from UNO’s Department of Computer Science, this course offers the quality of personal instruction and guidance with the convenience of online accessibility in a hybrid model: classes meet in person on the main campus one evening a week, with online modules, activities, and assignments allowing students to complete coursework on their own schedule.
  • With class size limited to twenty, students enjoy personalized attention with weekly instructor office hours, either in person or through easily accessible video chat.
