This certificate program approaches the C++ programming language as an extension of the C language. C++ adds object-oriented programming capabilities to the traditional C development environment. This approach allows UCSD Extension to provide extended programming capabilities and experience to both novice and seasoned programmers by utilizing the full complement of C/C++ utilities and its development environment. The certificate is designed to allow students to enter and be productive in the fields of programming, software analysis, algorithm design, object-oriented software development, and software test and integration. Students will also gain the tools and techniques necessary to stay current with rapidly changing technologies, move on to other environments like Java, or complement a formal degree. Upon completion of the program, students will be well prepared to design, develop, implement, and maintain complex C/C++ applications in various environments.
There will be a $60 fee upon acceptance into the program

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 email@example.com if you would like to see the syllabus of the prerequisite course.
You officially have 5 years to complete all requirements for the certificate, although it generally takes between 4 to 5 quarters depending on whether you take the prerequisite course.
