UX Design

CERT - Occupational Certificate

User experience (UX) designers focus on the interaction that users have with products, like websites, apps, and physical objects. They make those everyday interactions useful, enjoyable, and accessible.

Program Purpose

UX designers combine market research, product development, strategy, and design to create seamless user experiences for products, services, and processes. They build a bridge to the customer, helping the company to better understand—and fulfill—their needs and expectations.

  • Demonstrate the basics of UX Research, like planning research studies, conducting interviews and usability studies, and synthesizing research results.
  • Apply foundational UX concepts, like user-centered design, accessibility, and equity-focused design.
  • Create a professional UX Portfolio that includes three end-to-end projects: a mobile app, a responsive website, and a cross-platform experience.
