Overview

Build a career in software development with training in object-oriented programming, web-based application development and relational databases, while using up-to-date development tools and standards.

The Object Oriented Software Developer (OOSD) program is designed to provide you with the knowledge and practice you need to develop solid software development skills in minimal time. This program takes you from introductory concepts to advanced techniques in only 32 weeks.

You will gain experience in several object-oriented programming languages, web-based and Internet application development and relational databases while using a vast array of development tools. Mobile application development has recently been added to the program. After 24 weeks of formal instruction, you will put your knowledge and skills to work in a mandatory eight-week work practicum.

Is this the right fit for me?

Students with higher grades usually experience more success in SAIT programs. This is an intensive program requiring a commitment of both time and energy. Students who experience success are those who make their education a priority throughout the program.

The ideal candidate for the Object-Oriented Software Development (OOSD) program can think logically and concentrate for long periods of time. You enjoy developing innovative solutions to problems using computer programming. You are detail-oriented and can remain patient and persistent when debugging code. You are capable of learning independently and enjoy self-directed study. Most importantly, you possess previous work experience or education in computer programming.

Credentials 

After successfully completing this program, graduates will receive a SAIT Object-Oriented Software Developer certificate.
