If you are considering going back to school in the fall, I would like to invite you to apply to Austin Center for Design. AC4D is located in Austin, Texas, and our program is one-year long; classes are held on nights and weekends, and the program is an affordable $12,000. We offer a unique combination of courses in interaction design and in social entrepreneurship, and many of our students go on to found and run their own double-bottom-line businesses.
A reminder that there are 10 days remaining to get your application in to Austin Center for Design, if you want to be part of our class of 2011-2012. Austin Center for Design exists to transform society through design
and design education. This transformation occurs through the development
of design knowledge directed towards all forms of social and
Just wanted to share this for any interested in studying interaction design, service design, or social enterprise: Domus Academy is offering two 50% scholarships to their Master in Service Design (starting Sept 2011).
I'm already enrolled in the program and would love to study along with other talented folks. This competition brief in specific addresses one of the core reasons I'm interested in designing services, how can we design systems that encourage sustainable behaviors? If these sorts of topics interest you, take a gander.
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!
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?
I'm trying to figure out which schools are churning out good candidates to fill junior IxD positions, and what these schools are calling the degree undergraduates receive (our HR department needs a better understanding). Schools in Southern California would be of particular interest since that's where we're located.
That said, if anyone steers clear of hiring recent undergrads (favoring instead graduate students or only those with a minimum level of real-world experience---regardless of education), I'd love to hear your thoughts.
