Overview

The Bachelor of Design – User Experience program is broadly focused on UX design, meeting an increasing demand for designers who are prepared to design for how people use technology daily. Blending design thinking and practical UX process and deliverables, the program develops designers who can critically engage with our rapidly changing technological world.

The program emphasizes a people-first approach, applying principles of human-centred design and research to solve problems. With an emphasis on social responsibility, students are encouraged to demonstrate curiosity, resilience and empathy for end-users to find creative solutions to the many challenges faced in modern technological culture.

This innovative interdisciplinary, collaborative and project-based learning program prepares students to join the challenging design world for the experience economy. Courses are developed in collaboration with industry partners to develop advanced capabilities in design tools and methods, communications, user interface design (UI), visual literacy, digital technology, qualitative research, creativity and innovation, interaction design, and service design.

The program applies evidence-based design and research methods to services and digital projects, including websites, apps, VR/AR/MR, Voice UI and other emerging interfaces. Projects extend across corporate, not-for-profit and civic environments.

What is UX Design?

Broadly, UX is the practice of designing digital products, including websites, software, apps, smart devices, voice interfaces and other technology interfaces.

UX Design focuses not only on how things look, but also on how things work. UX Design is a human-centered discipline, based on meeting the needs of the end-users of a product. Some of the goals of UX are to remove frustrations and barriers to technology, and simplify our interactions with systems. UX Designers create technology products that are user-friendly, enjoyable, and meaningful; and ultimately develop solutions that drive social change.
