As digital transformation drives the integration of technology into nearly every aspect of life, companies require individuals to create compelling front-end experiences that are elegant, intuitive, and achieve their intended goals. Our 24-week UX/UI Bootcamp resembles a digital design studio in which you constantly work on real-problems with tight-deadlines and continuous collaboration. You learn to build evocative, engaging, and user-centric designs. The project-based curriculum includes in-depth training on design principles and exposure to the toolsets of the modern-day UX/UI Designer.

This non-credit program is offered in partnership with Trilogy Education Services (TES). The online application process is handled by TES – applicants should expect a call or other communication from one of their advisors, upon completion of the online application.
