The Master of Interaction Design is a specialised postgraduate coursework degree for students seeking to become interaction designers. This course covers a broad range of areas, including the application of advanced technologies, electronics and programming, physical or virtual interface manipulation, material and engineering fabrication. Students will be exposed to the key concepts of interaction design. They will explore innovative approaches to the integration of advanced technologies in design practice. They will also gain an understanding of social and business contexts in which products and technologies are used.
During the final year of the degree, students have the opportunity to design interactive artifacts, systems or services that may contribute to leading industrial projects. Students will be able to connect and collaborate with students linked with the International Tangible Interaction Design Lab, forming relationships for future projects and potentially future careers.
The course is designed to benefit students from a variety of backgrounds including design, architecture, engineering, information technology and computer science. Students who have existing design expertise will be engaged and challenged. Students without background in design will gain the fundamental design skills needed to succeed.
The Master of Interaction Design enables professionals from varied backgrounds to specialise and transform their career path. Graduates can pursue careers in various industries including interaction design, system design, product design, interface design, service design, and entertainment design. They may work on projects that include various informational or 'smart' products, systems and services-related design. This course can also provide a pathway into higher degree by research.
