2014/15 Program

Web Design, Development and Maintenance

Our Program

Humber’s unique project-based approach leads participants through the entire web design and development process – including the creation of rich-media online applications. Students build static and dynamic websites utilizing the most current versions of industry-standard applications and tools: Dreamweaver, Flash, Photoshop and Illustrator. Students will also learn programming and scripting languages that drive the web, such as: Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), PHP/MySQL, ActionScript, JavaScript and jQuery.

Through various projects, students will gain experience in the development of websites using technologies ranging from basic HTML5 and CSS3 (Cascading Style Sheets), to sites that use dynamic content and templates that can be updated by a client through a CMS (Content Management System).

ActionScript apps are created that utilize dynamic content and streaming media. In addition, AJAX and HTML5/JavaScript-based websites and applications are developed as part of the program. Finally, with the growth of the mobile web and the availability of hundreds of different mobile devices, all websites are designed following the Responsive Design paradigm to meet the needs of mobile users.

The web design training wraps up with students presenting their professional portfolios to faculty, peers and industry professionals.

This program is not Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) eligible. Class size is limited to 30 students, so apply early.
