Testimonial

This degree course gave me a multidisciplinary perspective and enabled me to explore various areas including photography, audiovisuals, programming and animation. This path of exploration helped me identify my passion: UX/UI design. As regards the degree course, I would highlight the projects that simulate the professional world, which are undoubtedly the most enriching aspects. I am now a UI Designer at KingEclient, the company where I did my internship.

The degree course covers topics including design, animation, 3D modelling and programming, among others. For me personally, the training opened the doors to mobile application programming, giving me the knowledge and tools I needed to continue growing in this field. With a little effort and a good supply of knowledge, I found the opportunity to carve my niche as a programmer in a start-up, where I developed the Jaleo App mobile application.
