We ask questions, engage stakeholders, experiment and prototype solutions.
How might we…
- foster curiosity and experimentation?
- design for cultural differences and inclusion?
- shape a culture of participation?
- prototype policies for resilient communities?
- design for complex adaptive systems?
- co-design with machine intelligence?
- educate change agents for our societies?
Our lecturers from the School of Computer Science and Information Technology and the School of Design, Film and Art support students in the following areas:
– User Experience
– Interaction Design
– Game Design
– Web / Mobile Design and Development
– Big Data, Data Science and Data Visualization
– Leading-edge topics such as the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and Machine
– Learning, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Smart Cities/Citizens
The MA programmes in Design, Digital Ideation, Eco-Social Design and Service Design are taught in English.
Fields of activity
Thanks to their competencies in systems thinking, social and environmental policymaking, sustainability design and impact assessment, graduates can lead design processes in cross-sector innovation.
In cooperation with clients from industry, research, public and culture sectors, they generate sustainable value for people and society.
The application deadline is every March. If you are interested in attending the Master of Arts in Eco-Social Design programme, contact us any time: we will be happy to review your application. In select cases, admission is possible after the application deadline.
We want to enable access to the Master Digital Ideation for as many interested people as possible from the most diverse areas. We offer the Passerelle as a preparation course for the Master's program in Digital ideation. The module introduces the three areas "Computer Science," "Human-Computer Interaction / UX," and "Interaction Design."
The Passerelle is designed similarly to a summer school and is mainly based on self-study. Based on the assessment and the final admission decision, the head of the program and MA lead decides which areas the student has to attend the Passerelle in the summer before starting the Master's. For each of the three courses, 3 ECTS points will be given (max. 9 points).
