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 testing, user-centered design theories, visual media, and web design. These courses are designed to be taken in sequence during one academic year and students typically cannot take a term "off" since most classes will not be offered again until the following year.
12 credits of the 13 earned in the UCD Certicate may later count toward the MS in Human Centered Design & Engineering if students apply for Graduate Non-Matriculated Status PRIOR to taking coursework.
