The Web Programming and Development Program introduces the fundamental concepts of web applications, 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.
After 9 months of classroom instruction, students are placed with a company for 240 hours of an unpaid 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. 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.
"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.”
