Expert Experience Design

This minor puts you at the front line of every digital project. With your User Experience skills, you refine each interface to create an efficient and usable whole. To do so, you ask the most important questions before design and development even start.

  • Who are your users?
  • Where do you see emerging patterns in your data set?
  • Can you group and process them into a usable whole?

In your final year of Devine, you will receive expert lectures on important topics in the field of human-computer interaction. For example, you will delve into such topics as its origins and common international research methodologies, behavioural psychology, new interaction possibilities....

In addition, your own exploration and research will be at the center under the guidance of a personal mentor. You will focus on your own research inquiry, setting a critical eye on society to discover opportunities for digital innovation.

Studenten krijgen uitleg over opleiding aan Howest
The Level

Hét grote pluspunt bij Howest is de persoonlijke aanpak. De lectoren kennen elke student en volgen je nauw op. De gebouwen van Howest hebben bovendien een ziel. Op de bruisende campussen heerst een gemoedelijke sfeer onder studenten en lectoren. Ook bij het administratief personeel en Stuvo staat de deur altijd open.

Aan deze hogeschool leer je niet enkel in boeken, je stapt ook de wereld in en oefent in de praktijk. De uitgebreide stages bereiden je voor op de arbeidsmarkt. Na de opleiding ben je klaar voor het echte werk of kan je verder studeren als je dat wil.

Devine is a specialised programme which consists of approximately 350 students. The classes are consciously made up of a small amount of students, which ensures a personalised follow-up and a “familial” atmosphere for the students. Class sessions range from one-on-one coaching with the lectors to 35-50 student workshops. 

There are over 400 international students currently studying in Kortrijk at our campus so you will fit right in with this vibrant international community. We regularly organize events and workshops and there is a central meeting point on campus where international student can hang out.

The academic year officially starts in the second week of September with an orientation week. Attending the orientation week will allow you to familiarize yourself with the campus, socialise with other internationals and take care of practical arrangements. You also get your first theory classes in this first week. That way you are off to a flying start.
