With the continued growth of the tech industry, more and more companies need user experience (UX) designers who have strong portfolios and have the skills to create a user-centred design for their products. Career Foundry’s Certified UX Designer Course helps students of all backgrounds and ages become a UX designer through an intense and hands-on program.
This 10-month-long course teaches students the practical skills that employers look for in UX designers and does away with nonessential information. Students will also have a mentor assigned to them who will guide them throughout the course and help them create a strong portfolio that they can present to potential employers. They will be assigned real-world projects as well and design an entire app from scratch.
The entire course equips students with the basics of UX along with core skills before allowing them to specialise in their area of choice. The following are some of the subjects covered in this comprehensive course:
