Interaction design is the practice of designing interactive digital products, environments, systems and services. [+]

Master in Interaction Design and Technologies

Interaction design is the practice of designing interactive digital products, environments, systems and services. It focuses on behaviour – how users act and how products respond to user behaviour.

 

As such, it is a necessary discipline in any design project aiming to create something complex and computer-augmented that is to be used by humans: computer software, games, interactive products such as smart phones or MP3-players, “intelligent” homes, cars, clothes and so on.

 

Given the increased focus on interaction design in general, and on social media, entertainment and new physical products in particular, the programme aims to provide interaction designers with the knowledge and skills needed to meet the ever-shifting demands of this emerging job market segment....
