AAS-T Degree in Web Application Programming Technology (Web Emphasis)

The Associate in Applied Science Degree is a technical transfer degree in Web Application Programming Technology. It prepares students for a career as a web developer. The degree provides an emphasis on either programming or web technologies. Web application developers design, create, and test new applications, beginning by analyzing client or project requirements. During development they act as skilled problem solvers and clear communicators.

Web application programmers work in cross-functional teams; design and create user interfaces; write client and server code conforming to industry standards; utilize development frameworks, web services, and databases; accurately estimate their time-on-task; manage their portion of a project; and clearly document their work.

Upon successful completion of this degree a student will be able to:

  • Apply critical thinking and logical reasoning to design and technical problems in web development generally, with a focus on their area of emphasis
  • Communicate effectively as web development professionals, interacting with clients and collaborating within development teams.
  • Develop solid visual and logical design skills, paying close attention to detail, current standards, application usability, and security
  • Design, produce, and test new web applications to be visually appealing and function effectively to meet users’ needs
  • Assess and select application frameworks and development methodologies appropriate to the particular project scope


Degree Requirements: Total minimum credits required: 90

As with all of our professional and technical transfer degrees, this degree can be earned as a traditional two-year degree or by "stacking" certificates toward the degree. Cascadia's AAS-T degrees include the same collegiate math, English, and human relations courses as the associate degrees that prepare you for transfer to a four-year college.
