Mobile and apps development



Mobile apps are the future of computing. They're used across multiple platforms – phones, tablets, watches, cars, TV systems and websites. All devices are programmable, and provide a new market for apps to be developed and updated. In this rapidly growing field, talented developers are in demand to update existing apps and create new ones. This study area provides the skills to design, create and publish mobile apps and can lead to work in many industries.

We are moving towards a future where all devices are programmable, thus all devices are a new market for applications to be continually developed and updated.
