We ensure that you stay ahead of the curve
At Internet Academy we take great pride in being the first training institute in the industry to be certified as a W3C Member Company. W3C, or the World Wide Web Consortium, is an international organisation that is responsible for defining Global Standards for Web Development Technologies. Our constant communication and interaction with this organisation allows us to always keep our curriculum up to date and relevant.
W3C: Creating a Web of Technology
W3C is an international community where Member Organisations, a full-time staff, and the public, work together to develop Web standards for tech-based companies related to Big Data, Automotive, Security and Privacy, Web and TV, Web Payments, Mobile & Telecommunications, Digital Publishing and Accessibility, amongst others.
W3C and Internet Academy
The W3C operates out of four host institutions, namely - Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the USA, Keio University in Japan, the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM) in France, and Beihang University in China.
Currently, an Internet Academy lecturer is stationed as a Visiting Researcher at a W3C host institution and is actively engaged in W3C discussions and technological efforts. Our collaboration with the W3C ensures our grasp of the newest information and standardisation efforts in the Web field. We use this to keep our curriculum relevant and up-to-date.
