Overview

User experience design aims at solving the end user’s problem by designing products, services, events, systems, and environments with a focus on delivering a delightful product experience where it’s cultural and contextual relevance are most important.

Bachelor of Design (B. Des) in the User Experience Design Program offers the learners to understand various approaches, processes, and systems to address human needs by creating solutions for industry-specific requirements, the betterment of health, and social life. At every stage, the emphasis is on learning-by-doing and following comprehensive user research by using appropriate tools and techniques for understanding needs and gap analysis. Few courses are technical wherein the students are given hands-on training on visual design prototyping tools and coding using software to create prototypes of their solutions and conduct usability testing to validate the effectiveness of their proposed solution.

The main courses taught are Visual Interface Design, UX Design Methods, User Study, Usability Engineering, Tangible Interaction Design, Research Methods, and Techniques. There are conceptual courses like Design for Special Needs and Design for 2050 in which emerging trends for Design Futures, Speculative Design, Universal Design, and Inclusive Design are explored.

The graduating students have opportunities to work in Industries based on Artificial intelligence, Augmented reality, virtual reality, Internet of Things, Gaming, software, Mobile, Automobile UX,..and many more.
