Mobile application development
This unit is concerned with the design, implementation and testing of applications for mobile devices using the Android operating system. Students work at all stages of the development life-cycle from inception to testing, whilst considering usability and device capabilities for a mobile application capable of meeting a functional specification. Students are introduced to the programming environment for application development and have a hands-on approach to programming using appropriate programming languages. Back to top

Human Computer Interaction and User Experience
This unit intends to introduce students to Human Computer Interactions (HCI) principles and how they can be applied in the software development process, what is User eXperience (UX), and how these can be applied to create effective UIs for mobile and web applications. Specifically students see what usability is and how it can be measured, how HCI can be used in all phases of the software development process, how HCI can be used to evaluate the usability of a software system, how to systematically design usable UIs, what is UX and how to achieve it.

Mr Nenad Pavlovic “Since I was a kid, I was always fascinated by technology. I got my first computer even before the era of the Commodore 64 and since then I have been hooked into the world of computers. However, new advanced technologies are never easy to use unless one is an expert in the subject. That reality shaped my driving belief that "everyone should be able to use advanced technologies in a simple way", which is exactly where my career focus has been ever since. What I found at CITY College was a great curriculum, amazing staff, and a cosmopolitan environment in the middle of beautiful city full of life and culture. The curriculum was truly contemporary and the friendly staff were very skilled in teaching; a true academic family. What I loved the most was that the approach to education promoted students’ innovative and critical thinking. All together, from the perspective of market needs, it was a finely tuned toolkit that made it very easy for me to start my career”
