What Is UX/UI?

Great design goes beyond stunning aesthetics. Learn to harness cutting-edge tools to create effective user-centric experiences. While UX and UI go hand in hand, they are two distinct, related disciplines. At UofT SCS UX/UI Boot Camp, you’ll learn both in addition to web prototyping. Your learning will culminate in a portfolio that showcases in-demand skills — from storyboards and prototypes to interactive apps and responsive websites.

UX: The Functionality

User Experience (UX) design is focused on eliminating friction for the user of a product or service. UX includes interaction design; information architecture; wireframing; product design; plus user research, testing, and data.

UI: The Look

User Interface (UI) represents how users interact with and experience digital products and services. UI includes brand expression, visual communication, accessibility, graphic design, color, layout, and typography.

What Former Learners Are Saying

  • “[My career coach] was one of my biggest cheerleaders throughout my entire job search process. She was constantly pushing me forward and helping find resources as well as overlooked opportunities to help me find the role I’m in today. I really don’t think I would have the job I have now without her.” Nicole D.

  • “…The tools I learned in boot camp (such as Miro), combined with my own experience as a virtual classroom learner, enable me to handle [my new role] with confidence, providing technical expertise to the course facilitator as well as the end-user participants. The fact that I was enrolled in the University of Toronto UX/UI Boot Camp is something that set me apart and made me an attractive candidate for the job.” Lisa E.

  • “I’m very fortunate and grateful for attending this boot camp. … I was apprehensive at first but the boot camp exceeded my expectations. … It helped me accelerate my career goal in a relatively short amount of time (approximately 5 months after completing the boot camp I started my new job). … The boot camp has both conceptual and practical components using a blend of learning methods … I’m so glad I chose this UX/UI boot camp over others.” Vicky L.
