The Human Centered Design & Engineering Undergraduate Student Association (HCDE SA) is a registered student organization founded and operated by undergraduate HCDE students.
The HCDE SA was first established in 2009 with the mission of fostering a sense of community within the department by providing opportunities for socializing and professional networking.

Hi! I’m Uzair and I’m a senior in HCDE. I enjoy going to concerts, traveling, and reviewing food on my food Instagram. My goal this year is to provide social and professional opportunities for all aspiring designers, PMs, SWEs and more. HCDE is such a diverse major and there is something for everyone in the department. I’m so excited to meet everyone, feel free to reach out and say hello!

Hi everyone! My name is Jessica and I'm a rising HCDE senior, minoring in Business, Informatics, and Data Science. I was born in Washington but grew up in Taiwan and Shanghai. Coming into UW, I was originally planning on studying computer engineering but discovered my passion for product design! Outside of school, you'll find me playing volleyball, trying to code new interactions, working on design jams, or traveling in Asia!
