The Design for Interaction (DfI) Master’s programme focuses on the ways in which people and products interact: how does a user understand, use, and experience a product? This raises the question of how designers can conceptualise products that are relevant to the user.
The goal of the programme is to educate designers who understand what people do with and expect from the products they use in everyday life, and who are able to design products appropriate to their needs’ concerns and abilities. The programme offers students a multidisciplinary course of study, covering topics ranging from aesthetics and ergonomics to psychology and sociology. Students learn to formulate design visions, create and visualise concepts, and develop and test experiential prototypes. The programme delves deep into the processes and principles underlying people’s interactions with products: how to involve users in analysing needs, and how to apply technologies in the product development process. During the project phase, students apply and integrate what they have learnt.
Not only is a DfI student able to design interaction visions, through technological knowledge (s)he is able to create realistic and working demonstrators. Through this combination DfI prepares you both theoretically and hands on, to become a user experience expert.

In most cases, if you hold a BSc degree and the Master’s programme is closely related to your Bachelor’s programme, you will be admitted directly into the programme. However, if the Master’s programme does not follow directly from your undergraduate programme, you will be required to take additional courses in what is called a bridging programme. This may be a standard programme, or it may be tailored to your specific situation.
International students should consider taking a Pre-Master to gain access to universities in Netherlands when:
