Program Outline

Arising from the Product Design field, the Product Design & Interactivity program has much to with users and their interaction with products and how the experience of using a product can be enhanced and enriched through design research and thinking. To understand the dialogue between a product and a consumer, one must understand the product inherently and get under the skin of the user therefore, this program involves understanding Product design via User research.

The program will focus on interface and interactive medias, mobile and communication applications, interaction software applications, gaming and learning applications will also be introduced to students as a part of the program.

After the completion of the foundation course, students can choose to specialize in the Product design & Interactivity program. This program focuses on the designing and developing interactive digital products, environments, systems, and services – new products and technologies responding to our changing environment where the focus more on studying behavior than on form.
The program will encompass understanding the field of digital media in general. Students will be equipped with design and visualization software tools that will help envision and detail their imagination. Real time user interaction scenarios will be considered to test the product. With Information technology as its base and design thinking as its lateral, interaction design is one of the most upcoming design fields in the country.
In Year four, the students travel to France to spend one semester in the Nantes campus in France. Students will join the International class at the L’école de design Nantes Atlantique.

In the last semester, students return to India to work on their final projects.
