After the Master

Professionals graduating from the Master's of Science in Digital Design will be qualified to work in highly-interdisciplinary design teams in creative studios, startups, and companies or institutions that apply a “design thinking” approach.

Examples of professional roles that may be filled by alumni of the Master's programme in Digital Design include “Digital Design Strategist”, “User Researcher”, “Consultant in Design Thinking and Innovation”, “Design Team Leader”.

The Master's programme aims at teaching immediately-applicable skills that enable students to make a difference in professional settings directly after graduation, but it also recognises that digital design is ever-changing, and therefore aims at providing ‘future-proof’ skills. To ensure that graduates will remain up to speed in the years to come, the Master's programme in Digital Design follows a set of guiding principles:

  • a substantial connection to the digital design industry;
  • a flexible curriculum that can respond quickly to the latest innovations;
  • real-world projects developed, carried out and evaluated in close connection with industry partners;
  • elements of design theory and a constructivist didactic approach teaching students to ‘learn how to learn’.
