Some graduates of the program work inside tech companies and design firms, from established players to startups. Others go it alone, designing online networks, prototype mobile apps, or invent entirely new experiences for sharing rides in a self-driving car. All have an appreciation for the challenges of innovation and for what is required to start their own enterprise.
The entry requirements specific to the Interaction Design program are as follows:
- Applicants to the program typically have an undergraduate degree in the visual arts, design or architecture and are usually interviewed with a portfolio of creative work. We also want to hear from applicants with a background in computing, technology, electronic engineering or psychology. Even if you don’t have a typical portfolio, you must demonstrate experience in making, whether evidenced in physical materials, software interfaces or human interactions, including iteration, refinement and convergence toward explicit design goals.
- You will be open-minded, with an empathy for social, economic and global challenges. You will welcome the opportunity to operate outside of your comfort zone and open to learning through experimentation and creative inquiry.
