Master of Science in Design for Interaction

Delft University of Technology

Program description

Master of Science in Design for Interaction

Designers from the master program Design for Interaction help clients to design innovative and appropriate products and services by placing the key aspects of human-product interaction, which are use, understanding and experience, in the centre of the design process. The master in DfI is specialised in analysing and conceptualising of and designing for human-product interactions in relation to the physical, cultural, technological, and societal contexts in which the product is used.

The DfI master emphasizes studying, conceptualising, prototyping and testing user-product interactions. Students learn how to integrate specialist knowledge from the humanities and the behavioural sciences into design parameters and to use this in concepts for new products. They learn to translate existing and new technologies, such as product intelligence, sensors and new materials into design opportunities. They also learn how to involve users in analysing needs, generating concepts and testing prototypes.

In courses as Product Understanding Use and Experience, Context & Conceptualisation, Observational Research, Interactive Technology Design, Visual Communication Design and in the two master projects, students develop and apply knowledge about people, their needs and wishes, the social and cultural contexts in which they live, and the opportunities that existing and new technologies offer for realising product solutions.
