Course content

This programme is designed to help you develop your critical awareness of major issues in interaction and user experience design.

This programme was formerly named Interaction Design and has been renamed User Experience Design to better represent its content.

It aims to improve your effectiveness as a designer within industry and is beneficial to both recent graduates and those currently working within industry, advancing your knowledge and specialist skills to a higher level.

Loughborough Design School offers a unique combination of design and specialist human factors teaching which equips students with core Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and User Experience (UX) design skills. The content of the programme therefore enables you to develop your skills and competencies in both the creative and/or analytical aspects of User Experience whilst working on a diverse range of projects.

Key skills that you will develop include user experience design principles and practice, qualitative and quantitative design research methods, interactive screen based prototyping, usability testing, principles of sustainable business, enterprise and entrepreneurship, service and social design, team working and project management.
