Humber’s accelerated and unique project-based approach leads students in the Web Design, Development and Maintenance certificate program through the entire process of creating websites and web applications. You will build static and dynamic websites utilizing the most current versions of industry-standard applications and tools including Brackets and other code editors, Photoshop, Illustrator, Edge, as well as many others.
You will gain experience in the development of websites using technologies ranging from basic markup and styling, to sites that generate dynamic pages in the form of content management systems (CMS) and other types of web applications. Various online embedded media are explored throughout the program, as well as the animation techniques needed to bring your web creations to life.
In addition to exploring standardized and tested techniques you will also be exposed to other more experimental techniques in preparation for the future of the web. Technologies such as WebGL 3D animation, HTML5 canvas drawing, connecting to various web-based Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), as well as social media integration are among those explored.
You will plan your career and learn some of the project management techniques common within the industry. These planning and documentation skills will be applied in collaborative projects with other students and in individual projects alike. The end result will be several viable portfolio pieces, curated in a portfolio website designed with your own personal brand.
The program ends with students presenting their professional portfolios to faculty, peers and industry professionals in our bi-annual portfolio showcase and networking event.
