User Expe­ri­ence (UX) Design and User Inter­face (UI) Design are the two sides of user-cen­tred design, an emer­gent field that has seen rapid growth over the past few years. UX explores what it means to be user-cen­tred, while UI oth­er exam­ines how users inter­act with­in a space. Both require skills in design think­ing, research, and work­ing with diverse teams and stakeholders.

Aimed at learn­ers look­ing to get into the design fields of User Expe­ri­ence (UX) and User Inter­face (UI), upskill, or devel­op new skills, this pro­gram will be par­tic­u­lar­ly rel­e­vant to those who are graph­ic design­ers, dig­i­tal mar­keters, com­put­er pro­gram­mers, busi­ness and agency own­ers, entre­pre­neurs, and tech­nol­o­gy star­tups, as well as man­agers and team leads who work with designers.

Whether you are new to the field or have an exist­ing back­ground in design, you will ben­e­fit from learn­ing direct­ly from indus­try lead­ers about cur­rent approach­es and tools, as well as keep­ing up-to-date with the most recent trends.
