Why User Experience Design?

“Companies are actively investing to build up talent in UX and UI as user satisfaction with the online interaction experience of products has taken top priority.”

– Straits Times, 2019


Ever wondered how the websites you visit are functional, easy to read and access? These are the works of UX designers. If you want to try being one, then go get a UX design course from Smartcademy Singapore!


The user experience design course from Smartcademy is an in-depth look and feel of how UX has become one of the most crucial aspects of web development.

User experience has been endlessly regarded as the ‘face value’ of a website and most of us agree.
