1 December 2020 23:55
This exciting new MA is a Dual award in collaboration with Kyoto Institute of Technology, Japan and aims to develop designers of transdisciplinary global practice with the ability to apply and evolve design methods and practices to seemingly unique and complex problems. The programme supports the exploration and practice of new design empathies, and supported and encouraged by the very nature of this International and cross geo-cultural educational experience thus moving beyond and challenging stereotypical western approaches and methodologies.
The programme proposes designers as the essential creative ‘glue’ in diverse multidisciplinary teams through their ability to think critically & act practically, connecting the ostensibly unconnected, recognising the relationship and value of the local & the global, the importance of speculation & practice and thus providing the catalyst for innovation.
A community of students, academics, practitioners and researchers strategically seeking to work innovatively, globally, beyond traditional sectors, beyond our creative borders, to engage with new audiences and industry partners in health, technology, science as well and emerging fields, aiming to demonstrate and explore the substantial contribution design can make in challenging paradigms, speculating on futures, influencing policy, prototyping propositions and subsequently playing a key role in supporting the generation of innovative solutions to some of the key societal issues now and in the future.
