Web Technologies, A.A.S.

Today's web developers have a huge audience for their work, thanks in large part to the Internet, as well as numerous employment possibilities. The various applications of the World Wide Web are limited only by human creativity. Email gave way to instant messaging and social networking. Early e-commerce led to online banking and trading. Where once it took minutes for a single picture to load onto a Web site, today you can watch TV and movies online and download DVDs. The driving force behind all of these advances is Web application developers, who are responsible for all technical aspects of a Web site.

Johnson County Community College's Web Technology program focuses on "real world"/hands-on and interactive learning. Web developers fuel the Internets explosive growth by identifying and developing new applications for the Web, as well as refining existing uses, making Internet use simpler and more seamless. Web developers make the Web interface perform as it was designed and intended.

Associates of Applied Science in Web Technology program prepares students for current software and industry practices, application development specifically for the World Wide Web and applications for the mobile web. The core courses provide a broad foundation of software and industry skills. Students can then use the elective courses to tailor their AAS degree and develop their portfolio for specific work areas such as web programming, rich media applications, and mobile web applications. This program prepares students for entry-level positions and/or preparation for transfer to a four-year degree program at a college or university.

Graduates may work as Web Developers, Web Developer Consultants, Rich Media Applications Developers, Mobile Web Technologists/Developers, Web-based Game Developers, Smart Phone Application Developers, E-Commerce Developers, and entrepreneurs. Graduate's employment opportunities include a wide range of companies that are interested in using the Internet to market and/or sell their products and services or companies that provide Web development and
maintenance as a contracted service.
