Web Development

Software developers with the skills to create web applications are in high demand.

This degree program teaches students to write code using a variety of tools and programming languages, such as Java, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SQL, Node.JS, React, jQuery, WordPress, and more. The program focusses heavily on programming fundamentals, so that graduates are well prepared for a career in a rapidly changing industry. Our Associate of Applied Science in Web Development will train you to develop both the front-end and back-end of websites. Front-end development focuses on creating the part of web sites and applications that the user sees and interacts with in the web browser. Back-end development deals with the parts that the user doesn’t see, such as the updates, connections, and database storage on the server where the site is hosted. Together, front-end and back-end skills combine to allow you to create “full-stack” web applications.

The program also offers two certificates, which students can complete while working towards the associate degree. We offer certificates for “Front-End Developer” and “Full-Stack Developer”. The courses required for the certificates can all be applied to the associate degree. Therefore, most student will opt to complete them along the way.

Students planning to transfer to a college or university should check with a Collin College Program Advisor prior to beginning the program, as this program combines both transfer and workforce courses.
