Course Overview

It is well known that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and especially when designing and evaluating the user interface of an app or software system, personal taste is a poor advisor.
But what is the guidance if a concept is given, but it needs adjustments or details in the project and no specialist is available?
Tried and tested guidelines, user-centred considerations and ergonomic considerations offer a framework and support for the design and the decision between different interface alternatives.
Learn the basics of user interface design in this course and apply them directly in practical exercises. Practical examples round off the course and increase the transfer to everyday work.


The participants know relevant guidelines, patterns and assistance for user interface design. They can independently extend and adapt existing interface concepts. In this way they contribute to a user interface that not only looks attractive but also works well.

Target group

The course is aimed at all persons who would like to contribute to good user interface design in software development projects, but do not have any background in user experience or design. This includes business analysts, requirements engineers and software engineers.
