IT Mobile Developer Laptop Requirements

The IT-Mobile Developer program requires the student to purchase a personal laptop, a tool of the trade, prior to the start of their 3rd semester. The laptop must meet the minimum requirements or better to be used for the second year of the program. Due to the development on the iOS platform, a MacBook is a required platform. Both Mac and Windows operating systems will be used throughout the program courses.
