User Research & Methods
Engage in observations, interviews, surveys, and co-design activities (among other activities) – Develop empathy with design stakeholders. Produce reports whose outcomes have impacts on design decisions. This module helps students develop empathy with design stakeholders – looking at the project from their perspective, in order to let go of the defensive and protective feelings that often surround a project.

Information and Interaction Design
Designing meaningful relationships among people and the products they use is both an art and a science. This module will focus on the unique design practice of: representing and organizing information in such a way as to facilitate perception and understanding (information architecture); and, specifying the appropriate mechanisms for accessing and manipulating task information (interaction design).

Visual Design and User Interface Design
Visual design as a field has grown out of both user interface (UI) design and graphic design. As such, it focuses on the aesthetics of a product Visual design aims to shape and improve the user experience through considering the effects of illustrations, photography, typography, space, layouts, and color on the usability of products and on their aesthetic appeal.

Design thinking is a powerful process of problem-solving that begins with understanding unmet customer needs. From that insight emerges a process for innovation that encompasses concept development, applied creativity, prototyping, and experimentation. When design thinking approaches are applied to business, the success rate for innovation improves substantially.
