The marketplace for technology products and technology-based services is increasingly competitive. To succeed in this arena, organizations seek certified professionals with leading-edge knowledge of design, management, user research, product testing, and human factors. The User Experience (UX) certificate at Bentley University (formerly the Information Design certificate) has educated thousands of usability and user-experience professionals over the past 18 years.
If you want to pursue advanced study but can't commit to a full graduate degree program, a certificate offers an ideal solution. Bentley's User Experience Certificate program is one of the oldest and most respected programs of its kind in the country. Building a solid foundation in human factors, usability engineering and project management, this certificate helps participants increase the usability and performance of their product designs while reducing development costs.
An expert faculty and innovative curriculum add value to the UX certificate. Another advantage is flexibility: Take courses in the campus-based state-of-the-art Design and Usability Center (DUC), on the web, or at your place of business. The certificate program aligns with the leading Bentley graduate program in human factors and our internationally recognized DUC, to ensure a focus on the most current research, methods and market requirements.
The UX certificate serves a wide range of individuals, including user-experience professionals, usability specialists, product managers, user researchers, marketing specialists, information architects, UI designers, product designers, engineers, and business analysts.
