Courses in Information and Interaction Design major are centred on two themes. First theme, information, focuses on effective communication and meaningful form creation. Exploring the topics of expression, visual communication, time/motion, and experience, students are able to experiment diverse ways of selecting, representing, and communicating information through different media. Secondly, interaction is investigated with the topics of service, physical computing, and user experience. Based on human-centered design principle and process, students work to gain an analytic and empathic understanding of human interaction in order to better envision the future of interaction.
Curriculum consists of a combination of studio, seminar and method courses that synthesizes perspectives from the humanities, social sciences, human-computer interaction, and design. Students have opportunities to practice communicating their ideas through critiques, talks, presentations, and demonstrations so that they become effective communicators in various contexts. Students’ four-year long study culminates in courses, Senior Project and Techno-Art Capstone Project that demonstrates a mastery of the fundamental principles of information and interaction design.
