Web Development - Certificate of Achievement
The goal of the Certificate of Achievementin Web Development is to provide students with the opportunity to acquire training necessary to meet
the demand for skilled personnel to develop and maintain websites for private corporations,
non-profit or government organizations, and individuals.
The need for individuals who possess web development skills has grown exponentially in recent years due to convergence of technology on the Internet and the prominent role web sites play in the daily activities of businesses and other organizations.
The web curriculum is a vocational program that reflects the multi-faceted nature of the competencies required to become a professional web developer. The program is, therefore, interdisciplinary and draws from courses offered in both the Computer Applications and Web Technologies (CAWT) and Computer Science Departments. Cooperative Work Experience Education is also an essential component included in the sequence of required classes.
The curriculum is designed to provide students with a strong and balanced foundation in aspects of both front- and back-end web development. Students will develop proficiency with markup languages, cascading style sheets, web authoring software, database connectivity, image and search engine optimization, client- and server-side programming, e-commerce considerations, and the entire web life-cycle development process.
Student Learning Outcome:
Students will be able to demonstrate proficiency in the core knowledge and skills needed to develop and implement dynamic, interactive websites.
