Interaction Design

Study track of the Master degree programme in Communication, Media, Sound and Interaction Design


Designing relations and experiences: Interaction Designers create digital and analog interfaces between people and their environments. In a human-centered approach they define how interfaces are used. The study focuses on topics such as digital product design, user experience design, service design, mobile design, game design and VR/AR/XR design. It is centered around practice-oriented tasks, from their holistic conception to their prototypical application and evaluation. Interaction Designers collaborate interdisciplinary with Communication, Media and Sound Designers.
