User Experience Design and IT Architecture


Course Description

Master of Science with a major in Informatics

This two years Master’s programme will provide knowledge on transforming enterprise objectives into a creative user experience and delivering a supportive IT architecture.

User experience in ever changing environment

Personal devices such as tablets, smartphones, and wearables are replacing desktop computers at the workplace and in the home. Work is often done on the go, in a mobile and ever changing environment – switching from one device to another and moving first from the office to the bus stop, and then home.

Since the emergence of the iPhone, user experience design has become central to making our interactions with all kinds of digital devices functional, productive, and inspiring – thus raising expectations when we use business IT systems. IT architectures fuel cross-channel, mobile, and cloud-based solutions. Companies and individuals move their data to the cloud, they use software as a service (SaaS), and they engage both socially and commercially via the Internet. Meanwhile, in the workplace, manufacturers have introduced intelligent robotics to automate production.

Rethinking of the way IT solutions are designed and architected

The underlying information systems supporting this shift are changing too, introducing new constraints and goals. This requires a new mindset, a rethinking of the way IT solutions are designed and architected to transform enterprise objectives into a creative user experience and to deliver a supportive IT architecture.

This masters will equip you with knowledge and skills to tackle these challenges. You will learn user experience design, IT architecture and enterprise architecture. You will be able to design and develop mobile and server-side solutions, as well as learn to master the fundamentals of service design and cloud computing.
