The Singapore University of Technology and Design has teamed up with USER to add
another two course to their SkillsFuture Series Course. The two courses will be a digital
transformation course and a usability & user experience course for anyone looking to
expand their skills. These new courses will be offered by SUTD along side other courses
that help locals learn about data-analytics, cybersecurity, entrepreneurship, and much
more. The purpose of these courses is to equip Singaporeans with emerging industry
skills that will help them stay relevant in the future economy.
The first course is all about building your digital transformation strategy. This course is
so beneficial because many companies are demanding specialized professionals in
digital transformation. The digital transformation course provides the students with a
global vision of the digital economy. The main focus of the course is to learn exactly
what digital transformation is and then learn how to implement it into a company. One
will also learn how to measure the degree of digital maturity of a business and analyze
how to enact digital transformation in a company. Students will understand the
challenges and opportunities of the digital economy by the end of the class and will
learn new skills so they may be professionals of the digital era.
The second course offered is all about usability and user experience and is made for
designers, developers, or anyone looking to get involved with UX. Everyone can take this
introductory course as no prior knowledge is required. Some things taught during the
course will be how to conceptualize a web and usability evaluation methods and the
principles of interface design. Search engine optimization is also a part in this course as
you will learn about its relationship with user experience and how to organize the
information for its optimal search engine placement. This course is so important
because it will teach you the importance of user experience in relationship to a business
and how to improve user experience on your own.
These two new courses offered by SUTD are just a few of the many great courses to
take that will give anyone the advantage when looking to find a job in this new tech
economy. By learning new skills, you are not only making yourself more versatile but
becoming smarter and being able to handle more important tasks at the same time.
