Program summary

DSA’s User Experience Design program reflects the global future of design education combining the best ways of teaching using online and face to face learning experiences. The course is 12 weeks with 12–14 hours of study per week delivered on my.designschoolasia.com learning platform and weekly group tutorial meet ups. Upon passing the final examination students will progress to one month of paid co-op industry placement at a leading digital product company.

What you will learn

Define your professional identity as a user experience designer. Our primary function is to deliver the highest quality design education to you through structured units of learning to support your professional development as one of Asia Pacific’s most talented emerging user experience designers.

Our program is aimed at creative people who want to accelerate their career in people-centered design, digital environments and interactive experiences by engaging users through remarkable design solutions at scale, and foster their entrepreneurship either in corporate, SME or startup businesses.

How you will learn

You will receive instruction through screencast lectures, podcasts and challenge activities to support your practice equipping you with the intellectual engagement, technical skills and professional development for a career in user experience–working on social, cultural and economic ‘live’ project briefs through an imaginative approach to interdisciplinary design that makes things better for society.

You will establish a strong interdisciplinary collaboration and ‘designerly ways of knowing’ about value creation using entrepreneurship and innovation business methods developing your visual, verbal and written rhetoric to communicate your project to a non-design, non-technology audience.

Your co-op placement will allow you the opportunity to transfer your education and technical expertise to industry. You will be expected to work closely with peers and actively contribute to the co-op’s current projects across strategy, business and capability, and design outcomes.

The process of learning, creating, and exploring with DSA came with the mindset of ‘learning by doing’, which I carried on to my Individual Research Project (IRP). Towards the end of the course, I was amazed with how I was able to overcome tasks I would otherwise have been afraid to do and to witness my personal growth. I’m truly glad to be a part of DSA for providing knowledge and a great opportunity to experience the real world of work through the co-op placement program.
