Overview

Whether it’s a smart fridge that stocks itself up online, or a watch that tracks activity, the user experience of digital technology is a reality for every professional designer. As a prospective student of User Experience Design (UXD) at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS), you might already have some initial ideas of how to improve daily lives with technology. UXD takes this one step further and teaches you is to hone your creativity by putting the end user of your product at the forefront of the design process.

How do experiences, emotions, values and goals integrate with technology? This is the very core of User Experience Design (UXD).

We’ll teach you how to design useful products and services based on user behaviour. You could be the next bright engineer who creates a fun algebra app for school kids by tapping into the latest virtual reality technology.

Want ideas like these to pop into your head? Year one will encourage you to focus on the user’s interaction with technology. In year two, you’ll get a deeper grasp of the design process by looking at different product stakeholders. Year three takes a closer look at the social impact of technology before you finish off with your internship and graduation project.

UXD is the three-year English language stream of the Communication and Multimedia Design (CMD) programme. In some courses you’ll work with students from the Dutch four-year Interaction Design (IXD) course.

Career opportunities

After you complete the degree programme and begin working on real assignments, you could be a developer and co-create an entirely new shoe franchise for Converse using the feedback of end users. But as a young professional, you do much more. You’ll discover the culture at your company and what the profession does on a daily basis. You’ll attend meetings and company parties. You’ll also learn all there is to know about your market – the latest developments, the competition and what they do.
