Master of Design in User Experience Design at SID is a very unique and state of the art programme. This is a full time programme, which touches various aspects of Designing for Humans and Experiences. Design is the intermediary between information and understanding. To understand Experience in technology one has to design an affordance bridge.
Masters in User Experience Design aims to create a unique balance and combination between different design disciplines. Our approach gives a complete immersive education emphasizing on continuous explorations and design by practice.
This program will enable students to understand various aspects of design disciplines right from Product Design to Visual Semantics, moving images and how sound can tie down these element in order to generate an engaging interaction between User and System. Eventually, students will be able to create systems, which can trigger human sensing capabilities.
The ability to reason that assesses the problem and analyzes the possibilities for solution. It is the analytical process that relies on method and logic to assess, refine, and verify its various hypotheses. At SID, this reflects in the evaluation methods of the student's project based assignments on the basis of daily performances. We think very highly of introspective aspect of design education and encourage same through our faculty mentors.
