How people’s experiences, emotions, values and goals intersect with technology is at the core of UXD. We’ll teach you how to design useful products and services based on how users behave. You could be the next bright engineer who creates an app that makes algebra fun for school kids by tapping into the latest virtual reality technology. To help ideas like these pop into your head, year one will encourage you to focus on the user and his/her interaction with technology.
In year two, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the design process by considering different stakeholders of the product. Year three will take a closer look at the social impact of technology before you concluding the year with your internship and graduation project.
During year two you will get the chance to specialise as a UX designer by following a minor on UXD, at another THUAS faculty, or even another university. You can apply for Photography in Focus, which covers a brief history of photography complemented by practical photography master classes. Or follow an Internet Marketing Tools minor, which teaches you how to help companies reach their target audiences online. You can also take the Game Development and Simulation minor, which readies you for a career in developing games. You will learn the basics of 3D modelling, simulation and artificial intelligence (AI).

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.
If you’re academically inclined, you may want to follow a master’s after graduating from UXD. Because of UXD’s specific programme, there are as yet no master’s at THUAS that appropriately complement the UXD bachelor. However, our neighbours at the Delft University of Technology offer an interesting alternative, Human Technology Interaction. This master is focused on design. You could also apply for the Media Technology Master at Leiden University.
Outside the Netherlands, UXD students can follow a master’s straight after graduation. You should note that some universities in the Netherlands require you to follow a pre-master’s course after graduating from THUAS.
