The Best Tech & Engineering Majors for Becoming a Mobile App Dev

Entering the field of mobile app development can seem extremely complex. Due to its status as a relatively new industry the road to becoming a mobile app developer can appear to be quite mysterious. This passage will list the best tech and engineer majors to take at college in order to enter this industry.

 

The most obvious major for this field would be in mobile app development. A major in mobile app development will provide you with a foundational knowledge in the field of mobile computing, provide you with a hands on experience with numerous mobile application software, an understanding of the ever changing world of the mobile application development, learn about mobile encryption and understand the future of mobile devices. As it is a major in mobile app development then it will provide you with a specialized knowledge in the field, and though this may have a chance to shoebox your technological career, if you are certain mobile development is the career for you then such a major is perfect.

 

Perhaps the most popular major for the field of mobile app development would be computing science. To speak in Layman terms computing science is the study of algorithms, and how said algorithms can manipulate, communicate and store data. In the field of mobile app development these learnt skills will be used to write the software for an app, design an app and even create micro transactions or redemption codes within said app. The computer science major has become so entwined with mobile app development that even ivy league colleges like Harvard have begun to offer computing science and mobile app development as one unified major. For a more general and less specialized major, when compared to straight mobile app development, that will still offer you a pathway to mobile app development then computing science is perfect for you.

 

The final major to be mentioned in this passage is software engineering. In many regards software engineering is extremely similar to computing science. The key difference is highlighted by their names computing science focuses on the physical science behind computers, meanwhile software engineering is the study of the software systems for computers. This major will focus on software testing, design and specifications. These skills will be instrumental in the creation, the maintenance and the growth of a mobile application. Like the major of computing science, software engineering does not necessitate a career in mobile app development, but the two are extremely entangled.

 

All three of these majors will provide you with the skills to have a long and successful career in mobile app development. As of 2018 the mobile app industry was said to be worth over 58.7 billion dollars. This ever growing industry can now provide you with roles in app maintenance,  app growth, in app advertisements, data accumulation and in app micro transactions. Try keep in mind the fruitful nature of this industry, when choosing your major at college.
