Certificate of Achievement
This Java and Web Programming Certificate of Achievement is designed for those students with at least two years of college education and knowledge of CSC-161 Introduction to Computer Science Using Java and CSC-200 Networking Technologies or permissions of the chairperson.
This course will provide the student with a thorough understanding of what a database is and how it is used. Emphasis will be placed on the relationship and use of a database for the effective storage and retrieval of user data. The use of structured query language (SQL) will be presented. Hands-on laboratory experience will provide the student with practical applications in the use of databases.
This course will provide students with the information necessary to develop web sites using Server-Side Technology. PHP will be used to create dynamic web pages and process form data. Students will learn how to integrate functions into their programs as well as using hashing and regular expressions to solve problems and implement algorithms. They will also use array structures to better organize and process data. Students will also work to develop web pages which access and maintain data using a database system such as MySQL.
This course introduces the basic concepts of the LINUX/UNIX operating system including the LINUX/UNIX file system, shell programming and process management. Features of the LINUX/UNIX shell are explored, including: input and output redirection, pipes, variable and filename substitution, and shell and environmental variables. Regular expressions are covered. Students learn a POSIX compliant shell and develop the ability to use shell utilities and editors and create shell programs of moderate difficulty.
This course builds on the Java foundation developed in CSC 161 and is the second core course required for students in the Computer Science Transfer program. It investigates the software engineering principles of encapsulation, information hiding and code reuse, and discusses how these concepts are used to build abstract data types. The object oriented programming features of classes, inheritance, polymorphism and composition are studied, along with constructors and method overloading. Students implement Java programs incorporating features from the Java programming language.

This certificate of achievement provides students with an awareness of the internet and the world wide web. Publishing text, pictures, sound, and even video over the internet is becoming easier every day. Individuals who run small businesses with services to sell and people with stories to share will acquire the necessary skills to publish useful, attractive, and quality webpages. Upon completion of this certificate program, students will be able to create web sites and useful web pages.
The certificate of achievement is designed for those students with at least two years of college level education, including ENG-121 English Composition I. Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Algebra I competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or completion of the appropriate course. Students must have completed or CSC-105 or CSC-107 or MCT-101 or demonstrated equivalent proficiency before beginning this certificate.
Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the certificate may be completed in 1-2 semesters. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.
This certificate of achievement develops technical competence in Information Systems Security, an area that is critical to homeland security with rapidly expanding employment opportunities.
