Become a UX Designer
“Today, brands and products are struggling to match the speed and agility of the modern consumer who is always on and always distracted. More than ever, User Experience professionals are needed to build experiences that elevate brands and transform businesses.
The UX Bootcamp is a hands-on education platform that trains agency and client-side professionals to understand, learn and apply Human-Centred Design – at the intersection of creativity, people, and technology – to build digital experiences that people love.”
Hear more from David, our Program Director, as to why UX experiences are important.
In just 16 weeks, you’ll be fully immersed in the world of User Experience (UX) design in an online platform. Through a series of mentor-led lectures and hands-on digital working sessions, you’ll explore each stage of the UX design process. These classes and projects will also be supplemented with Toolbox sessions, which teach tangible and transferable skills. The program will conclude with a an additional 3 day UX Sprint Project on top of you main Project.
We are also encouraging that you bring your own passion project to work on alongside the school projects, going though the same process and getting feedback from your instructors.

“The Instructors that were brought in were fantastic. They all had incredibly great insights into the industry, the role that we should be doing after we’re done with this course, some really good takeaways. It’s intense. It’s fantastic. It is absolutely filled with everything that you’re going to need to get into a UX role.”
“The UX bootcamp at M.AD was a perfect segue from University/College into working a real job. Not only did I receive superb guidance from people working in the tech industry, but I also made lasting connections with a group of like-minded, passionate, and talented individuals – all while working on with a real client, on a real project. Thanks to M.AD, I recently got hired as a Junior UX designer at Canada’s largest advertising agency.”
