The internet bubble may have burst, but designing for the web is still an extremely lucrative career option. With the increase in internet penetration and the growth of social media, new websites are coming up every day. From start ups and established companies, to celebrities and politicians, nearly everyone and everything has an accompanying website and web designers are in great demand, many being paid handsomely for designing, maintaining, and updating the look and feel of websites.
Hence, a diploma in web design is a much sought after course and programmes are available to suit the needs of everyone – from students who have yet to complete class 12 to college-goers as well as multimedia professionals. Course content also varies from institute to institute. However, any good diploma in web design should include hands on experience of industry software such as Corel, Indesign, Photoshop, Image ready, Adobe Flash and action scripting, web hosting on live servers with FTP, and Adobe Dreamweaver with CSS among others. Hence, a well equipped computer laboratory and useful training materials are an absolute must have. Students can also check on batch sizes, course fees, as well as availability of placements through the institute.
