Advanced Product Design 120 ECTS The Master’s programme in Advanced Product Design offers a solutiondriven education that focuses on the advanced treatment of design, using user-studies, problem identification and analysis, new technologies and materials, and above all, an emphasis on innovation and new thinking, to find the best possible solution for a given problem or identified design opportunity, based on a solid foundation of professional tools and analytical and creative work methods. The programme is project-based and often carried out in collaboration with industrial partners, research units or local authorities. Most projects concern problems that the students identify themselves with an emphasis on problems that have not already been solved countless times by others. The programme prepares students to work as professional designers either in consultancies or in-house design departments. Graduated students are frequently employed by international design offices and major corporations worldwide.

The Master programme in Immediate Architectural Intervention is structured around the idea of architectural intervention, explored in relationship to its duration and effects in and around the community where it takes place. While the programme’s approach can be related to certain artistic practices, it is rooted in an understanding of spatial conceptualization and production as the architect’s most important skill. The programme explores the possibilities of architectural practices which conceive and articulate diverse processes of community development and transformation. The ”sites” of these interventions in the public sphere are in general, not given, and their ’construction’ includes involvement with other institutions, governmental agencies and other actors. The projects are often developed in non-western environments, which makes cultural understanding and research also essential to the programme.

Interaction Design 120 ECTS The Master programme in Interaction Design deals with the relation between people and information technology with particular focus on the interaction between product and user. We see the discipline of Interaction Design as the ability to design both the cognitive and physical interface and integrate them into a successful whole. Our aim is to enable designers to create sustainable, comprehensible and pleasurable information based products, services and environments. Courses are given in a range of subjects including Human-Computer Interaction, Graphic Design, Contextual Enquiry and Experience Prototyping. Interface prototyping tools, scenario techniques and user studies are consistently applied in project work. Experienced designers present case studies. This study programme is about people rather than technology. Scandinavia has a long tradition of user-centered research focusing on the relationship between people and technical systems. Actively involving users in design projects is a central feature of the Interaction Design Programme. Emphasis is placed on user involvement in the design process and iterative prototype evaluation.

Sustainable Architectural Production 120 ECTS The Master’s programme in Sustainable Architectural Production explores sustainable architecture in a holistic way including cultural, social and economic sustainability. In design studio we propose that all spatial decisions, at all architectural scales, are connected in a consistent way: from urban planning to building design, to material decisions in architectural details, advanced testing and simulation analysis, to client participation and post occupancy studies; then we can start to discuss architecture as sustainable. The conceptualization and development of new structures in cooperation with industry and the development of innovative and radical strategies towards sustainability are an important part of the educational programmes and supplement to the theoretical basis. Given the fact that architecture is an international discipline the career of an architect is borderless. There is a need for knowledge about sustainable architectural strategies in various places in the world. As an architect educated at Umeå School of Architecture (accordingly to the EU Directive of Professional Qualifications) you will have skills to work with private and public organizations, local companies and industries in various countries and cultures.
