Additional information

Interaction design focuses on how people engage with all forms of digital technology, including mobile devices, collaborative interfaces, and global networks. Interaction designers are creative problem-solvers who find new ways to integrate technology into our lives – by creating new products, developing better applications, and generating more compelling content.

During the fourth year, students will complete a variety of projects (both individual and team-based) to develop a body of work that demonstrates their creativity, communication skills, and technological savvy.

This wide-ranging program is as adaptable as technology itself. Students will develop advanced technological literacy and use it to express their own ideas and creativity.

Program benefits include:

  • Interaction design
  • Visual communication
  • Process/Planning
  • Interactive media/computation
  • Business, including entrepreneurial practice, professionalism and leadership

Graduates from the interaction design bachelor’s degree program should enjoy excellent employment prospects. Employers increasingly look for independent thinkers and creative leaders who can work across boundaries, rather than plugging into a predefined niche. Interaction design graduates will be equipped to create their own jobs, launch their own businesses, or take the lead in new industries that may not even exist yet — but will in five years.

Honours Bachelor of Interaction Design courses are held at the Trafalgar Road Campus in Oakville, Ontario.
