Jump in and learn: The Web Design program at NCC is a specialized diploma program geared toward students who are ready to jump in and experiment with hands-on Apple computer labs, high-speed Internet and the most up-to-date software programs for design and development. By utilizing programs such as Dreamweaver, Flash, Photoshop, Image-ready and Illustrator, web design students will obtain a working knowledge of all aspects of site development and learn to balance both the content and quality concerns with those of e-commerce.
Experienced instructors teach writing, coding and creating graphics, developing and organizing content, building the structure of the site, and assisting with interface issues. Professional web designers also visit the lab to observe and critique. By the time the program is finished, students will have completed their own fully-functional web site that implements animation, video, sound and interactivity. The emphasis is on sending career-ready certificate holders into the working world; students will be ready to prepare aesthetically-pleasing, informative and useful sites for clients.
