This Program reaches out to a new form of communication that has radically enhanced the way we interact today, The Internet.
Businesses today understand the importance of having a presence in the web, because of the numerous marketing benefits it brings and the potential it offers. With this in mind, CBT College’s Web Designer Diploma program offers an array of applications that includes the Microsoft Office Suite and the Macromedia Web Site Development Suite, which helps the student gain the right knowledge to start a new career in this exciting industry. From creating different types of web layouts, to website navigation, to creating logos, CBT College’s Web Design graduates will use their knowledge in these technologies to create new visual concepts and website solutions for any business in the market today.
While attending school, our students complete a number of web design and multimedia projects, which can be used as a springboard to start the CBT Student portfolio to show potential clients. Unlike traditional portfolios where graphics and photos are displayed on presentation boards, these web designs are showcased on the student’s web site.
The demand for web site designers is high. Many businesses are looking to extend onto the net and many individuals also want to start up their own web pages. Since there are such specialized skills needed to create web pages, many businesses and individuals contract someone to get their site up and running. Because of the high demand, many web site designers are able to work from home and be self-employed. Some career tracks in this field include, web graphic designer, web designer, multimedia web designer, user interface designer, and website architect. Each one of these tracks focuses on a particular aspect of the field.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the outlook for jobs in Web design and multimedia should increase about 15 percent between 2008 and 2016. Many universities and colleges now offer degrees in web development and Web design, which may indicate the growing need for Web designers. The median annual income for entry level Web designers is approximately $40,229 (depending on the area and amount of academic preparation).
