      Design is not a visual art, we believe it's a collaborative process. We solve problems by understanding our users and working with them to prototype and test the best solutions. Whether your interest is in user experience and interfaces, graphical, or motion design, if you can imagine it, you can design it at Umuzi.

      Learning Experience:

      The learning experience can be customised to your taste or preferred learning method which makes the eperience priceless. 
       

      Course:

      The course goes beyond the stated scope and teaches you how to adapt to environments. It also teaches you how to be professional in the form of practising the actual skills as opposed to giving giving you a list to learn what is professionalism.

      The course material is very easy to understand as it also accomodates different learning methods and grants you the opportunity to use your own learning style or method.

      I am a Data scientist at Umuzi and I must say my journey here has been amazing. the academy is amazing, I remember the first day I came here to write a test, I was praying to make it in because the environment is amazing. open plan working space, the people here are lovely and they dress good.

      The data scence course is really good, we use a lot of online platforms to learn. you learn at your own pace and the material is short, very easy to go trough and understand.

Training is offered by industry experts who are passionate about their respective courses. Nothing is done for compliance but rather for understanding. Thumbs up all the way!
