PURPOSE
That the student can independently, systematically and critically through the application of scientific theory and method formulate, analyze and contribute to the solution of a current research problem within Interaction Design

University degrees are research-based degrees; all students must gain in-depth insight into the current research problem and methods in the master's program, so that this insight can be applied in solving problems within research

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • document in-depth knowledge of and overview of a current problem within research in interaction design and its possible solutions

Skills

  • apply and create theories within the subject area in connection with the formulation of and analysis and solution of a problem within research in interaction design
  • convey a current issue in interaction design, a contribution to its solution and the associated conceptual framework within the framework of the research area

Competences

  • apply the concepts and reasoning within the subject area to formulate, analyze and contribute to the solution of a problem within a current issue within research in interaction design
