The Software Developer graduate acquires the basic knowledge, skills, and abilities to qualify for career opportunities as a Junior Full-Stack Software Developer. Students complete practical, hands-on projects that emphasize quantitative reasoning, analysis and problem solving, technical writing and communications, and disciplined development of modern front-end and back-end software systems. Students should expect to work collaboratively on project-based assignments.

The program includes an eight-week work practicum and participation in MITT’s Work Skills Series workshops which provides students a solid foundation in the employability and essential skills employers demand. Graduates are provided access to the GitHub platform where they can further develop their professional presence.

Note: The Software Developer program is continuously updated to reflect current technologies and trends in the industry. Course offerings, content, and order are subject to change.

Who it is for

Individuals who are highly motivated, have an aptitude for logical reasoning and problem-solving, and who desire a career working in technology—either independently or as part of a team. Students who are interested in this profession should also be patient, prepared to work long hours, and enjoy a collaborative work environment.

Work practicum

There will be an unpaid, seven-week internship at the end of the program. Students will be required to successfully complete all coursework and meet practicum eligibility requirements prior to being placed on internship.

Work practicum is a mandatory component of this program. Students must meet all program eligibility criteria to qualify for practicum. MITT does not guarantee practicum placements when students do not meet eligibility criteria (including having a valid co-op work permit) or when sufficient placements are not available. In such situations, MITT will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.

COVID-19 Response

Due to the challenges raised by COVID-19, MITT reserves the right to alter course delivery methods and/or program durations. Course deliveries may require increased percentages of online/distance learning components, alternatives to work practicums, and extended program durations to accommodate physical distancing and work practicum placement restrictions. MITT will be providing an exceptional level of enhanced student and program supports to ensure this modified program experience continues to meet all required learning outcomes for your program.

Continuous Program Improvement

MITT continuously reviews and improves programs to maintain relevance in the workplace and effective learning experiences for all students. Although the institution strives to have the website reflect the most current version of all programs, MITT reserves the right to change the program curriculum as necessary to meet industry and accreditation requirements. As a result, course information and learning outcomes may be adjusted prior to the scheduled course start date.
