Bachelor of Applied Science - Software / Application Development
Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degrees build on two-year associate's degrees that prepare students for work. They are hands-on, technical programs that give students skills and knowledge to apply to the workforce immediately upon graduation. An applied bachelor's degree focused on application/software development prepares students with practical computer science skills using a range of programming languages. Graduates are prepared to obtain an entry-level position in software development demonstrating competency in software engineering, testing principles, and quality assurance techniques.
Offered at local community and technical colleges, Bachelor of Applied Science programs offer a pathway to in-demand technical careers in a smaller classroom setting with affordable tuition and flexible class scheduling.
Graduates from these BAS programs are now working in roles such as: software engineer, software developer, front-end / full-stack web developer, database administrator, technical program manager, application support engineer, mobile application developer, QA analyst, systems engineer, business analyst, and more.
