You will work creatively with coding and implementing real projects, while also developing your skills to a professional level.

CONTENT AND STRUCTURE


At the top-up programme in Web Development you will learn how to undertake the design and construction of web applications of all sizes. You will be working creatively with coding, creating realistic projects while you improve your development and programming skills to a professional level.

During the course of your studies you will be in close contact with the business community and you will, for example, write papers in cooperation with a business. You will also be an intern in a business in which you can try out your competencies in practice. We cooperate with a large number of businesses.

The programme consists of the following courses:

Web Programming and Network

This module is currently based on C# and Visual Studio 2010, where we build and extend an ecommerce web project based on sample code from the course literature. The web shop is built using the ASP.Net MVC Framework.

Development Environments and CMS

Expanding on knowledge from the module “Web Programming and Network”, certain aspects of known ecommerce solutions are implemented in a CMS built on top of the ASP.Net MVC Framework. This enables the reuse of concepts previously taught, while adapting and changing these to accommodate a larger framework setting and customizing the solution to fit the CMS in question.

XML and Databases

The relational model or XML as an integrating part in a web application.

Interface Design and Digital Aestethics

The connection between functionality and design, enabling rich client-side interaction through the use of javascript and javascript libraries like jQuery and Prototype.

ELECTIVE SUBJECTS


In addition to the mandatory parts of the programme, two subjects are offered each semester from the electives package, which you, depending on the combination of subjects, can specialise within, for example: Project Management, Quality Assurance, Mobile Platforms, Advanced Media Technologies.

INTERNSHIP

10 week internship at a company of the student’s choice, where there will be further opportunity to develop the skills needed in the industry and apply theory to practice. During the internship, one of the lecturers will function as mentor for the student, and the student will produce a set of learning goals and an internship diary.

Your internship advisor at KEA will help you with any practical questions concerning your internship with a host company which you must find yourself.

STUDY FORM


When you study web development, you will participate in an intense learning environment.

You will spend your days in our newly renovated premises that are specially designed for this form of study. There are work stations and meeting facilities where you can work on projects alone, with your fellow students on Web development or perhaps together with the building’s other education, Computer Science. Together you will produce products and concepts like in a bureau.

There are also lectures where you will receive tuition in the theory and methodology of the subject. The teachers will also coach you in your projects.

In this way, the tuition and practical work will be integrated.
