Web Development Technology is a two-year program which offers training in website design, e-commerce development, server administration, graphics manipulation, Internet programming, and database integration. Opportunities for students with expertise in web development include state and federal government, corporations, and Internet-based companies.

Certified Internet Webmaster (CIW) certifications from ProsoftLearning validate job-role skills competency for entry-level job seekers and seasoned professionals alike. CIW job roles are based on internationally recognized job-role standards accepted by employers around the world. IT workers in more than 100 countries have earned more than 40,000 CIW certifications since the program’s inception in 1998. As one of the fastest growing IT certifications ever, CIW is accepted and endorsed by governments, employers, and academic institutions.

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College is a CIW Authorized Academic Partner (AAP), which offers official CIW courseware that maps directly to the latest exam objectives and onsite CIW exam sessions. In addition, all CIW courses are taught by CIW Certified Instructors to provide a high-quality learning experience. Upon completion of program, students will take CIW Certification exam.

This curriculum leads to an Associate of Applied Science degree and is preparatory for employment upon graduation from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. Where continued education at a senior college or university is desired, a conference should be scheduled with a program advisor to discuss articulation agreements that allow transfer of college credits into four-year programs.
