Course Description

Certificate Fundamentals of User Experience Design



Explore how the core elements of user experience (UX) design can be used to create more effective, engaging and enjoyable digital media interactions.

What is it?

User experience design uses research, design skills and usability testing to enhance the ways in which a user can interact with a digital product. It involves varied activities, including user research, requirements analysis, user interface and interaction design, prototyping, and user testing. The demand from industry in Ireland for people with these skills has grown in response to the increasing prominence and importance of the field. This course produces skilled and knowledgeable user experience designers to fill this gap.

Application deadline: late August annually

This course opens up a range of opportunities across a number of areas, including: digital development and production, design, project management, digital and online marketing, content management and software development.
