C++ Programmer

Continuing Education Workforce Certificate





Students can pursue a career as an entry-level C++ programmer. C++ programmers write, modify and test C++ code for browsers, operating systems, applications and gaming. They collaborate with stakeholders on company needs and turn that into applications people can use. They need to have a very good understanding of the object-oriented programming language and how it can be used in real-world situations.​

This program is designed to introduce students to the concepts, terminology, application, and coding of the C++ programming language. Students will learn fundamental programming concepts, including decision making and looping, with the support of practical, step-by-step examples. Students will gain an understanding of the basics of structured and object-oriented programming techniques and will be able to build C++ programs.

Since this course is delivered completely online, students will need to have the self discipline to complete all required material on their own. A course instructor will be available to assist students with questions and to lead online activities during the course of the class.​

​According to the U.S. Department of Labor, overall employment of computer programmers is projected to decline 9% from 2020 to 2030 in Maryland. Projected annual job openings in Maryland are 380. Additional career information may be found in Career Coach:
