The course is for designers and software developers wishing to enhance their knowledge of user-centred design and usability evaluation of software-enabled products.
Course content has been designed for maximum relevancy to the marketplace.
Upon completion, you'll be able to apply your knowledge and interaction design skills to novel interaction paradigms; make effective use of a broad range of design methods; obtain in-depth knowledge of developments in mobile, ubiquitous or wearable systems and understand the commercial contexts of interaction design.
Students can exit with PGDip and PGCert.
The course can be studied full-time or part-time.
For full-time students the academic year is divided into three 15-week semesters.
The taught element of the course is delivered during the first two semesters. Modules involve approximately 20 per cent classroom teaching and 80 per cent individual or group work. The third semester focuses on your major project.
Part-time students study alongside full-time students with a minimum attendance of one half day per week, depending on the number of modules taken.
Graduates have gone on to work as commercial interaction designers on both software and software-enabled physical products, as well as using this as a starting point for a research career in human-centred interaction design.
Our graduates are working in roles that include:
At the end of the taught element there is the possibility of a placement with a digital media company for the major project module. This puts real experience on your CV as you consolidate your expertise.
Normally, a 2:2 honours degree in a relevant discipline, i.e. those including substantial elements of computing, psychology, information design or product design. For appropriate candidates without an honours degree, entry to the course will normally involve an interview.
