UX/UI Design, BA*

User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) design is one of the most popular fields in today’s creative industries. As a result of talented designers and researchers, UX/UI-design technology, data and services are becoming more accessible and more enjoyable than ever. Since many products are similar, the key to achieving success in UX and UI design is to focus on users and their experience. How a user interacts with an application, service or product makes a huge difference.

The interdisciplinary programme in UX/UI offers students an understanding of topics including user experience, visual interface design functionality, techniques and services. The course focuses on the complex field of emotional interaction between humans, technical devices and interfaces. Become part of our fascinating broad UX/UI approach and help shape the digital future.
