Our Graduate Success Stories

I have been exceedingly impressed with Herzing Online, and I would recommend their online programs to all my family and friends.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT — OVERVIEW

While all computer scientists analyze clients’ needs in order to design, test, and develop software to meet those needs, there are two specialties available to software developers: computer applications and computer systems.

  • Computer applications software engineers - develop applications software, typically in the C, C++ and Java languages. About 60% of computer software engineers specialize in applications software.
  • Computer systems software engineers – experts in analyzing the software and infrastructure needs of an organization and then coordinating the construction, expansion, and implementation of the solutions. They may also work for a design house as a member of a team that is assigned to a special project for a client.

Software Development — Is it for you?

Software engineers rely heavily on the ability to analyze and evaluate technical data. Professionals in this field must have a strong aptitude for mathematics and reasoning, a keen attention to detail, and interpersonal skills in order to work as part of a team and communicate technical details to clients in layman terms.

The information below reflects aggregated data from all of the Herzing University campuses that have students enrolled in the specified program in the specified time period. The information does not reflect data regarding individual campuses unless only one campus had students to report. The reporting period used to obtain this data was 7/1/2012-6/30/2013. If there were less than 10 graduates in a program, median loan debt and on-time completion data were not disclosed for that program to protect the privacy of those students. Tuition and length may vary by campus location. Ranges could not be input for tuition and length, therefore tuition and length reported are the highest tuition rates and longest program length to encompass all campuses.
