about the web design program


The first step to creating effective websites is to learn the coding languages that tell a browser what to display on a user’s screen. Our learning path covers HTML5, CSS, JavaScript and front-end web design and development basics. While there are many ways to create websites with drag-and-drop templates, employers expect professional web designers to be fluent in coding languages to create custom-built websites and web-based applications.

The program flows at a pace determined by each individual participant, but to get the most from the experience, this program is designed to be completed within 6-10 weeks.


what you’ll learn


Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the default file format for web documents. You’ll need to know HTML to add information and different types of content to a website.

~ 35 hours



Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) tell web browsers how to display fonts, colours, shapes and even animations. This language adds the element of style to the information on your website.

~ 17 hours



You’ll be able to write front-end client side code, back-end code for servers, or ever develop games, with JavaScript, the most widely-deployed programming language in the world.

~ 26 hours
