Building Futures - Creating Meaningful Lives

Software Development and Business Design

Computers Computers
 

The Software Development and Business Design curriculum focuses on the software development lifecycle and how the software and business world interrelate.  This is a project based two year program that will teach students how to create a business plan, conduct market research, and create websites/software to satisfy the needs of customers and society. 

 

In the first year, students will learn the basic elements of web design and Java programming.  The objective of year one is to get all students comfortable with the software development lifecycle with a focus on technical writing and design documentation. 

 

In the second year, students will break into business teams.  Each team will draft a contract of employment between each other and design their business from the ground up.  As a senior, each team will be responsible for conducting market research and developing advanced websites and android apps that will satisfy the needs discovered through market research. 

 

A student who participates in both years will leave with excellent problem solving, public speaking, and research skills.  Students who finish this program will also be ready to excel in a workforce or at the college/university level.
