ITE508 Mobile Data Architecture (8)

This subject gives students advanced skills in designing, developing and deploying Web applications with Microsoft Visual Studio and Microsoft SQL Server. Students will learn the fundamentals of Model View Controller (MVC) design and multi-tier architecture. Emphasis is placed on creating web based server data stores able to be remotely accessed via multiple platforms. Students will design and build a database, an Application Programming Interface (API), and a Web application. They will ensure quality by debugging, unit testing, and refactoring of their application.

No offerings have been identified for this subject in 2020.

Where differences exist between the Handbook and the SAL, the SAL should be taken as containing the correct subject offering details.
