Web and Multimedia Technology

In Web and Multimedia Technology courses, students learn about the planning, production and development of professional-level web sites. Students learn visual design strategies as well as programming practices for creating interactive web applications.

See the HCC student webserver and check out all the student projects. This site is for all students enrolled in web design classes where projects are posted.

If you're interested in classes, we offer podcasts of all the web classes for free. You can download Mp3 files or listen via iTunes.

Career Options: This program has a dual focus: visual design and software development. Typically web designers and web developers work for a company, university, or nonprofit organization. Many are also free lancers or own their own small business. Experience is a necessity for our students so our internship program places students with local web design companies in their final semester. The program has a strong emphasis on building the student's portfolio so they are ready for their first interview upon graduation. More information on the current state of careers in web design including salary, work weeks and benefits can be found at A List Apart.

Career Outlook: According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook (2010-11), projected software engineer positions are expected to increase by 32% in the next eight years; growth far above other career fields. Graphic designer positions with a web and multimedia focus are expected to increase by 13% by 2018.
