IT-Microsoft Visual Studio.Net


Program number: 901525CERT


The Microsoft Visual Studio.Net Certificate at Madison College is designed to prepare IT professionals to use Microsoft’s Visual Studio.NET applications development suite. This certificate allows students to augment skills learned in Madison College's Information Technology two-year associate degree programs.

Visual Studio.NET is Microsoft’s tool for building next-generation web applications and XML web services. Visual Sudio.NET empowers developers to design broad-reach Web applications for any device and any platform. In addition, Visual Studio.NET is built on, and full integrated with, the Microsoft.NET Framework. This integration enables Visual Studio.NET to provide support for multiple programming languages and to perform many common programming tasks automatically, freeing developers to rapidly create web applications using their language of choice.

This certificate program is being aligned with the Microsoft Certified Applications Developer (MCAD) exams, which will lead to Microsoft Certified Application Developer (MCAD) certification.
