Course Description

User Experience (UX) Design is a design process intended to create products and services that provide positive experiences to users. It is an emergent field that has seen strong growth in recent years across a broad spectrum of industries in Alberta. Through hands-on learning experiences, you will explore design and psychological fundamentals, the application of UX tools, and the human-centered design process by which user interactions and needs are identified and integrated into products.
