UX, or user experience, encompasses all aspects of an end-user’s interaction with a company, its services, and its products. In its most general form, UX can refer to a user’s experience with any product, be it a car, bookshelf, coffee maker, or anything else. However, since the term was invented in the late 1990s when the tech industry was growing exponentially, it is used most often to describe a user’s interaction with the digital world — and not just visuals or ease of navigation, but the entire overall experience. Classes that incorporate UX in their curriculum focus on all the individual elements that shape this experience, including ease of use, efficiency, relevance, and the overall pleasantness and quality of the experience.

An understanding of UX concepts is essential to many jobs in the tech space, including software engineer, front-end and back-end web developer, full stack developer, mobile developer, and project manager. In 2018, web developers earned a median yearly wage of $69,430. The employment of web developers is projected to increase by 13 percent from 2018 to 2028. Software engineers earned a median yearly wage of $105,590 in 2018, and employment in this sector is projected to increase 21 percent from 2018 to 2028.
