DESIGN INFORMATICS This Case Study provides insight in a Masters degree that translates education molded to harness for future change within the economy. â€œWe can harness massive connectivity, analytic power and industrial-strength simulation to design tangible products and intangible services to transform the ways we work, live at home, care for each other, and play.â€? Design Informatics is a Masters focuses on designing with data (Design Informatics, 2017). In a world where value is not only being generated by physical artifacts, design is shifting.
