This certificate program is designed for students seeking skills to create high-end websites with strong design and functional abilities. Students learn to design, create and administer interactive and professional web sites that utilize server-side programming technologies. Web page navigation, web publishing, web images preparation, database design and development and web language practice are integral components of this certificate which focuses on server-side programming.
This program is ideal for both graphic designers who need the technical programming skills to implement their website designs; and for students, not necessarily with an arts background, who want to pursue website programming.
Students who are interested in advanced programming skills may apply several of the courses from this certificate to a degree in Multimedia Programming, Simulation, and Gaming or a certificate in Multimedia Game Programming.
Potential job opportunities following program completion include web designer, web developer, web marketing manager, web manager, e-commerce manager, web programmer, web technician or web server administrator for corporate communications marketing, education, sales departments, design firms, publishers or animation studios.
