User-Centered Design Certificate

The User-Centered Design (UCD) Certificate is an evening, graduate-level program in the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) for students who want to explore a wide range of issues in user-centered design. Students learn sophisticated methods for planning and developing intuitive, user-friendly product designs. Students study the latest user research and design theories and practices for placing user needs at the forefront of each stage of the design process.

This four-course certificate focuses on usability studies, user-centered design theories, visual communication and information visualization, and web design.

12 credits of the 13 earned in the UCD Certificate may later count toward the MS in Human Centered Design & Engineering if students apply for Graduate Non-Matriculated Status PRIOR to taking coursework.
