Web Engineering Certificate Offered at PWSC
by Vicki Heisser |
As things start gearing up for the fall semester, Associate Professor of Computer Science and Information Technology, Dr. Steve Johnson took some time to tell us about the Fast Track Career Certificate in Web Engineering that is now being offered online through PWSC. This certificate program can be completed in 2 semesters.
The courses taught for the Web Engineering Certificate will prepare students to fill positions as web designers while increasing their office and administrative skills. Students will become proficient in programming and scripting languages as well as web design skills.
Dr. Johnson explained that this Fall’s offerings will consist of three base courses in Web Engineering: HTML, Data Base, and Compiling Programming Languages. A fourth class course being offered this semester is the first course in a new Digital Publications track that covers social media and creating professional digital documents. This course teaches the professional use of Microsoft Office.
Businesses today communicate with their customers primarily through networking or digital communication. A digital presence like Facebook or a website where people can go for information has become an important component of advertising for all businesses. Every business needs somebody to do that work, to manage social media and the web presence. The point to the digital publications and web engineering tracks are to prepare Alaskans to meet the workforce needs within our state.
This fast track career certificate derived from the Alaska Tech Learners (ATL) program, which consists of high-school dual-enrollment courses. ATL is a National Science Foundation (NSF) project and grant under the Advanced Technological Education Directorate.
