There has never been a better time to learn user experience design than right now. For anyone interested in a career as a UX designer, the employment demand for these skills is at an all-time high and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Learn Both UX & UI Design 

The process of creating the outward-facing appearance of a website or application is referred to as user interface (UI) design, while the process of gathering research and using data to inform design decisions is referred to as user experience (UX) design. In this program, you will learn both. 

What does a UX designer do? 

UX designers are responsible for making sure that the design, features, and functionality of a product satisfy its customers by combining design strategy, testing, and research. 

What does a UI designer do? 

UI designers combine visual and digital design skills with systematic thinking to create the interface of a product, such as the design of a website, application, or touchscreen device.
