Our Program

Humber’s Web Development graduate certificate program focuses on the development of websites and web services for multiple environments, including database-driven programming, content management and mobile services. You’ll work both individually and in teams simulating the real work environment to create commercial websites that apply theories of user-centred design, usability, information architecture, quality assurance testing and responsive design. Project management and presentation skills are key components of the program. Your education will be rounded out through your own experience working on websites that meet business and development requirements.

By the end of the final semester of study, you will develop a personal portfolio of your competencies and have a chance to promote your skills at a portfolio show. All students will gain industry experience through the completion of a seven-week work placement prior to graduation.

Your Career

Canadians have registered 2.1 million dot-ca (.ca) domain names, an impressive achievement that reflects Canada’s position as one of the world’s most wired nations. The Web Development postgraduate program effectively addresses this trend by developing professionals able to create websites that respond to market and technology trends and support organizations’ corporate objectives.

Graduates find full-time and freelance employment as web developers in corporate, small- and medium-sized businesses, government, entertainment, education, health care and the not-for-profit sectors. Graduates work as web developers, creating websites and providing web services, and as advisors on web policies and strategic objectives. Some of our graduates will also establish their own freelance businesses.

Work Placement

The work placement (minimum 245 hours) can be paid or unpaid and takes place in the last seven weeks of the third and final semester. All placements are approved by the program co-ordinator. Students must successfully complete their placement in order to graduate.
