I have a BA in Industrial design, I would love to pursue an IxD master's degree but there is a serious hurdle: they are expensive, but there might be a solution: Funding, but...
Fact: There is a lot of funding opportunities if you are pursuing an engineering or a science degree all around US and Europe, you have to look for research positions on their websites and/or get in touch with professors.
Question: Is there such opportunities for IxDers or designers in general ?
I'm in the process of applying for grad school, looking to learn about and study the usability of public transit systems. This is cross-disciplinary, but a big component of it is masters-level training in UX/Interaction Design. Would anyone happen to know of good scholarships/grants to chase for work in this area?
I hold an undergraduate degree in Graphic Design and have been working as a User Interface Visual Designer for the past year. I am interested in going back to school to get a Masters in a more specific and tech based field in the Fall of 2011. I have been looking into NYU Poly and other NYC based schools, since this is where I am from.
Do you know of any organizations that help financially in the education and advancements of Interaction Design?
Also if you know of any programs which are excellent I would love to hear about them. Thank You!
