Program Admission Dates: Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer

This four-quarter certificate program is designed to prepare individuals to work as entry-level application developers within an organization. Students will acquire the skills to design, code, implement, and maintain programs and database systems that provide computer-based solutions to business problems. In the final term students collaborate on a project that simulates a real-life team-based applications development environment.

Lake Washington Institute of Technology does not offer every course each quarter. It is the student’s responsibility to consult the Class Schedule and work out an individual schedule with an adviser or counselor. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.

Note: On October 5, 2017, the program description was updated to remove reference to a final quarter internship. The course requirements for this certificate do not include internship hours.
The Software Development certificate requirements were corrected on October 30, 2017. Revisions were previously omitted in error. If you have any questions about the changes, please contact program faculty at 425.739.8100.
