UC Davis Extension to teach iPhone programming, other new IT courses

UC Davis Extension will offer new courses in information technology this spring, including one on how to develop programs for iPhones.

The iPhone class is especially timely, given the recent attention created by two UC Davis students who developed the UC Davis Mobile iPhone app for campus. They built it for "Introduction to iPhone Application Development," an Engineering Computer Science class that filled up within four hours last fall.

"The undergraduate course in iPhone programming is tremendously popular, and we're hoping to let faculty and staff know that a similar course is available to the public through UC Davis Extension," said Marketing Editor Emma Finley.

The Extension lineup includes:

  • Introduction to Game Programming Using Unity 3D
  • iPhone Programming
  • Visual Effects and Motion Graphics
  • 3D Digital Modeling Techniques

The classes cost $595, or $495 for early enrollment. UC Davis career staff and academics also receive discounts of 20 percent (50 percent if they enroll a few days before the class starts). See the UC Davis Extension IT Web site for detailed descriptions, instructor biographies and software requirements.

The courses will meet from April to June in the Sutter Square Galleria, 2901 K St., Sacramento. For more information or to enroll, call (800) 752-0881 or visit UC Davis Extension's main Web site.
