By using a "best practices" approach to web development, you will create sites that are not only visually appealing but are also accessible, usable, and standards compliant.
Upon completion of the TWD program, you will have a publicly accessible web portfolio showcasing your work created throughout the program along with your industry project.
You will learn techniques in application development, be exposed to several current web technologies, and apply system development best practices to design and develop usable and effective web sites.
The program is delivered through classroom instruction, hands-on lab work and individual and team projects. Applicants for the Technical Web Designer program should possess sound logical and reasoning abilities, as well as good communication skills - both written and oral. Applicants should also have a working knowledge of Windows or Mac OS and be comfortable working with files and folders (saving, copying, moving and renaming files and folders).
