Bachelor of Arts in Interaction Design

General

Program Description

This program takes future designers on a journey that explores the look, feel and behavior to create positive experiences through technology.
In the vast and fast-paced discipline of Interaction Design, our study program prepares you to work in the creative industry where you put the human, instead of the function, as the starting point of designing the interaction with technology.

Your career choices

With a trained grasp of de­sign con­cepts and prac­ti­cal im­ple­men­ta­tion com­pe­tence, you will be re­spon­si­ble for the look, feel and user-friend­li­ness of the soft­ware you are work­ing on. You will be able to cre­ate low-fi­delity sketches and pixel-per­fect mock­ups, val­i­date dif­fer­ent de­signs and style ap­proaches by con­duct­ing split A/B tests and mea­sur­ing prod­uct per­for­mance. Be­cause you will be the join­ing bolt in a team of mar­keters, prod­uct man­agers, coders and other stake­hold­ers, you will mas­ter an em­pa­thetic and co­op­er­a­tive style of com­mu­ni­ca­tion. As an in­ter­ac­tion de­signer, you don’t just make things that work look pretty. You are re­spon­si­ble for the align­ment with cus­tomer in­ter­ests and there­fore the suc­cess of your dig­i­tal pro­ject.
We will not tell you, what (or who) you will be after grad­u­at­ing at CODE – this de­ci­sion will be to­tally up to you. But to give you an idea, we rec­om­mend you head over to Dig­i­tale-leute.de for some very in­ter­est­ing in­ter­views with in­ter­ac­tion de­sign­ers from the dig­i­tal econ­omy.
