     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Division of Extended Studies is offering an Introduction to Java non-credit, professional development workshop geared toward entry level programmers.
     This new offering, which begins Wednesday, October 19, at the Livingston Literacy and Technology Center in Walker and Thursday, October 20, on Southeastern’s main campus, will be a one-day workshop from 6- 8 p.m. Cost for the class is $100.
      “This is a great workshop for students that want to learn the basics of programming with an object-oriented language,” said Tom Dawsey, extended studies recruiting and marketing manager. “Students will be taught how to create programs to solve mathematical problems for business situations using interactive applications that run over the Internet. This two-hour course can be combined with two additional classes, Java Part II and Part III to receive one continuing education unit (CEU) and a further understanding of data structures and implementation.” 
     Southeastern will also offer Introduction to Parametric Drafting with Inventor 2011. Students enrolled in the course will learn how to create 3D parametric parts, assembly models and document their designs with the industry-standard Autodesk 2011.
     This new 20-hour offering will meet weekly on Thursday nights from 5-9 p.m. on Southeastern’s main campus from November 3 through December 8. Cost of the course is $275.  
     “This course is designed for either experienced drafters who want to upgrade to using 3D parametric software or individuals who have never had a drafting course but may want to qualify for a new or better job,” said Dawsey. “It is also appropriate for individuals who just want to design basic mechanical components.”
