COMP 1011 - UX/UI Fundamentals

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

User Experience (UX) encompasses a wide range of activities including User Interface (UI) design, Information Architecture (IA) and field research. Usability design and testing, tight integration and collaboration with software development processes are included in UX. This hands-on course is an introduction to UX/UI for those who are creating user interfaces for web sites, mobile applications, and information systems, as well as those who want a better understanding of the role of UX/UI. Students will follow an iterative and agile approach focusing on User-Centered Design (UCD) as the motivator for product direction. Skills learned in this course will apply to web and mobile applications as well as IT systems interface development. Participants will be expected to work within interdisciplinary teams, with emphasis on collaboration, brainstorming, and continued evolution of an interface concept based on UCD. Upon completion, successful students will be able to incorporate user-centered iterative design principles and processes into a wide variety of IT projects. Some students may want to complete COMP 1910 – Introduction to 3D Simulations and VR/AR concurrently with COMP 1011.

Prerequisite(s)

COMP 1002 or equivalent knowledge of using a Windows PC and file management.
