The Graduate Certificate in Software Design & Development (GCSDD) provides fundamental concepts of computer science and software development in a six-course sequence. The curriculum covers essential concept areas within computer science including: data structures and algorithms, systems programming, and software engineering life cycle and modeling.
Students develop the core skills needed as a pathway for further work or study in computer science and software engineering, or cyber security engineering.
These courses are created from critical points of a computer science bachelor’s degree core curriculum at a pace and intensity that is reflective of, and appropriate for, a post-baccalaureate student.
Successful completion of the three quarter program provides a pathway for admission into the Master of Science in Computer Science and Software Engineering, or the Master of Science in Cyber Engineering, at UW Bothell.
