While the World Wide Web itself remains of enormous importance both from a technological and a societal perspective, subsequent disruptive technologies such as mobile apps and platform independent software applications are also based substantially on the underlying concepts and techniques. This evolution means that software developers as well as other specialists need a thorough understanding of the three main client-side technologies: HTML, CSS, and Javascript. These may be applied to a wide range of areas, including document publishing, website design, user interface development, and web applications. The course caters for the study of web technology, and also prepares students for further investigation in subsequent advanced web technology programming courses.

This course conveys the essential skills and knowledge required to create and maintain high quality web documents and interactive user interfaces. The three main technologies of HTML, CSS, and Javascript are investigated in depth, and application of them to create interactive client-side apps solidifies this knowledge into technical skills. The course will emphasise the generation of accessible and responsive web materials in accordance with relevant industry standards and recommendations.
