ART INSTITUTE OFFERS NEWLY RENAMED WEB DESIGN & INTERACTIVE MEDIA DEGREE PROGRAM

(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire teaches “Web standards” – the guidelines for building Web sites that are defined by the governing body of the Web, The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These standards foster best practices in Website development that serve both users and businesses (see http://webstandards.org).

According to Michael Swank of The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire’s Web Design & Interactive Media program says, “Our grads are entering the workforce as advisors to the industry. Web standards are a critical initiative from our standpoint that our students need to know as they develop Websites more efficiently, make maintenance more practical and improve search engine optimization.”

There is good news for those searching for jobs in the technology field in the months ahead. Continued business expansion and increasing investments in technology are driving demand for skilled IT professionals across North America. In fact, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that some IT-related positions are expected to be among the fastest growing occupations through 2014.

“Employment is expected to grow faster than average as organizations continue to adopt and integrate increasingly sophisticated technologies. Job increases will be driven by very rapid growth in computer systems design and related services, which is projected to be one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. economy.” (http://bls.gov/oco/ocos042.htm#outlook).
