What graduates are saying about AD at NSC
"Being a student of the Application Development program at NSC gave me a fundamental understanding of programming, algorithms, and how to come up with creative solutions for complex problems. The AD program at NSC allowed me to get a quality internship, and get hired by the same company after my internship was complete. The instructors and staff were great in helping guide me through changing careers, and equipping me with the fundamental knowledge of what it takes to make it in the software industry." - Darcey Tatum, NSC Application Development Grad
