Part-time Statement of Completion 0325000000

Learn Web Coding in 12 Weeks

Web Development Fundamentals is a series of hands-on web code development and related courses leading to a statement of completion from BCIT Computing.

Students with no web coding background will learn to write code to develop and manage basic web sites to industry standards. This statement of completion is a subset of the Applied Web Development (AWD) associate certificate in Computing Part-time Studies.

This foundation in web development may be completed in as little as one term (12 weeks) part-time. COMP courses are available weeknights, Saturdays and with fast-track day delivery options at our BCIT Downtown Campus near the Granville SkyTrain Station.

Web Development Fundamentals provides 11.5 credits that also apply to the BCIT Applied Web Development (AWD) associate certificate, which may be completed entirely part-time. COMP courses are applied and delivered by subject matter experts who are industry practitioners.

At the end of this series of web coding and related courses, successful participants will receive a BCIT Computing Statement of Completion in Web Development Fundamentals.

Registration is course by course and these courses may be completed one course at a time at nights or on weekends. Start with just one course and pay as you go.

Program Details

In the first course COMP 1850, students learn the best practices and tools used for the design and hand coding of web pages and web sites. In the compressed versions, students may also complete COMP 1950 in the same term during the week, along with COMP 2015 on Saturdays over 6 weeks after COMP 1850.

COMP 1850, COMP 1950 and COMP 2015 provide a solid understanding of best practices in web page design and hand coding using industry standard scripting tools. Students learn HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and JQuery, plus responsive design, and source control using GIT.

BCIT web development students will also complete COMP 1956 Creating Web Graphics 1 using Photoshop on Saturdays over 4 weeks. As part of this statement of completion, we are including our 12 week evening course COMP 1011 UX/UI Development.

Tuition for these 5 courses is around $2,000 for 138 hours of class time. Most students can expect to spend over 300 hours completing reading, homework, assignments and web projects outside of class.

Students who choose the intensive 12 week delivery of this Statement of Completion in the Web Development Fundamentals should plan on over 430 hours total work to get through these courses, averaging 36 hours per week. This series of related courses may also be completed over multiple terms with lighter workloads.

NOTE: The passing grade for all of these COMP courses is 60%, attendance is mandatory and all assignments must be completed in order to pass each course.

Grading

Students will be given a grade for each course based on the listed competencies. In some cases each course carries a mark for individual work; some courses require team work, as well as an individual test. Assignments, exams and presentations will be used in the evaluation of students.
