Web Design & Development Programs

Why Choose NPC's Web Design & Development Programs?

With the phenomenal growth of the Internet has come an equally astounding rise in the career fields of Web page design and Web page development. While the major driving force behind Web page expansion has been e-commerce, it is now the rare institution, association, business or group that doesn't have a Web page to tell the world about itself. In this rapidly expanding digital world, those organizations are looking for someone to provide them with polished, professional websites.

Take advantage of this great career opportunity by earning an NPC degree or certificate in either Web design or Web development.

About Our Program

The NPC Computer Information Systems program offers you several options in the ever-growing fields of Web design and/or Web development. Two Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees and two Certificate of Applied Science (CAS) programs have been developed in both areas to help launch your Web career.

The Web development AAS prepares you for tasks ranging from simple page building and web server administration to the methodologies used for systems analyses and design in the increasingly complex world of e-commerce.

For those interested in the world of Web design, the Computer Information System program offers degrees and certificates that meld art design courses with foundational instruction in the technical aspects of Web development.

All design and development degrees and certificates include credit hours devoted to creating your professional portfolio.
