In preparing this programme, the Department of Computing contacted over twenty ICT graduate employers in respect of this proposal and who have issued specific letters of support for the proposal. In addition to the support of the Dublin Regional Skills Forum, specific feedback has been obtained from these organisations. All have identified a need for upskilling existing staff in Web Application Development.

This programme is structured around a vertical element in existing programmes focused on web design and development. It builds a foundation from first year software development, analysis and design principles up through client and server side web development. Which are second and third year modules. Javascript will be the key language used for delivery of Software elements of the programme.

Those completing the programme will have thorough grounding in Web Application Development from Client and Server side perspective. Added value will be the expertise gained from Systems analysis and Design approaches as well automated Software Quality and Test processes. In addition those completing the programme will deliver a project incorporating all aspects of the programme which will also provide a portfolio showpiece for their career.
