Service Design

A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

Those who decide to study service design often learn about logistics, psychology, organizational principles, and design theory. The eventual goal is to create services that satisfy consumers and improve the organization's efficiency.

Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.

M.Des. in Public Space Design Students displaying their work from a public space design course, which explored Urban Planning through mapping. Course: Making Places Public places are sometimes the sites for conflict of race, class, gender and economics. But they are also places of synergy and the collective where individuals and communities can interact with each other. In the Indian context where pastoral communities consider grasslands as common land that everyone’s cattle can graze in or streets that become make shift markets where street vendors have traditionally congregated to sell their produce. With emerging technologies such as the Internet of things and cloud computing we will increasingly connect everyone and everything in a seamless network, further blurring the boundaries between public and private. All of this adds varied dimensions to the word “public”. It is critical to understand this changing dynamic of public space. The program fosters empathetic and reflective designers capable of engaging with theory and public policy.

Masters in Service Design in Asia 2017. M.Des. in Human Centered Design The vision of this program is to create designers who will empathetically explore and apply understanding of human behavior, context, and technology towards creation of digital products and services that enhance the users lives. They will not only, what David Kelly, IDEO says, “Have a dream that goes beyond what exists, rather than fixing what exists”, but also realize this dream. Human Centered Design is about keeping focus on “people” while creating products and services. It is about creating rich user experiences that aim at solving existing problems, creating delight for people and making products and services usable and useful. At Srishti Human Centered Design concentrates on Interaction Design and User Experience Design. We think about human-centered design as not just “user-driven” in its traditional sense, but more about “designing for emerging usages”. We foster a combination of creative Art & Design thinking, along with critical thinking of the Humanities to explore a human-centered design that not only produces great digital solutions, but also critically questions and explores future ways of interacting with digital technology and their implications. Human-Centered Design at Srishti not only covers the traditional reductive aspects of User-Centered Design & Human-Computer Interaction such as Historical Frameworks & models (e.g. cognitive psychology models, cooperative design, participatory design, contextual design) Design Elements (visibility, accessibility, legibility & language) Creative Design (Ideation & brainstorming, concept development) Analysis tools (persona, scenarios and use-cases, usability and experience evaluation) Evaluative tools (requirements,...
