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 usability and user-centered design.

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