Program Summary

The Web Development Program prepares students with skills and knowledge required to start a career as a Full Stack Web Application Developer. Student will learn how coding skills and agile web development business practices can be applied to solve real-world problems and support organizations to meet the demands of the ever-changing digital landscape.

Over a series of ten courses students will present, implement and maintain emerging web-based technologies – learning by doing to solve problems individually and collaboratively. Methodical, concise and communicative development practices are encouraged throughout the program.

You will use HTML, CSS and JavaScript to control how content looks on the front end while developing server-side applications, servers and databases that drive the back end.
