The curriculum for the UX Design Diploma course is divided into three trimesters as follows:

1st Trimester:  Drawing, Graphic & Visual Design

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.

2nd Trimester: User Experience & Interaction Design I

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.

3rd Trimester­: User Experience & Interaction Design II

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.

  • Content Design & Development – Content needs to be designed for effective, sustainable impact. Content plays an important role on how your users will accept your product. Be it a website or a product, the right & meaningful content can make a world of difference. Designing and developing content based on your target audience will be taught here.
  • Front End engineering for web – Includes planning, designing, building & testing of a fully functional website from start to finish. Students will learn to recreate their interface design using HTML and CSS.
