It’s a web-based world.

The internet is where we go to inform and entertain ourselves. In the Coding, App and Game Design class, you will learn how to create websites that include multimedia and interactive games.

In this two year program, first and second year students work together in teams to develop real projects. Second year students act as project leaders, directing the work and supervising their teams. The environment is designed to make the experience realistically reflect project management in the web design and game development industry. Students learn team building and interpersonal skills to prepare them for leadership roles in their careers. Why just learn how to do the work when you can train to be the boss?

A portfolio is an important tool for getting into a college program or landing a job in this field. Our students develop a web portfolio to showcase the work they do on both gaming and web design projects.
