The User Experience Design program of Rutgers University trains students in the essential skills needed to design and develop engaging, easily learned, accessible and usable interfaces and interactions, from web sites and mobile apps to new products that blend the web with physical forms.


Design Future Experiences

User Experience and Interaction Design have become rooted in many industries, from cars to travel, as new services and products are developed to respond to technical and social innovation. Students learn up-to-date methods and practices involved in gathering user information, creative designing, interface prototyping and evaluating a wide range of interactive media.

The User Experience Design program of Rutgers University will provide students with a basic understanding of design methods and principles (drawing from human computer interaction, interaction design); the psychology, communication and sociological theories that guides design; plus training in implementing designs (using visual design and programming).

Find Your Design Identity

Portfolio preparation is a key element of the program as are current interface design techniques such as generating personas, working in agile environments, information architecture, card sorting, online usability testing, eyetracking and workflow analysis.
