Interaction Design is not merely concerned with aesthetic choice; it leverages a deep understanding of users’ desires, needs, motivations, social context, constraints, and psychological factors to design an optimal user experience for digital products.

When designing a system’s behavior, the interaction designer aims to ensure user satisfaction with the product or service.

Aligned with emerging insights in the discipline, the focus is no longer on the digital product or service itself but instead on the experience mediated through the technology.

Aspects of aesthetics and form are crucial for any digital product, regardless of whether the interface is digital or physical.

Our learning concept is radically different

  • Real-life projects

    Each core semester, students pitch project ideas to each other and work on real-life projects that ignite their curiosity.

  • Interdisciplinarity

    Students form interdisciplinary project teams across all study programs, combining diverse skills to develop digital products.

  • Professors as mentors

    Our professors take on the role of mentors, offering tailored support for problem-solving and delivering focused learning units as needed.

  • Self-directed learning

    In a world where knowledge is just a click away, we promote dynamic education through self-directed learning and peer collaboration.

Competencies

Interaction Designers have a strong grasp of human-centred design processes, digital (and analogue) methods, and tools used in the field. You will develop the capacity to creatively experiment, rapidly prototype from low-fidelity sketches to pixel-perfect mockups, and validate ideas towards solutions.

You will develop empathy and awareness, a nuanced aesthetic sense, and a deep understanding of user-friendliness.

As part of the interdisciplinary learning model, you will collaborate in diverse teams, engage with different stakeholders, and confidently present your work to an audience. You will learn how to create alignment between customer needs, product strategy, and your design solution. Interaction Design is not just about the visual: it’s about the full experience of a user. You are responsible for designing the interfaces between humans and technologies.

SPECIALIZATION

Opt for one of our specialized tracks to pursue a focused direction or select the Generalist Path if you want to explore a variety of modules without committing to a specific trajectory.

Why did I decide to study Interaction Design? An Interaction Designer deals with many different issues, such as user experience and visual design, and then creates a product that is appealing and intuitive for the user at the same time.Dominic
