Ideas for useful things that software program might do, and user requirements, will not be speculated to be patentable, and concrete implementations (i.e. the actual software packages implementing the patent) are usually not supposed to be patentable both—the latter are already covered by copyright, usually routinely.
College students receive in-depth training in programming techniques as well as evaluation, design, implementation and testing of new applications on multiple hardware and software platforms (e.g. Windows, Internet and Linux) using quite a lot of programming languages (e.g. Java, C, PHP, XML, PL/SQL, SQL) and completely different supporting applied sciences (e.g. Communications Networks, Databases, Working Methods).
