Web Programming & Design, BS


About the Program

Before most web sites and mobile applications are launched, there is a vast amount of planning, programming and testing that takes place. When you study web programming and design at Purdue University, you will gain expertise in all aspects of this development process.

Each web and mobile project has its own set of requirements. Will it need to allow financial transactions? Does it need to store and retrieve customer information? How will it operate on different platforms? The courses in the web programming and design major will help you answer those questions and design a final product that is functional, secure, and user-friendly.

From front-end design using HTML5, JavaScript and CSS to back-end Programming using PHP and MySQL or .Net and SQL Server environments, you will gain a broad spectrum of programming capoabilities and concepts that will allow you to prosper and adapt in this constantly changing industry.

Critical Course


The ♦ course is considered critical.

In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major.  Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful.  These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”. 

Disclaimer


The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements.
