The Information Technology Applications Development AAS 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, or complete an industry based-internship.
Information Technology Applications Development AAS degree graduates will:
The Information Technology Applications Development AAS-T program is intended for transfer to specific baccalaureate programs based on locally negotiated articulation agreements. Achievement of this degree will prepare the transfer student for upper division study.
Degree requirements details are listed in the online College Catalog. Lake Washington Institute of Technology may not offer every course each quarter. Students are advised to meet with an advisor to plan Class Schedules for current and upcoming quarters that meet the transfer requirements of the four-year college of their choice. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.
