About

Faculty and students at Interaction Design program of Purdue University are boundary crossers, developing new approaches to explore the interaction possibilities in the context of industrial design.

Overview

Program Description

We are interested in studying cognitive and social systems that influence our knowledge, employing research methodologies to improve designs, and adopting innovative technologies to better accommodate human experience.

Based on our experience on design education and collaboration with the industry, we notice and understand the urgent needs of interaction design in the domain to shape everyday life. We look for creating the harmonious integration of both physical and virtual interactions in the product design. User experience design (UX) is the process of enhancing user satisfaction with a product by improving its usability, accessibility, and pleasure provided in the interaction with the product. The Interaction Design program of Purdue University emphasizes on investigating the problems taking place in the interaction and innovating the user experience through both the physical and virtual interactions.
