This is a company sponsored training. Tuition fees for the selected students will be paid by UXReactor — with the understanding that students will join the company after successfully completing the training.

On any average day, students will have two sessions (Morning and Afternoon). Each session will consist of 1 hour of theory, and 3 hours of practical work. During the course of 6 months, students will be expected to complete 10+ projects including 1 live project.

The syllabus will cover the following topics:

Design Thinking, Visual Thinking, User Research, Interaction Design, Visual Design, Information Architecture, Design Commuinication and Documentation, Design process and Software Lifecycles, Working with Remote Teams and Communication Skills.

Bachelors degree in Design / Architecture / Fine Arts / Science / Engineering / Business. Minimum aggregate 60% in most recent degree. Students should have graduated by December 2015. Exceptional Candidates without minimum qualifications may also apply.

To qualify, you will need to demonstrate that you have strong visual (originality, colors, typography, artistic, layouts, aesthetic) skills, OR strong software programming skills, OR a history of innovation (new ideas, projects, business plans, etc).

You will be asked to upload samples of your portfolio (scanned artwork, sketches, presentations, URL’s of sites, source code,  etc) so we can better understand your skill sets. Please ensure that the maximum size of the file is no more than 5 MB, and that it is in pdf format. If you dont have software to convert, we recommend cute PDF — its free and works.

Simple answer: No. You do not need to be good at drawing to qualify.

That said, at least 25% of the seats are reserved for candidates who have good drawing / sketching skills, and have a sense of colors, shapes and design aesthetic. The candidates will also also be expected to have a working knowledge of tools such as Photoshop, Illustrator etc.

A good User Experience team consists of members from different backgrounds. If you are interested in Visual Design — then it is important that you are good at drawing. If on the other hand, you are interested in research then it is more important that you have strong analytical and communication skills. Similarly prototypers would need strong programming skills

NOTE: Candidates will be required to learn all aspects of the design process during training.
