After your graduation

For the Data-driven Designer, data analysis is not a final goal, but rather a means to create innovative concepts that create value within a digital society.
This programme is developed in response to a strong demand from businesses themselves, as well as global developments. Public and private organizations are constantly confronted with the promises and perils of big data, machine learning and its implementation in technologies such as conversational agents, adaptable interfaces, and personalization. In recent years, the need for professionals with hands-on experience with these new technologies, as well as the ability to critically reflect on how these technologies affect individuals user and society, increased drastically.

The competences you’ll develop
This programme is demanding, so you need to be willing and able to put in the work.
Tech-savvy, roughly a fifth of the curriculum is about technology, programming, and data science, so you need to have an affinity with digital technology.
We encourage cool ideas but find it more important that you are able to set up and run a creative process from research and analysis, towards solutions and prototypes.
As you will be working closely with fellow students, teaching staff and professionals, you need to be socially confident.
As about 20 hours per week are spent on self-study and preparation, you will need the drive to motivate yourself.
