The User-Centered Design certificate introduces design and research methods by incorporating technology, human activity, and data in order to prioritize needs and wants for product or service development.

Students will be expected to 1) identify design problems, 2) analyze and select appropriate research methods, 3) evaluate data, 4) and apply research driven data and knowledge to design solutions.
