This program is offered at Clark State's Beavercreek and Springfield - Leffel Lane locations.
Information technology is one of the fastest-growing career fields today. The Computer Software Development curriculum focuses on programming, database, and web design. Students learn to analyze, design, and develop solutions to business problems through the use of technology.
The program schedule that follows is designed for full-time students who have completed all prerequisites and who have no college preparatory recommendations. Many individuals, especially part-time students, and those taking college preparatory courses, will require additional terms of study. Students should consult their academic advisors for help in planning their schedules.
Upon completion of an Associate of Applied Business degree in Computer Software Development, a graduate will be able to do the following:
- Analyze information system requirements and design appropriate software solutions.
- Write computer programs to implement information systems designs.
- Develop database systems to meet business data requirements.
- Design and create web sites.
- Find and correct errors in the design and implementation of software solutions.
- Utilize industry standard software effectively as a digital media editor.
Computer Software Development students need a high school algebra background equivalent to MTH 0650, Algebra for Non-STEM majors. Students with little or no computer background should enroll in ITS 0800, Computer Fundamentals, as a preparatory course before taking other computer courses. Students without adequate keyboarding skills should enroll in ITS 0810, Beginning Keyboarding, or ITS 1210, Keyboarding/Word Processing.
Most courses in the curriculum are available online or in hybrid format (part online, part classroom). The Advanced Topics course currently requires class attendance. Some courses may be available at only one location (Springfield or Beavercreek). Some courses are offered only once a year. Contact your academic advisor about course sequencing. Graduating Computer Software Development students wishing to further build their skills could also receive an Associate of Applied Business in the New Media Web Design Option by completing an additional 3 courses in the New Media curriculum.
This degree program contains one or more embedded certificates which will automatically be awarded if this certificate requirements are met unless the student contacts Records and Registration and indicates he/she does not wish to have the certificate credential awarded.

Students enrolled in Associate of Applied Business and Associate of Applied Science degree programs are preparing for employment upon graduation from the program. However, at some point many of these students are also interested in completing a bachelor's degree. A number of colleges or universities have bachelor's completion programs designed for students completing applied degrees. See the Transfer section of the catalog for more information.
