In UX (User Experience), they will engage in design thinking, usability testing, site architecture, user flows, etc. In UI (User Interface) students will use industry-standard tools to style wireframes, high fidelity mockups, and prototypes of web products and apps based on interaction design and aesthetics. Students will gain practical skills and experience in all areas of the UX/UI development process.
