Computer Programming - Overview
There are four programs divided up into two levels.
Level I Career Certificate
The Computer Programming Pathway consists of one, Level I career certificate. This pathway also includes two, Level II career certificate choices.
The MCC Computer Programming pathway allows students to develop computer technology skills used in critical information technology roles in a wide variety of industries. Computer programmers use programming languages such as Python, Java, C# (C-Sharp), and C++ to create software that runs on a computer or mobile device. Any feature that people interact with on their computers or mobile devices is created by computer programmers. With the increase of computer chips in more devices, computer programmers are playing an increasingly important role in creating and making everyday work more convenient.
After selecting the Level I, Computer Programming career certificate, students should also choose their complimenting Level II career certificate from the options listed below.
