Information Technology-Interactive Web Design, AAS-T

Associate in Applied Science-Transfer (AAS-T)

Information Systems Technologists work with businesses, governments, and other organizations that use computer hardware and software every day. They provide day-to-day support for users. They make sure all parts of a computer system work to meet the organization’s goals. They use their strong communications skills to help and work with a variety of people within an organization.

The AAS-T in Interactive Web-design prepares graduates to obtain employment and become a productive Information Technology Professional in a business-oriented systems environment specializing in front-end web page development. Students will use a variety of tools and industry best practices to plan, design, and build web pages that support business goals. Students study and practice elements of good user interface designs and the overall user experience. Graduates are prepared for entry-level software development or web development positions in business-oriented environments, or for the BAS-IS program. 

With one of OC’s five IT AAS-T degrees, students can transfer directly into the Olympic College Bachelor of Applied Science in Information Systems (BAS-IS) program. The Evergreen State College also offers its “Upside Down” transfer option to students completing any of the five degrees. Students planning to transfer should work closely with an advisor at the baccalaureate institution before finalizing their education plan.
