Course Brief

Use of mobile devices has been experiencing a very significant increase in recent years. This is driven by the lowering cost of hardware components, service infrastructures as well as software architectures. With the fast expansion of mobile devices, the development of applications for these devices, whilst still at the forefront of technology, is fast entering the mainstream of software development.
Software developers entering this field need a critical awareness of how the characteristics of mobile devices and applications affect decisions about software design and be able to select, justify and use appropriate technologies, standards, APIs and toolkits to build mobile applications.
This course aims to prepare students to lead in the area of mobile software development by enhancing their critical analytical abilities in this field. The course aims to develop a high level of awareness in the application of the relevant technologies and equip students with well developed skills in the design and development of mobile applications using up-to-date software development tools and APIs.


  • This course is offered in 48 hours
  • On completing this course successfully you will be able to:
  • Have a critical awareness of and understand the technical challenges posed by current mobile devices and wireless communications; be able to critically evaluate and select appropriate solutions.
