Interaction Design is an interdisciplinary field merging design skills such as user experience, interface development and graphic design with programming to create meaningful experiences between the user and digital platforms such as social media, websites, tablets and smartphones.
Modelled by the psychological, social, economic, cultural and economic factors that shape our present and future world, this ever-evolving field envisions new ways of human-computer interaction within systems, services, products and spaces across multiple industries. With new software allowing for interaction through body movement and speech, designers need to stay current with the latest software and hardware advances.
Throughout this program, students will be expected to address such topics as augmented reality with spatial relations and semiotics to create original interactions in a way that is meaningful and practical.

Program Standards and Learning Outcomes
The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities has established Program Descriptions for college programs of instruction which do not operate under a specific provincial Program Standard. The Program Description typically describes the program purpose (a brief description of the program, potential employment opportunities and general admission requirements) and program goals (similar to program-level learning outcomes, which guide the curriculum).
