Course Summary

This programme takes graduates from many disciplines and provides them with the skills to plan, design, build and promote effective websites. It is designed for people who manage corporate websites, those who wish to start their own web business and those who would like to build a career in the web design industry. The design of excellent websites presents a notable intellectual challenge and, during the programme, students develop a contemporary, professional and real-world approach. Our objective is to provide a balanced education in the three main aspects of web design: technical, functional and aesthetic.

The aims of the programme are to: equip students with a professional level of competence in web design and content management; provide students with the opportunity of creating a live website and to measure its success; help students become familiar with the growing and fast-evolving body of knowledge within the web design discipline.

Students are assessed through coursework, a portfolio of project work and their involvement with online activities. This programme offers enhanced skills for use within the applicant's current career or a new career in web design. Graduates from this programme are now working as front-end developers, user experience designers, SEO consultants and project managers in digital media.
