What is UX Design?

UXD "User Experience Design" is a design process with the main objective of designing a great experience for its users. It integrates different disciplines such as interaction design, learning theories, usability, and human interaction. UXD is the design process of a product that is useful, easy to use, and interactive leaving the user with a valuable experience.

About UX@UM

  • UX@UM is a conference for graduate students run by graduate students. A two-day conference connecting design innovators with industry experts through user experience papers, posters, tutorial sessions, and roundtables. The conference is a platform for all graduate students to create and share their products and designs and research in the area of UX.

  • Given a wealth of UX topics available as technology advances, our mission stems from discussing ideas, research questions, methodology, evaluation tools, etc. to pinpoint how UX designs can be applied to different areas and how UX in the future can transform design principles and revolutionize human usage and perception of technology.

  • We are a team of over 20 graduate students representing the UM Schools of Education, Information, and Public Health. We aim to create a space for scholarly conversations about all that is UX.
