What will I learn?

User Experience Design has grown from the process of designing the interfaces and interactions for websites and applications. As businesses increasingly focus on user centricity, the role of the User Experience Designer has expanded to researching, developing and designing user interaction over multiple touchpoints with any product, service and experience.

The knowledge and skills required to become an effective User Experience Designer include problem definition, research and analysis, user empathy and problem solving, digital design and coding literacy, interpersonal communication and team collaboration.

Studying a Macleay College Diploma of User Experience Design also provides in-depth focus on:

  • UX and real-world issues
  • Entrepreneurial thinking
  • Design literacy and visual communication
  • Cognition, social and emotional interaction
  • Coding language and relevance
  • Interaction design and user interface frameworks
