“We plan education as a form of experimental design and as a dialogue about design principles, methods and tools, so to acquire knowledge and skills for responsible progress and innovation.”

Margherita PillanCourse Coordinator

Responding to the development of Information and Communication Technologies in the last decades, the programme will provide knowledge and design experiences in all the application fields of digital technologies: interactive and connected products, responsive environments, tangible and multimedia interfaces, personal artefacts.

The focus is on design for experience through the innovation of artefacts, spaces and services. The programme aims at training highly qualified professionals who are able to employ technology potentials in all design application domains, drive design processes in multidisciplinary contexts and use design tools to represent both material and non-material dimensions of interactive experiences.
