How we interact with our devices, with apps and websites, is constantly evolving. Interaction designers can shape that evolution, optimising the experience and putting people at the heart of design. This course focuses on the cutting-edge design skills, knowledge and capabilities needed for a contemporary designer to work across multiple fields, practices and contexts. Students will undertake a series of interaction design studios focusing on industry-leading practices in human-centred design, design thinking, experience design, service innovation and augmented reality. Opportunities exist for industry work experience, international study tours and networking with design industry professionals nationally and internationally. Career pathways beyond the design industries include roles in game design, information technology, health, education, science and engineering, as well as business and enterprise. Graduates will also be suited to create their own employment opportunities in emerging technologies such as wearable fashion technology and robotics.
