Master in Interaction Design

General

Program Description

mestrado-design-interacao

In a society that increasingly values experience over the product or service, which tends to dematerialize and is mediated by technological solutions, this Master in Interaction Design aims to explore the relationship between people and digital artifacts, with a view to impact social, cultural and ethical interactions with existing or emerging technologies, aiming at developing proposals that have a positive impact on society and the quality of life of users.

Through a multidisciplinary approach centered on the user , in close cooperation with experts from academia or the market , in a pedagogical model focused on the project , it is intended to provide the student with theoretical knowledge and practical skills that allow him to master the various design steps, from the survey of needs and characterization of the user, the ideation and testing of prototypes, culminating in the development of the solution and structuring of the business model.
