A new training programme and centre at ITE College East will teach mobile and Web application development to Institute of Technical Education students, under a newly-signed memorandum of understanding between app development platform OutSystems and ITE.
Students and lecturers will be trained in low-code software development, which is a method that requires little to no coding to build software. OutSystems will teach the students to quickly build applications with modern user interfaces and data.
The firm has been working with ITE students and staff on pre-trials since January to develop three mobile and Web applications for the healthcare sector. One of the student-developed applications can predict a user’s heart disease risk using artificial intelligence.
