Graduates with a web development and administration specialization may consider the following careers:
- Applications Manager†
An application manager chooses which software applications to use within a company. They have a baseline skill level in IT that enables them to test and choose the right software for the unique needs of their employer.
- Front-end and Back-end Developer
Front-end and back-end developers are both involved in the development of a site. Front-end developers primarily deal with the appearance of a site while back end developers ensure its functionality.
- Web Application Developer
Web application developers, also known as web app developers, are responsible for the development and design of web applications.
- Web Designer
Web designers are primarily responsible for the layout and interface elements of a website or web application. They ensure that sites are visually appealing and intuitive from a UI standpoint.
- Web Master†
Web masters are responsible for ensuring that a site stays up to date and is usable and well-maintained. They often oversee teams of designers and developers when working with larger companies. In the past, web masters were solely responsible for each element of a website, and this is sometimes still true for webmasters at small companies.
†Employment may require additional experience
Skill Focused Curriculum
Elements of the curriculum are aligned to industry certifications to help you validate your knowledge and skills as you prepare to pursue such certification exams as:
