InterMedia – what does design do?

Designing means shaping something.
Designing means changing something.

When has design proven itself to be helpful?
When it supports our lives and offers us support. When it enables us to exchange thoughts and feelings and experience ourselves as a community. Design is only ever an impulse within a complex process.

The increasing significance of design in many areas together with rapid technological development has resulted in many questions within the broad field of design, for which there are not yet finished answers.

  • Do you want to research when and how other people react to communicative and design-based interventions?
  • Are you looking for new ways to achieve new, optimised design solutions?
  • Do you want to investigate the complex links between design processes?
  • Do you want to use the example of a research question you have selected yourself to develop more in-depth knowledge which will increase your opportunities on the employment market?

One of the objectives of this master’s degree programme is to find answers to questions that have as yet not been answered.

It is an open research and innovation platform, the objective of which is to generate and provide knowledge that is of general benefit.

Over the course of the four semesters of the master’s degree programme, you will:

  • research answers to these questions,
  • think and act at the same time,
  • test out concepts, theories and ideas in practice and
  • seek causal links in design areas, all within the fields you have chosen yourself.
