Program Overview

Transform yourself from a web user to a web developer. This program teaches you computer programming by exploring and building web applications much like the ones you use every day.

You learn:

  • How to be a skilled computer programmer
  • How to develop complex data-driven web applications using a wide variety of different technologies and languages
  • The basics of server administration and visual design

You develop and apply these skills through individual and team-based projects that simulate the work you'd experience in industry.

Admission Requirements

  • High School Graduation Diploma or equivalent.
  • Advanced Standing – To be considered, you must apply to and meet the admission requirements for this specific IT program. Advanced Standing is based on academic credits (certificate/diploma/degree) completed from a recognized public institution within the past ten years that meet the academic requirements of the full first year of the program. Advanced Standing is subject to seat availability.
    • The first year of each IT program is not interchangeable. For example, completion of year-one IT Programming does not qualify for Advanced Standing in year-two IT Data Analytics. Year 1 learning outcomes must be met in full to achieve Advanced Standing.
