The User Experience Design MSc course aims to equip you with the behavioral theory, design practice, and technology know-how that is necessary for a career as an interaction designer, usability engineer, user researcher, or head of user experience. It focuses on the analysis, design, prototyping, and evaluation of multimedia, multi-modal, and multi-platform user interfaces that are easy to use and support a great user experience.
Each taught module guides students through a UX project – to optimize an interaction, innovate a digital lifestyle, persuasively apply emerging technology, and collaborate on the development of virtual reality. Each project provides opportunities to analyze, design, prototype, and evaluate cutting-edge technologies, follow industry trends, and apply contemporary theories. A final "capstone" project completes the student's portfolio.
This course was developed in consultation with our industry panel, which includes Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, DreamWorks, and Samsung Design Europe.
