The Web Programming and Development program introduces the fundamental concepts of building web applications and providing comprehensive coverage of both client-side and server-side development. Students will receive the skills and knowledge to build engaging, interactive user experiences on the web as a front-end web developer. By the end of this course, students will have knowledge, confidence, and skills to be entry-level to junior-level web developers in today’s job market.
After 9 months of classroom instruction, students will need to complete an externship. The externship is an extension of the classroom learning where students are required to complete 240 hours either through a full-time (38-40 hours per week) or part-time (18-20 hrs per week) schedule.

"I was nervous about learning to code. The instructors at MTECH were actually working as programmers themselves and so really knew their stuff. Best move I ever made"
- Lisa Horton
“Our exciting collaboration with MTECH has provided Xactware with highly skilled interns and employees.”
– Jim Evans, Chief Operating Officer, Xactware
"The Web Development program was a life changing experience. I had taken some programming classes at a University, but it wasn’t until I came to MTECH that what I had learned really came together. The instructors were phenomenal. MTECH prepared me to be successful and today it allows me to financially support my family. Signing up for MTECH was one of the best decisions I ever made."
