MSc in Information Technology - Product Design

Why study ITPD?
Intelligent products of the future will change the work and play of people. To do this requires empathy and responsibility on the part of designers to envision these changes. It requires a critical and open-minded attitude. It requires competencies beyond traditional engineering and computer science to engage in a multidisciplinary team for the development of successful products and services which benefit the world.

IT Product Design educates such designers.
