Contemporary society moves its first steps towards "artificial intelligence". This expression may sound bombastic, but the essence of the phenomenon can be synthesized in a few words: many tiring activities that today weigh mainly on human intelligence are steadily being transferred to computers, which are finally able to read the semantic meaning of raw information, creating a vast network of benefits and profits.

Modern digital environments and the "artificial" intelligence that are developed in and from them are deeply changing jobs in every sector, at every level. Many new professions are being developed in this setting, and it's not a case that most of the EU funding being placed in 2014 and onwards is going towards a "digital agenda".... [-]

Interaction Design (IxD) is a rapidly developing creative field. The ongoing evolution of smart consumer technology has increased the need for well-designed intuitive user interfaces and experiences. Be it a mobile app, the front-end of a web-based service or a complex system involving different digital and physical experiences, interaction design is an essential part of it. Interaction designers aim to make users’ encounters with sophisticated information and machinery as simple and pleasant as possible.

Our program focuses on human-centered design. User research, analysis, and testing form the foundation of the curriculum. Theoretical studies are built around practical design projects based on real briefs by companies from Estonia and abroad. User-based, agile design and product/service development methods ensure the sound outcome of the projects.... [-]

While industry demand for skilled interaction designers and various other jobs, such as user experience (UX) designers, service designers etc., is increasing, there is a lack of formal education/training offered by universities in interaction design. This course is designed to provide students with the most current and requisite skills in this fast-evolving field. Graduates possess skills in industrially applicable and cost-effective information environments (i.e. multimedia, interactive systems design and associated information technology). The course provides industry with graduates who can combine these skills with those of their original discipline in professional applications-oriented settings. The course is committed to producing graduates who have a deep understanding of human-centred approaches to designing digital technologies. This ensures that 'products' created are more likely to 'fit' meaningfully into users' lives, because the design process is informed by a deep understanding of people's practices, particular situations and values. This course is attractive to different types of learners, namely: those who are currently working in a job that is not related to interaction design those working in jobs closely related to interaction design, and those already working in interaction design-related jobs. ...
