Course summary

Design informatics combines data science with design thinking in a context of critical enquiry and speculation.

The central premise of design informatics is that data is a medium for design: by shaping data, we shape the world around us. Data science provides the groundwork for this, with design thinking underpinning reflective research through design.

We build a value-aware, reflective practice at the interface between data and society by combining theory and research with an open-ended process of making and hacking.

What will I learn?

You will use the above concepts in working with:

  • the internet of things and physical computing
  • machine learning
  • speech and language technology
  • usable privacy and security
  • data ethics
  • blockchain technologies

Career opportunities

This degree will put you at the cutting edge of the intersection between data science, design, and information technology. This will open a host of opportunities to work with companies, charities, and the public sector. We encourage entrepreneurship.

For those who wish to deepen their research practice, the programme provides a solid foundation for a PhD in related areas.
