Course Description

Further Web Programming provides a range of enabling skills for independent development of small-scale industry standard web applications. These skills will equip you to be ready for commercial development and to meet the demand of small to medium sized organisations such as start-ups, small businesses, and other ventures. 

Emphasis is placed on the processes, tools and frameworks required to develop applications for current and emerging web platforms. 

In addition, you will learn industry level development methodologies as well as selected software engineering patterns such as Event Driven Programming. Through practical work, you will encounter a variety of real-world scenarios. 

Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development


Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  1. Explain the fundamental challenges and opportunities of working with and developing web applications;
  2. Demonstrate proficiency with a web application development framework;
  3. Implement a range of techniques and procedures for developing a small to medium-scale web application;
  4. Demonstrate knowledge of and utilise software engineering patterns in development;
  5. Design and manage the development lifecycle of a complete application.

Overview of Learning Activities

You will be actively engaged in a range of learning activities such as lectorials, tutorials, practicals, laboratories, seminars, project work, class discussion, individual and group activities. Delivery may be face to face, online or a mix of both.

You are encouraged to be proactive and self-directed in your learning, asking questions of your lecturer and/or peers and seeking out information as required, especially from the numerous sources available through the RMIT library, and through links and material specific to this course that is available through myRMIT Studies Course
