Web Development: Shaping The Way We See The Web Today

Web development is a growing occupation, so if you’re looking for a career in computer science that offers challenge and plenty of opportunity for growth, earning a Web Development Certificate from Washington Technical Institute might be the pathway for you.

Web developers build and manage websites for employers and clients using programming languages such as HTML and JavaScript. They code websites and web applications on both the front-end and back-end of the process. Front-end work refers to the parts of the website or web application that people generally see, while the back-end of a website refers more to the side of things that people don’t see, like running tests on code to make sure everything works properly. Web developers are expected to communicate clearly with clients to make sure they’re addressing the client’s needs, and they need to be able to cooperate and communicate with team members to complete projects by their deadlines. 

According to Indeed, web development job opportunities can vary greatly depending on the job description or project. Some tasks might require optimizing security on a site, while others might require you to do routine audits and maintenance of the site. Although you can specialize, being able to address a variety of problems or projects is the best route in this field.

Job Outlook

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that between 2020 and 2030 the field of web development and digital design is going to grow at a 13%, a rate that’s faster than the national average. If you’re looking for a new career or a career change that offers stability moving forward into the future, this area can certainly provide that.

Median Pay 

The median pay for web developers is about $77,200 for applicants with an associates or bachelor’s degree. However, because the need for web developers is significantly greater than the number of web developers to fill those spots, coding camps and certificate programs are a great way to enter the field quickly rather than working through a two- or four-year program. WTI’s Web Development Certificate offers bi-weekly starts and can get you ready to apply for job on your new career pathway within 8 months.


Washington Technical Institute’s Web Development Certificate can be completed in 8 months, with programs starting every two weeks.  Such flexible start dates makes this program unique and accessible for our students. An additional benefit of WTI’s programs is that we offer affordable pricing and monthly payments to help our students leave school without debt. 

Although our goal is to help our students graduate their programs with little to no debt, we also recognize that some students might need to utilize a loan for their educational investment. We are excited to announce our partnership with Climb Credit, a student lending company focused on financing career-building programs.
