Today, we’re excited to announce our newest immersive career course in Product Design. 

We believe that what makes people great in the field of technology is not knowing yet another programming language, or the ability to solve an algorithm a little faster than the next person. 

What makes someone successful in technology is their ability to combine technical skills with creativity and empathy to solve real, human problems.

Think of many of the great companies that have been created over the past decades — AirBnB, Uber, Snapchat, Twitter, etc... Most of them didn’t invent anything new — at least to start. They leveraged existing technology to solve problems for people in new and innovative ways. That’s why at Flatiron School, we’ve always placed a tremendous premium on creative expression.

As technology has proliferated, and become more accessible, this demand for creative thinking has only accelerated. We don’t just expect software to be usable - we expect an intuitive and seamless user experience, whether we’re interacting with a consumer app or enterprise software. 

Given this trend, we’ve seen a tremendous rise in the demand for great product designers, so much so that our students are already being recruited into these roles from our other programs! 

We are excited to launch this new Product Design course to help people hone their ability to solve problems with creativity and empathy in order to launch new careers. The Product Design program relies on creativity and empathy as students learn UX design and UI design to develop digital products that are efficient, enjoyable, and easy to use.
