App Developer

Want to know what makes Angry Birds or Words with Friends so addictive?

App developers learn the programming language for their chosen platform and come up with exciting ideas for new applications.

Computer Hardware Engineer

Computer hardware engineers work with computer components like circuit boards, networks, routers, and processors. A cable box for home internet is possible because of computer hardware engineers.

WordPress Developer

WordPress is a content management system, or CMS, that powers about 15% of the world’s top websites and 35% of the entire web. WordPress developers build websites either for themselves or clients. WordPress developers can have a number of programming capabilities, including Javascript and PHP.
