FROM ZERO TO UX DESIGNER IN 12 WEEKS

During the 12-week User Experience Design Bootcamp, you take a deep dive into the world of UX Design and get ready for the rapidly growing UX job market to become a UX Designer. We combine lectures by expert practitioners, hands-on workshops and project work where you design (or re-design) user experiences in groups and on your own. You leave this course with a state of the art toolkit, which allows you to create frictionless, user-friendly and aesthetically compelling 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.

TO WHOM THE BOOTCAMP IS ADDRESSED

This Bootcamp is designed for max. 20 students who want to learn the best ways to design an outstanding user experience for their customers. You are probably already working in graphic or print design, digital media, product development or design, product management, web development or engineering? Even though previous working experience in those fields is an advantage, it is not a prerequisite. The only requirement is a strong desire to analyze and design experiences of using products and services. If this fits with your profile, you are the person we are looking for!

GUARANTEED AND PAID INTERNSHIP

As a student of the Ux Design Bootcamp, you will access a guaranteed paid internship for six months at one of our partner companies – the best in the Austrian tech ecosystem – to learn on the job, completing your training path.
You are also guaranteed a Lifelong Placement Service – as a member of the alumni network of the Talent Garden Innovation School, you will remain in constant contact with the best companies in the national and European territory, who are looking for professionals with your profile.

5 SCHOLARSHIPS FOR 20 SEATS
