Content

The relationship between humanity and technology has shaped the world as we experience it, whether these technologies were agricultural, industrial or, as they are today, digital.

The interaction between social, cultural and technological aspects of life defines the study of Interaction Design as a field of enquiry. Interaction is no longer merely a technological phenomenon, rather it is relational; it links every aspect of social life.

People experience their environment and interaction with others mediated through new technologies. Interaction Design considers not only the opportunities that designed products or system provide, but also the space and relationships with the people who are affected.

This course examines the relationship between the technological push for innovation and the societal search for personal equality, quality of life and community wellbeing. Students on this programme will explore how these societal issues are addressed by technological advancement and social innovation within contemporary society.
