The Internet has become all-pervasive to the extent that many businesses now need an Internet presence to be successful. With this in mind, there are certain key competencies in the development of Web Applications that should be expected of all IT graduates. The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has recognised this by making web development one of the core (required) units in its new Bachelor of IT degree. This paper includes a literature review of web development courses; it discusses the necessary skills and knowledge required of web developers; and it explains the innovative features of web development as it is taught at QUT.
