Students who graduate from this program would likely (a) apply for positions as Web designers/authors with some of the currently operating design houses, (b) start their own small businesses as freelance Web designers/authors, or (c) assume the role of Web designer/author for companies where they are currently employed. Many of the students in the program are currently in the last category. Many firms who desire a Web presence hire external design houses to author and maintain their Web pages and are often not satisfied with the results. They are therefore anxious to bring this work into the firm. Many students that in this program are being sponsored by their companies in order to develop sufficient expertise to become in-house designers.
BCIT recruits qualified faculty who have an ability to connect and communicate effectively with students.
Our instructors enjoy working with people, have industry experience, successful teaching experience at the post secondary level, and may have a master’s degree or specialized competency in the area of their expertise. Some have actually written the texts and case books you will be using in your studies.
