Combine your interest in design, people and technology and learn how to make a person's experience with a product, service or environment a positive one. Gather information about people and their needs, and then design solutions to help them. User experience (UX) design principles can be applied to the web, 3D and immersive environments, processes and even services. You could work in tech, finance, medicine, education, entertainment and more sectors.
