Experience Design

Our interdisciplinary program trains students to harness a holistic and integrative research-based approach to design. We experiment with design based on an orchestration of events involving multiple dimensions (physical, digital, organizational, sensorial, etc.), and focus on human goals, needs, and desires to mediate concrete situations.
