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 Berkeley 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.

Digital design jobs are expected to grow 13% by 2030— 6% faster than the national average.2

What Boot Camp Graduates Are Saying:
  • “I was looking for a career change that did not involve going through another 4-year program. This boot camp really prepared me to be career-ready and made the whole process of transitioning into a new field so much easier! The community is so supportive and the staff really care about seeing you succeed.” Sarah P.
  • “I had a great experience with the UX/UI design program at UC Berkeley Extension. The curriculum equipped me with knowledge of the end-to-end design process and the projects helped me gain practical experience. I utilized the lessons, assignments and TAs as often as needed, which was very helpful as a result.” Danielle T.
  • “I chose to attend while I was furloughed at my current job and wanted to pursue something I'd been interested in for a while but didn't have the time to focus on. It was challenging, but with a supportive environment, inspiring teachers and exciting projects it was more than worth it. I now have a great job in a role I could only have dreamed of, and a strong foundation for a lifelong future in UX design.” Maya K.
