MAJ02092 Interaction Design

Information technology is no longer just a tool for work and productivity, it is an integral part of our everyday lives, mediating our interactions with one another and our broader environment. Digital technologies shape how we work, how we communicate, socialise, and connect with others. As technology advances and computing power increases, we face significant technical and design challenges. To meet these challenges, we need to understand how to design for interactions that unfold within rich and complex social and physical environments.

Graduates of this major develop a deep understanding of how digital technologies shape our everyday experiences. They learn human-centred approaches to designing and creating technologies which support interactions which are enjoyable, effective, ethical, sustainable and responsible. Graduates develop the practical skills to be able to translate design concepts into working systems, as well as the necessary creative and social skills to ensure that what they create has a positive impact on the world.
