  Interaction design is concerned with creating new relationships between intangible information and individuals and groups in society. Rapidly evolving international digital communication networks are playing an increasingly important role in all aspects of daily life. In response to these developments, the Department of Interaction Design aims to foster a new type of creator who is not limited by the traditional divisions between the fine arts, science, and engineering.
Consequently, the curriculum is divided into two courses: the Media and Art Course and the Information Design Course. Students in each course can choose from three studios which focus on different areas of expertise. However, to produce practitioners with a comprehensive viewpoint, students in both courses collaborate through common lecture classes and joint projects.

Curriculum

Media and Art Course
By acquiring interrelated skills encompassing the fields of art, science, and technology, students learn to explore new modes of expression afforded by the electronic media, such as digital imaging, sound synthesis, computer networks, robotics, and virtual reality technologies.
The course encourages students to integrate their discoveries in personal ways and they may express their ideas in a variety of forms, for example media/information art, net art, sound art, installation, or performance.

Interaction Design Course
Through analysis of the nature of information and communication, students investigate the theory and practice of design with the aim of realizing the full potential of information Interaction technology.
During the course, students develop a wide-raging knowledge of art, human behavior, society, and engineering while developing their sensibility as designers. Course projects include designing for web sites, television, cell phone services, and 'intelligent' products. Students also carry out research into the development of interaction networks.
