FROM ZERO TO UX DESIGNER IN 12 WEEKS

During the 12-week User Experience Design Bootcamp you will dive deep into the world of UX design and get ready for the fast growing job market in this field. We combine lectures by real-world experts, practical workshops and project work, where you will design (and redesign) user experiences in groups and also on your own.

You leave this course with a state-of-the-art toolkit that enables you to create smooth, user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing user experiences for customers and understand their emotional involvement.

WHY PARTICIPATE?

Customers only come back if you offer them high-quality user experiences. After this three month deep dive, you know how to plan a design process that is human-centered. You learn how to perform user research and get to know your target audience – their tastes, preferences and needs – in order to tailor frictionless user experiences. You also become skilled in identifying problem spaces and coming up with creative solutions, so new users convert into regulars.

The learning experience is complemented by a one week trip to one of our European campuses, exclusive informal evening events with guest speakers, hackathons and other challenges and being part of our international TAG community and the exclusive alumni network.

WHO IS THIS BOOTCAMP FOR?

  • You want to change your professional path or to enhance your career opportunities?
  • You want to be ready for the labour market and business challenges of the future?
  • You want to get state-of-the-art skillset and a new perspective in a short period of time?
  • You want to have a job profile that is in high demand?

If you answer one of these questions with yes, then you are the person we are looking for!

This Bootcamp is for a maximum of 20 participants who want to learn how to create an outstanding user experience for their customers.
Perhaps you are already working in graphic or print design, digital media, product development or design, product management, web development or engineering?

Although first work experience in these areas is an advantage, it is not a prerequisite. The only requirement is a strong desire to analyse and design experiences for the use of products and services. If this fits your profile, you are the person we are looking for!
