Everything you need to know about a government-funded UX/UI Engineering course

A UX/UI engineer (user experience engineer) is a hybrid UX/UI designer-developer position. In general, they are front-end developers who have a strong understanding of design thinking and principles along with the ability to turn designs into code. The difference between UX/UI designers vs. engineers is that UX/UI designers focus only on the visual and interactive aspects of the user interface, while UX/UI engineers concentrate on translating those designs into functional and responsive interfaces through coding and programming. As a UX/UI engineer you can create aesthetically pleasing designs while also having the technical knowledge to implement them.
