C and C++ are two of the most popular languages for applications where speed, efficiency, and compact executable code size are major considerations. Usages range from the simplest embedded microcontrollers, to games, multimedia applications, compilers, and well known complex operating systems. Many of today's popular programming languages, including Java, Perl, and Python, have borrowed directly or indirectly from C or C++. Students who know C and C++ have an advantage learning these and other programming languages.
This certificate program starts by treating C++ as an extension of C, then progresses to the C++ object-oriented model and other advanced features. Students are exposed to a diverse range of programming situations and techniques that will be of value to novice and seasoned programmers alike. The C and C++ certificate is designed to provide the tools necessary to stay current with rapidly changing technologies, progress to other programming languages, or simply complement a formal degree. Upon completion of this specialized certificate, students will be prepared to design, develop, implement, and maintain C and C++ applications. This program equips participants to be productive in many related fields including software analysis, test and integration, and embedded systems engineering.

The courses alternate between in-class and online offerings per quarter. All in-class courses use a blended approach, meaning that they combine face-to-face classroom methods with computer-mediated learning activities. For online classes, all assignments and test/quizzes are completed online and submitted through Blackboard, our online learning platform.
The prerequisite is not required in order to complete the prerequisite. However, it serves as a guideline to students as to the level of knowledge required for students enrolling into the first required course in this program. Those with little to no programming experience must take the Introduction to Programming course prior to enrolling in C/C++ Programming I. Those who wish to skip the prerequisite may do so without a department waiver. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to see the syllabus of the prerequisite course.
Students who choose to take one course per quarter for 5 consecutive quarters can complete the program in 15 months. Students who do not need the prerequisite course CSE-40028 Introduction to Programming can complete the program in 1 year. You have up to five years to complete all requirements for the certificate.
Yes, the program is open to non-California residents, including non-US residents. The tuition is the same for all students.
