I am a final year undergraduate student, studying architecture and planning.At the end of the course, I have realised that I am not too much inclined to take up professional architecture as a career option and so I am interested in continuing my studies by doing masters in a design related field such as HCI, Interaction design etc. , mainly because of the tremendous job opportunies ahead and also my interest in designing user inferfaces.
I would like to engage the UX designer community in a discussion about the different roles and skills necessary in today’s User Experience design field. We have allowed many people in years past to define, or try to define what a UX designer is. From developers, who may see us as simple-minded individuals who don’t understand basic UI design principles, to the business executives, who may see what we do as the final frosting decoration on the cake.
