I am a bachelor of fine arts (Visual Communication and Applied art) from India. I have been working in the field for e-learning from past 6+ years. I am now planning to take up the masters degree in HCI.
Umeå Institute of Design (http://www.dh.umu.se) announces four new PhD positions. The PhD positions are within the fields of industrial design and mobile interaction design. The application deadline is May 12th 2010.
Please visit the specific pages for further details about each position:
I know there has been prior discussion to some aspects of what I am going to ask, but the background is a little different this time.
-After a Masters in Computer Science, why should one pursue Masters degree in Interaction Design or Information Design? At a more abstract level, why are design studies essential for
Software or Computer Science guys?
- Isn't it possible for a Software guy or a Computer Science guy to get the required knowledge in the areas of Information design and/or Interaction design with experience?
It's my third year in Business School. I have no design/ computer background. However, I want to apply a master program of Interaction Design or User Experience Design. I just know CMU's Interaction Design does not require design background. Do you know any other universities have this kind of program?
