I am in a dilemma and hoping to get some help here. I have graduated as an industrial designer in June 2011 and had applied to Masters in interaction design program at Ivrea (which is under Domus Academy, Milan now) and Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID). I have been accepted in both the institutes for masters course starting in January 2012 and I chose to attend the course at Domus Academy.

Now the situation is that Domus Academy has informed me after my payment of deposit that the course is postponed and will be starting in September 2012. I inquired at CIID and they are still happy to have me in their institute. Delaying almost a year for post graduation will affect my career plan but I am ready to it if Domus Academy has a marginal advantage over CIID.

So please let me have some suggestion from you regarding which of these institutes is better or are they at par to each other, so that I can take some decision.

Thanks a lot

I would go to CIID in a heartbeat. It is by far one of the best post graduate programs in Europe.

Thanks Dave!

Even though I missed your comment I chose to go to CIID and now I am done with my course. I think it was the best decision and would recommend CIID to anyone interested in Interaction Design. 

Cheers,

Hi Manasmdk,

I am interested in getting a Masters in IxD and have been hearing a lot about CIID. Ultimately I would like to work in the US as that is where my family is and was wondering if you could shed some light on career opportunities after CIID in US. Do US companies, especially tech (as I have worked on IxD at Samsung for portable devices), come to CIID to recruit? What are the stats like?

Thanks,
