After the Master

Master Digital Design

Professionals graduating from the Master's programme in Digital Design qualify to work in highly-interdisciplinary design teams in creative studios, start-ups and companies or institutions.

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, and Design Team Leader.

At the Master's programme we value applicable skills that enable students to make a difference in professional settings directly after their graduation, but we also recognise that digital design is an ever-changing field and therefore we aim to provide future-proof skills. To ensure that graduates stay 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 that teaches students to ‘learn how to learn’.
