Design for Impact has helped give me the knowledge and skills I needed to enter a career in Design. Abram is an excellent instructor and has taught me the fundamentals of UX design and research.

The program attracts people from diverse cultural, educational, and employment backgrounds. I have enjoyed collaborating to work through a UX design problem from beginning to end as a team.

Make a difference! Life is too short.

Early on in my career, I was determined to work on solving problems that I truly know will make a positive impact to the world. After finishing university, I landed a job that helped me work around the world to tackle real world problems - from malnutrition, domestic violence, to biosecurity, disaster management and unemployment.

Since then, I have met many people who wanted to use their life for a purpose greater than money. They wanted to make a difference and impact their community in a positive way.

As long as people like yourself spend time to understand and tackle real world problems, we can create a better tomorrow.

We can't wait to welcome you.
