Interaction design is a discipline with many dimensions. It combines a way of thinking and a particular design perspective with a rigorous approach to shaping the experience of a potential user. The growth of the discipline has gone hand in hand with the increasing use of digital technology, and today it is applying that technology to real-life scenarios to design the future that matters.
The Master in Interaction Design helps students acquire knowledge, skills and the adeptness at defining problems and proposing solutions that relate to interaction and the user experience. Students will learn how to incorporate digital technology to create enriched experiences. They will be encouraged to experiment and will be guided in the use of various physical and digital prototyping platforms.
