Interface technologies have progressed into CUI, GUI, and NUI because of the advancements in Internet of Things, mobile, and cloud computing technologies. A new UI/UX design is anticipated to be created in the future. In this study, we demonstrated our knowledge of the internet, operating systems, contents, and gadgets, as well as our capacity to produce interfaces. For 29 participants, including sophomores, juniors, and seniors in IT departments, a list of 18 items covering four topics was created as part of this study. The results of the understanding test were divided into three categories: excellent, normal, and insufficient, and evaluated. It was discovered that the excellent rate was 19.35%, the average was 42.53%, and the insufficient rate was 38.12%. As a result, just 20% of students had a solid understanding of UI/UX, while the other 80% lacked it. In specifically, the design research area scored 41 points, the design content area scored 43 points, and the design production area scored 16 points, which was the lowest of the four categories in the comparative analysis. Following that, the 10 assessment criteria for the mobile UI/UX build guide were assessed using the same criteria as the UI/UX understanding, with the good score being 16 points, the average being 80 points, and the poor score being 194 points. The evaluation in the UI/UX construction guides was worse than the grasp of UI/UX. Therefore, UI/UX professionals should be supported with professional course organization and systematic curriculum in order to promote UI/UX comprehension and content production capacity.
