Certified Professional for Usability and User Experience – User Requirements Engineering (CPUX-UR)

CPUX-UR Header

User requirements for an interactive system form the basis for a human-oriented design process: They provide a comprehensive description of an interactive system from a user perspective and show the structured development of products with a sound user experience.

In this seminar you will receive systematic and targeted instruction on how to derive the relevant user needs and user requirements from the usability context as well as how to prioritise them.

This seminar familiarises you with the terms, concepts and methods of User Requirements Engineering. We give short theoretical lessons before completing extensive exercises on the topics. We prepare you specifically and practically for the theoretical and practical exam to become a Certified Professional for User Requirements Engineering (CPUX-UR). The practical exam to attain the CPUX-UR certificate consists of analysing the usability context, drawing up a report on user needs as well as formulating and prioritising the user requirements.

The content of the seminar is based on the curriculum of the International Usability and User Experience Qualification Board (UXQB®).

Your benefit

You gain a comprehensive overview of the methods of analysing the usability context, identifying user needs and determining user requirements. A wide range of accompanying exercises in the seminar help you to learn how to apply these methods independently.
