DSU President Harry L. Williams said this new training is yet another fruit that is yielded from the University’s relationship with Barclays Bank.
“Barclays has been supportive of DSU by providing our College of Business students with internships, and now they have come forward to help DSU expand into this needed skill area,” said Dr. Williams. “DSU is grateful and proud to have a committed partner in Barclays Bank, a financial institution that not only believes in the mission of DSU, but also helps us to fulfill it.”
Upon completion of the six-week class, participants will meet the program’s desired target, which its graduates who can pass the Oracle Java Level I Exam. Hands-on classes will extend through Aug. 12.
The seventh floor of the DSU Living and Learning Commons houses the newly renovated state-of-the-art Mobile App Laboratory.
The University plans to offer the course again within the next year.
