  • The program includes a lot of various workshops, from programming and designing physical and digital products to even basic electrical engineering. What is even more interesting is the connection between them – the creation of an online and offline product. In the program, you get the main ideas and understanding of each field, which gives a solid ground to start any new project you have in mind.

  • For me the most valuable key lesson I learnt during the program is connected to the thick schedule of different classes in such a short time frame. This teaches how to juggle many tasks, allowing you to understand what are the most important tasks you really need to prioritize and which ones are less in need of the best solution.

Descripción

The Master of Arts (MA) in Interaction Design combines design thinking, prototyping techniques, digital fabrication, programming, and physical computing in one study program addressing the realization of projects in which the interaction between the design culture and the technological development allows to generate design-driven innovations.

The master offers students specialized knowledge and skills of interaction design. A pragmatic problem-solving approach to design is applied in a laboratory environment. Peer to peer learning, iterative processes and the rapid prototyping of various solutions qualify the students to pursue careers in industry, research centers and design practices, wherever technological innovation and design meet.

The study program covers three semesters, full time, and is structured in five modules, each of them scheduling a variety of design, methodological and technical courses. The third semester (which corresponds to the 5th module) is entirely dedicated to the thesis project. This module also allows students to acquire practical and professional skills with an internship at companies or firms.

Sobre el curso: My key learning at MAInD has been that technology is not a solution by itself. Technology is an enabler to provide the best experience for users. Code, 3D printing, UI design are useless if not targeted towards users’ happiness. Plus, remember that design has to be fun. Do your best, be curious, explore. If you make mistakes, nobody will die.

Sobre el curso: Learning about user-centred design principles and methodologies was crucial in defining my value as an Interaction Designer, and gave me the possibility of starting working right after finishing my master without doing an internship. These skills are highly requested in this UX/UI field and it's quite difficult to find people with this specific experience and knowledge.
