Mobile Application Development Major

Instant access. That’s what we all want today and that’s why cell phones, iPads, tablets and other devices are changing the way we communicate, do business and access news and entertainment. Whether iOS, Android or other platform, mobile application demand is skyrocketing, along with the need for mobile app developers.

Developers become fluent in modern programming languages such as Java and C++. They code, test, debug, monitor and document changes for mobile apps and implement application programming interfaces to upgrade applications.

Software developers can look forward to a supercharged job outlook – 30% growth over the next decade, which is a “much faster than average” rate, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Handbook. And when you take your Stark State mobile apps development associate degree and apply it to a bachelor’s degree, you’re likely to see a hefty paycheck after graduation: in 2010 the median annual wage of applications software developers nationally was nearly $87,800, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports.

If you’d like to be the creative mind behind today’s hottest computer programs, a mobile app development career may be calling you.
