In hands-on simulations, students become a lead Web designer working with three clients to build a website for their respective businesses. Students work with each client in all phases of the process, from planning and layout, to website creation.  This allows students to develop their overall personal qualities and employability skills.  Effective professionals know the academic subject matter, including positive work practices and interpersonal skills, as needed in their role.
