About the Programme

What is interaction design?

Interaction Design (IxD) is a theme that has emerged to address the ongoing advancements in technology and the way it relates to people.

Designers are constantly facing challenges that can be answered by developing products, services, and systems that have deeper connections and more dynamic relationships with humans. The behavioural qualities of products, services and environments have became more and more important in today’s world, and Interaction Design is playing a key role in addressing this shift.

At EKA, we keep a broad view on Interaction Design and cover more areas than what is related to digital technology.

How do we teach Design?

We learn design by doing! Our program is project-based and we will work on real projects together with our industry partners. In our projects, we involve the design community, industry professionals and general public. We will go out, do research, and develop concepts to design products, experiences, services, and environments.
