Websites have evolved significantly over time from tools to publish information, to highly complex sites with various service functions and where more and more functionality can be found. Because of the complexity of most websites the development work has been divided between two types of functions which have generated two types of professionals: front-end and back-end web developers.
The front-end developer is the bridge connecting the designer and back-end developer. The developer’s work is to take the final designs of an application from the designer, and code it into the front-end code so the back-end developer can understand it and build functionality around it.
Starting Spring Quarter 2019, we will be offering a newly realigned Specialized Certificate in Front End Development. The new course offerings are current and relevant. The updated format now includes two elective tracks for Front End Engineers and Web Designers. Building on the information from the core courses, these new elective options will provide for a robust and effective program.
The modifications made reflect feedback from our Advisory Board which includes industry experts, as well as market research, and input from instructors and students.
If you are a current student in the Specialized Certificate in Front End Web Development, the previous required courses will continue to be offered for a few quarters based on demand to help you complete your current certificate requirements. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com
We are excited about these certificate program changes and look forward to continuing to provide an excellent educational experience in the web development and design areas.
