The quality of user experience design has emerged as a critical factor in the success or failure of products destined to interact with people, whether they are digital or otherwise. Designers must consider not just functionality, but also how people respond to, and feel about, the products that they use.
This credential provides you with the opportunity to build a personal toolkit of practical skills and knowledge associated with user experience design. Working in project-based experiential learning environments, you will follow creative briefs, both individually and in teams, to design products that answer consumer and industry needs. While demonstrating your ability to integrate design, business and IT elements into products that focus on the human aspect rather than the technologies being utilized, you will also be contributing to your personal e-portfolio. A field placement opportunity will help students gain industry experience.
Graduates may find employment in various corporations such as web solution firms, software companies, start-ups, venture studios, e-commerce, media design companies, banks, insurance, or advertising companies, in positions such as interaction designer, UX/UI designer, frontend developer, digital experience designer, product designer, specialist or web marketing consultant.
