Digital Design

About the Department

Within the Digital Design Department, we research as well as teach the design of digital technologies and services. We focus especially on the impact that digital design will have on society, the environment, and industry in domains such as the public sector, health care, welfare, and games. The central themes of the Digital Design research agenda are care, creativity, participation, data and AI. As IT is increasingly a part of everyday life, these themes are critical to society, the environment and industry in the future.  

The Digital Design Department applies critical, ethical, and sustainable perspectives to all aspects of IT in society to inform our design processes. Our research and teaching approaches are based on diversity, inclusiveness, interdisciplinarity, and collaboration.  

The Digital Design Department offers a BSc and MSc programme in Digital Design and Interactive Technologies and an MSc in Games with high relevance and employability. We maintain an organisational and physical infrastructure that supports interdisciplinary collaboration. We provide lab-based research and teaching facilities and contribute to an inspiring and sound work and study environment attracting highly qualified researchers and students.
