Course content

The course is defined by its distinctive experimental approach to the development of user-centred projects.

Our graduates leave equipped with skills to realise relevant and elegant design proposals with a solid commercial potential.

Interactive Product Futures is a creative, project-based course. It supports advanced product designers who wish to develop and refine their practice in interaction and user-centred product design. The course recognises the fact that different electronic and computing technologies increasingly permeate our lives, but also recognises the need for products to be more empathetic to people and their behaviours. Examples of potential development opportunities include website development, mobile phone application or utility, a computer game or a game level, media elements, interactive TV application.

The course encourages you to experiment with new ways of working with objects and their integration with technologies, both creatively and collaboratively. It also asks you to apply emerging and existing technology in new ways through personal fabrication, research and the experimental application. We invite you to look at academic theoretical frameworks, research methodologies and their application within industry practice.
