UX Certification

About This Program



UX (User Experience) is a design field that shapes products or services with a holistic approach by aligning end-user needs and business goals. With that in mind, a UX designer’s goal is to properly use various design processes and tools to build products or services that solve real user needs.

This course will introduce you to core UX Design principles. By taking all of the modules and becoming certified, you will be able to accelerate your design career path to apply for a UX position for the first time or grow your skills in an existing UX or another role.


The certification consists of 15 courses and starts with the basics of User Experience. It is a combination of live workshops and hands-on practices. After completing each module, you will receive a certification that reflects your knowledge of the topic.

The first course is open for all applicants and it will consist of a 1-hour daily session from Monday, May 10 to Friday, May 14, plus a 2-hour workshop on Saturday, May 15.

In this first module, “Introduction to UX,” you will be required to complete a challenge in order to continue with the certification. Depending on the results of the challenge, 30 students will be chosen to continue the full certification.


After this first module, the rest of the program will be held from June to December 2021 with live sessions from Monday to Friday and a workshop every Saturday.
