The new Web Design program is designed for students wishing to pursue a career in web design, development and sever side technologies. The program provides the practical and technical skills necessary to be successful in the field of web design.
“VCAD maintains close ties with the web design industry to continually assess our curriculum and gain insight to ensure our graduates will meet the needs of the industry,” says Bohdan Bilan, VCAD VP of Academics. “We know that employers want graduates that are knowledgeable about their field and possess fresh, current skills.”
Students in the Web Design program will explore software like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, while working on the latest Mac Pro computers. Each Apple computer system runs two quad-core Intel processors, 12GB of RAM, 3GB video card and 640GB hard drive, which creates a high-tech learning environment for all students.
