Software Development and Technology Entrepreneurship
In today's hyper-connected digital age organizations in almost every sector depend on the ideas, skills and support of software developers and computer scientists to survive and thrive. They play a key role in driving our society and economy forward. They solve software-related problems by applying theoretical principles, knowledge of systems, algorithms and software engineering methodologies. They develop secure, reliable and innovative software application, and they work productively in a team environment. Our graduates are ready to meet the challenges of this innovative field and will be in demand for their superior abilities in designing and implementing effective computer software.

“The diploma offered by LLI and developed by IIAD is cutting edge learning and practical hands on development. This course prepares the student for actually real time development working with companies doing projects in a collaborative environment, and mentoring them for their own start up tech companies. Technology has changed so much in the past 10 years, so should the way students prepare for the real world.
