If you are thinking of making a career in User Experience Design, our UX Design Diploma is just what will help you. Diploma in User Experience Design (DUXD) is your road-map to the world of research, design and development of valuable products for the users. We used our extensive knowledge on User Experience and put it all together into a comprehensive syllabus that is designed to help you meet your career goals. Our year long course will build the basics of your design thinking process and get you prepped up for working in real jobs.
The curriculum for the UX Design Diploma course is divided into three trimesters as follows:
Design is an ever expanding field and one has to be accustomed to face the changes that occur from time to time. We believe that having a strong base plays an important role in coping with the changes. So we start by teaching the students the very basic fundamental of design, which is free-hand drawing. Once a student is able to sketch, we start with teaching them about colour and typography. They are taught colour theory, the principles of typography and their appropriate use in the context of solving design problems. Next comes the elements and principles of design. The goal here is to teach you how to strike a balance between visual design and effective communication. Throughout the trimester, students are encouraged to question and carry out researches that will help them with the ideation process.
Interaction Design is an important part of user experience as it is how we communicate with our end users. In this trimester, students are taught the basics of User experience design and how to apply it while designing interactions & interfaces. A lot of emphasis is given on carrying out user research and creating user interfaces that support their research findings. Students are expected to choose a real world problem for their thesis project during this trimester and start working on it. They are taught how to carry out card sorting, hold focus group discussions and take contextual interviews. Students are shown the importance of parallel design and how it helps us to come up with an effective design.
Here students are taught about usability, its principles, how to carry out heuristic evaluation and most important of all, how to make your design accessible. In order to equip the students with all the required skills of a UX Designer, students are taught Content Design & Development along with Front End engineering for the web.
Students will be required to complete a compulsory 4 months internship. Here they will learn to apply everything they learned during their Diploma in real world projects.
Students who have passed HSC/A-Levels or equivalent examination are eligible for enrollment.
