Careers and Employment

The Web Design Certificate prepares students for entry-level web design/maintenance jobs.

Web developers are responsible for website creation. Using software languages and tools, they create applications for the web. They identify a site’s users and oversee its production and implementation. They determine the information that the site will contain and how it will be organized. Some of these workers may be responsible for the visual appearance of websites. Using design software, they create pages that appeal to the tastes of the site’s users.

Webmasters or web administrators are responsible for maintaining web sites. They oversee issues such as availability to users and speed of access, and are responsible for approving the content of the site. Webmasters also collect and analyze data on web activity, traffic patterns and other metrics, as well as monitor and respond to user feedback.
