This entire programme is taught in English.
Get practical and strategic insights into web technology
With a bachelor in Web Development, you are qualified to work with web technologies within several different fields. You can, for example, work with the development of classic websites, advanced web applications and/or mobile applications. You will work with both the practical and strategic sides of web development.
Become a coordinator for advanced web development projects
In 1½ years, you’ll get the knowledge and tools to qualify you to work with technologies that ensure that you are prepared to enter into many different types of jobs. This could be anything from advanced web development projects, where the products are directed towards many different platforms, to the use of multimedia - audio, video etc. in integrated communication solutions.
Go abroad as part of your degree
You can study, join a summer school or take your internship abroad during the programme.
The Web Development programme consists of six modules, an internship and a Bachelor's project. Each of the first two semesters features three modules, whilst the final and 3rd semester consists of an internship with an IT company and a Bachelor's project, also to be completed in a company.
Your programme will be composed of a transition module and three core modules. The choice of the transition module depends on your qualifying exam. Apart from that, you need to complete two further modules. You may choose among elective modules, adding up to a total of six modules.
1st semester: Web Development
Backend development (10 ECTS)
Frontend development (5 ECTS)
Databases (5 ECTS)
Interaction and experience design (10 ECTS)
2nd semester: Advanced Web Development
Advanced web programming (10 ECTS)
Elective modules (20 ECTS). Examples:
- Mobile development
- XR development - virtual and augmented reality
- Progressive web apps
You will have to choose 2-4 electives - depending on the required hours of the chosen electives.
3rd semester: Web Development in reality
Internship (15 ECTS)
Bachelor's project (15 ECTS)
You are expected to work independently as a large part of the curriculum is learned via work in study groups. The study requires you to take responsibility for your own learning and you must commit and involve yourself in your learning as well as the social environment.
You will spend the first half of the 3rd semester in an internship with a company. The internship will give you the opportunity to apply your theoretical knowledge to practical work, and at the same time, you enhance your chances of gaining quick access to an exciting job. It is your own responsibility to find a company that will take you in, but we will place a large number of contacts at your disposal.
During the second half of the 3rd semester, you have to write your Bachelor's project. The Bachelor's project should be based on a practice-related issue. You must outline the issue for your Bachelor's project in collaboration with an external partner, e.g. the company where you did your internship. Normally, the project is elaborated on in close contact with the company, and you will probably spend most of your time at the company whilst working on the project.

Remember to read the small print
Should a programme, study line or specialisation that you applied for not be offered anyway, you will be contacted directly. The subsequent specialisations we offer will depend on the number of applicants. If there are not enough applicants for both a Danish and an international line, we reserve the right to only offer one.
In the 3rd semester, you will do an internship in a company.
In your internship, you will get to test your newly acquired skills in a company and get insight into future work assignments and career opportunities. You will be able to connect your theoretical knowledge with practical experience and at the same time strengthen your CV.
In the internship, you can test a specific field of work and then focus your programme in relation to your career plans. As part of your internship, you must write a project report which is based on a problem statement from the company. Here, you will have the opportunity to specialise within your specific interests.
The internship is a mandatory part of your programme, and it is your responsibility to find an internship company. To help, we have a wide range of tools and contacts available, e.g. via job and internship portal.
