About this program

UX/UI Design (B.A.)

Create engrossing user experiences and cutting-edge user interfaces for digital products and services and acquire one of the most sought after skill-sets of the tech industry.

As a user experience (UX) designer, your goal is to make interaction with technology more accessible, meaningful and pleasant for human users. Alternatively, as a user interface (UI) designer, you create the systems and artifacts which facilitate this interaction by employing a combination of visual, oral and haptic design solutions.

UX/UI designers straddle the disciplines of cognitive sciences, market research, emerging technologies, product development and design to create seamless experiences for mostly digital products, services and processes. They are curious about human behavior and how design can improve the tech experience for customers in an ever more complex world.

Studying UX/UI at the University of Europe for Applied Sciences will provide you with a highly dynamic and interdisciplinary education in one of the creative industries’ most relevant areas. You will acquire hands-on knowledge of your discipline through collaboration with industry partners and practical experiences. Our major/minor option will allow you to further tailor your professional profile by combining your core discipline with range of specializations options such as in creative computing or product management.

Our university focuses on your development. That's why we teach in small learning groups and in a friendly and personal atmosphere. We’ll oversee your individual development process and help you define your talents and strengths, while helping you develop your own visual signature. You will be taught by renowned lecturers from the industry and study at a campus that is located in a technical and creative surrounding.
