Information technology (IT) workers can be found in many types of organizations. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, "In the modern workplace, it is imperative that Information Technology (IT) works both effectively and reliably."1
One area of information technology is web development. Few innovations have impacted the world of business as much as the Internet and the digital sharing of information and commerce. Maintaining business websites, from intranets to globally accessible sites, requires people who can keep each site's information current and secure.
As a web developer, you could be working on a team that develops websites and web applications. An education that emphasizes web development can help you develop knowledge and skills to use scripting and graphic tools to design and develop websites and applications, and maintain and update websites. If you're organized and able to work well with others, web development is an IT area you might like to pursue.
The Information Technology - Web Development program in the School of Information Technology at ITT Technical Institute teaches students how to perform tasks associated with designing, creating and maintaining websites. Through classroom theory and laboratory applications, students are exposed to information on how to author with appropriate coding tools, web application of database technology and other related technical subjects. This program can help graduates begin careers in a variety of entry-level positions in various fields involving IT and web development. These may include such positions as web administrator, web applications developer, web/software developer and website developer.
