Learn how to design for people, solve real-world user problems and create winning consumer experiences.

Digital products and services are part of every touchpoint between a business and their customers. By factoring real-world customer problems into your design processes, you can create user experiences that act as a key differentiator in the race towards market share.

The UX Design online short course from the National University of Singapore (NUS) Advanced Computing for Executives (ACE) delves into the fundamental principles of user-centred design. Over six weeks, you’ll explore common design constraints and learn to place the consumer at the front-and-centre of your design decisions.

By applying this theory to practical UX wireframing in Figma, you’ll learn to design a minimum viable product with a focus on usability.

This course is suitable for both budding and experienced designers, developers and individuals who want to strengthen their UX design theory and practical skills.
