Degree (AAS) two-year program, Intermediate Technical
Certificate one-year program, and the Advanced Technical
Certificate which is a shorter four-semester program. All web
development programs are designed to prepare students for
employment by providing hands-on “job ready” competencies
through courses that teach skills to build cutting edge web sites
and web applications from the ground up. Students will have
the opportunity to build an impressive portfolio of completed
web sites. The current industry certifications awarded through
this program will enable students to distinguish themselves by
demonstrating in-depth knowledge and expertise in a variety of
web development areas.

demonstrate this level of knowledge with a current IC3
certification, successfully passing CIS 101 with a grade of “B”
or better, passing the EITC Computer Literacy Exam with an
80% or better, and/or gaining instructor permission. It is
recommended that all prospective students visit with an
instructor to review their particular qualifications and receive an
overview of the program prior to enrollment.
All three programs focus on an in-depth coverage of web
development that covers current markup language, style sheets
and scripting languages, web development tools, current web
design, database skills, and query languages. Students will also
practice soft skills needed to work successfully with clients,
administration, and co-workers
In addition to the skills listed above, the Associates of Applied
Science (AAS) degree students will also have the opportunity to
complete an internship to demonstrate industry work
experience. AAS students will go in-depth with client and server-
side programming to create web projects with dynamic content.
AAS students will also learn how to successfully market the Web
sites they create and will have the opportunity to obtain industry
certifications, learn about mobile application development, and
the very latest in emerging technologies of the internet.
