Concentration Overview

The Web Programming concentration is a second year option of the Information Technology diploma program. You start this concentration in the second term of your first year, and continue throughout the second year of the program.

Organizations of all sizes need experts who can create, develop, and maintain websites and web applications which support business services and operations. In addition, with the growing use of cloud computing, more and more business applications are finding a home on the web.

Web programming encompasses various non-design aspects of developing websites and web-based applications, and ranges from developing a simple static page to complex data-driven applications, e-commerce, and social network applications.

This concentration focuses on building your programming skills to form a solid foundation in current and emerging web-based technologies. You develop skills and knowledge in web application development, user-interface design and usability, web server administration and security, and mobile application development. Plus, you learn to combine these skills to create effective solutions.
