Institute for Design Innovation

The Institute for Design Innovation is committed to delivering high-quality teaching and research that aims to address real-life enterprise and social innovation needs.

Our Design Innovation Management programmes allow students to engage in globally connected creative projects whilst studying in the ‘design capital of the world’. These projects will provide students with experience of working in cross-cultural and globally distributed design-teams, skills increasingly required by industry.

We are committed to helping our students achieve great things, and encourage all of our students to build professional relationships with the organisations that interest them the most. Whether your goal is to launch your own business or support the development of an existing product or service, the Institute for Design Innovation is dedicated to making your future ambitions a reality.

This programme

MA Design and Culture programme will provide you with the concepts and skills for undertaking ethnographic research for completion of design projects. These skills can be applied and developed in both the interdisciplinary and international design projects that provide the core of the programme.

You will explore the dynamic, contingent relationships between design and its many cultural contexts. You will have the opportunity to develop your analytical and research skills through undertaking a substantial design innovation and evaluation project that draws on the influences of culture in design. These projects will provide you with the experience of working in cross-cultural and interdisciplinary design-driven teams.

Future career prospects

We have excellent industry links with the capital and upon graduation, you will be equipped with key skills sought by employers. Our programme will provide you with the right skills and knowledge to enhance your career prospects in user-centred design. You will be a qualified professional versed with many new and developed design skills.

Graduates will also have the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and career prospects further by undertaking an MRes or PhD programme.
