Day and evening courses are available. All courses will be delivered remotely for Spring 2021.



The purpose of this course is to teach the student the principles and concepts of designing and creating WEB pages in an HTML5 format. The course is designed to expose the student to the constructs of HTML5 tags and the responsive design techniques for page banners, images, tables, navigation menus, in-page articles, and footer sections that are available with the advent of HTML5. Additionally the course will teach the student the utilization of dynamic graphics, lists, and background image control. Also included will be content created in Photoshop for the purpose of inclusion as a stand-alone image or as a background image in a web site. The course will explore the requirements, tools and controls used in WEB page development by lecture, in-class practical exercises, and home study exercises.

CMT-113 JavaScript

This course teaches students the concepts and practical application of JavaScript programming language as a WEB authoring tool. Students learn to program WEB pages to perform such tasks as forms and form validation, image swapping, auto-scrolling text, browser detection and control and time and date extraction and conversion. The course explores designing and developing JavaScript functions using iteration loops, conditional statements, switch statements, parameter passing, location redirection, in-line JavaScript and remote access JavaScript utilization.


This course introduces the student to writing Extensible Markup Language documents for the Web, using custom markup tags, Cascading Style Sheets and Extensible Style Language Style Sheets. Students will create a Document Type Definition (DTD) for validating their documents with an XML parser. Students will also learn how to transform XML documents into other formats for computers that are not capable of viewing XML format documents.

CMT-125 Cascading Style Sheets

This course will cover the incorporation of modern web design controls for the formatting, placement, dynamics, interactive functionality, and animation web page content with CSS. CSS is the primary technology in use today in the fast paced world of web design and is used to present web content in a standardized manner that far exceeds the capabilities of the HTML language. CSS is in use in almost every one of the millions of web pages published in today's world and is a multi-browser, multi-language coding technology. CSS is found at all levels of the web design process and lends itself to being incorporated as an in-line component, and embedded component, and a remote component on every HTML, JavaScript, XML,, PHP, and Ruby page written. It is prevalent and used in IE Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla, Safari, Opera, and Netscape browsers. CSS can be used to create a myriad of functions from the simple coloring of text content to the dynamics of drop-down expandable menus to the inclusion of voice content. It is a technology that has rapidly replaced the traditional name-pair attribute coding scheme of the previous web design technology.

CMT-225 jQuery

This course will provide the student a solid foundation in the use and application of the JavaScript layer known as jQuery. jQuery is an advanced form of JavaScript which provides real-time dynamic effects and multi-functional tasks on a client-side application. jQuery is often viewed in modern web design is a dynamic menu or a dynamic special effect such as a photographic slide show. jQuery is also used to traverse and manipulate the Document Object Model (DOM) and to create user interfaces for mobile devices.


JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a JavaScript subset text-based standard for exchanging and storing data records. JSON employs data records in a human-readable form across a single domain or across multiple domains. JSON offers a faster method of reading and processing data than XML and is the data format preferred for coding in the AJAX (CMT 5aa) coding language.

CMT-228 Web Design with AJAX

This course will provide the student the syntactical and logical requirements constructing pages using the Ajax programming language. The Ajax programming language is a language that will permit the student to create pages that deliver content in a more rapid and dynamic fashion by updating only those portions of the site that actually change.

CMT-235 Node.js

Node.js is a technology that uses the JavaScript run-time V8 engine developed by Google. The V8 engine compiles and executes JavaScript at lightning speeds on both client and server side operations. Node.js will be used to facilitate reading /writing to network connections, reading/writing to the file system, and reading/writing to a database. All of these tasks can be found in web apps and employing Node.js allows them to execute very rapidly.


PHP/MySQL is a web development programming language that is used to provide dynamic interaction between web content pages and databases. PHP technology permits web developers to retrieve and maintain real-time information for presentation across the web delivery medium. The objectives of this course are to teach the student the skills required to effectively construct real-time web sites for the purposes of e-commerce and real-time information delivery. The student will learn how to design and publish web pages that interact with push/pull actions that interact directly with on-line databases.

CMT-250 Mobile Web Applications
