At CODE, Design School is the hub of creativity. Here we build things and services for a better future by using design as a tool. Our doors stand wide open, welcoming every student to explore the boundless opportunities within.

Interaction Design is not merely concerned with aesthetic choice. It is instead based on an understanding of users’ desires, needs, motivations, context, constraints, social and psychological factors to design a user experience in which technology has a role.

While designing the system behavior the interaction designer has the responsibility for the 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 if 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, rapid prototype from low-fidelity sketches to pixel-perfect mockups and validate ideas towards final solution.

The experience will lead you to develop empathy and awareness, a tactile sense for aesthetics, and understand user-friendliness.

As part of the interdisciplinary learning model you will learn to collaborate in diverse teams, engage with different stakeholders and confidently present your work to an audience. To be prepared in industry, you are expected to create an alignment between customer needs, product strategy and your design solution. Interaction Design is not just about the visual but also about intangible experiences. You are responsible for designing the interfaces between humans and technologies.

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