Program description

Interaction Design

Interaction design concerns the design of digital artifacts and digitally mediated communication, with a focus on use experience.

Interaction design is a rapidly changing discipline, and we maintain the relevance of our education by working with real-world design cases and external clients including local industry partners and cultural and civic organizations. Navigating a shifting design landscape also requires the critical mind-set of a scholar, and we foster reflective design by teaching research skills and involving students in active research projects.

The two-year master's program aims to produce designers who can articulate and develop cutting-edge practices in key areas of interaction design: tangible and sensor-based interaction; wearable and embodied interaction; game design; participatory design practices; critical design; social innovation; and collaborative media development. Students approach these genres within a broad context that considers the social, political and ethical consequences of their designs.

We have offered master's degrees in interaction design since 1998, with graduates moving on to positions as designers and strategists in ICT and media industries around the world, as well as to entrepreneurial endeavours.
