About

A good design is a reflection of the designer’s creative skills combined with innovation and technological potential. It is also one that seamlessly blends in with its cultural and social contexts. This holistic approach to the design process lies at the heart of the Inclusive Design-Health and Social Well Being programme at Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice.

Overview

As a student, you will not only develop your creative skills, but also gain the confidence to take up and tackle bold design challenges. You will be encouraged to experiment and learn how to cooperate with the future recipients of your creative ideas – services, applications, and devices. The Inclusive Design-Health and Social Well Being programme at Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice is a unique two-year master's degree program that offers you the opportunity of working with key experts in the field – for example designers from The Helen Hamlyn Centre For Design – as well as leading design studios in Poland and abroad that use the Inclusive Design methodology.

Career opportunities

As a student in this program, you will acquire several practical skills that can greatly impact your job prospects. We will go far beyond the scope of design to teach you how to define and solve problems, coordinate complex projects and thrive in interdisciplinary teams.

What can you do once you graduate? Here are a few examples of careers our students are happy to pursue:

  • Graphic designer,
  • Process designer,
  • Social designer,
  • User Experience Designer,
  • Researcher,
  • Design consultant.

A wide range of professional opportunities will open up for you. The knowledge and practical skills you will gain, as well as the design tools we will provide you with, open the doors to a career in numerous well-established companies, start-ups or design and research teams. You may even want to set up your design studio.

Programme Structure

  • Integrated product design

In this laboratory, you will find out what a systemized design process is all about and how to design products. Our main focus here is creativity and innovations, but we also prioritize sustainability, the natural environment and a responsible approach to design – one that takes into consideration the long term influence a designer has on the environment.  

  • Research and interaction design

You will deepen your knowledge of user interface design, virtual reality, and mixed reality here. Perception, semantics, interaction – these are the key areas we will explore together in this lab. 

  • Social design

Designing involves responsibility. New services, products, and systems of visual identification can transform the surroundings. They can initiate new behaviors and trigger innovations. In this lab, you will find out how to engage potential users in the creative process.
