Overview

Ongoing technological developments offer a wide range of opportunities for the creative industries. In the fundamental fields of the global market where creative industries can grow – design, film production, music, animation, interactive media, computer games, digital advertisement, gastronomy and cultural heritage – the creative industries need scholars and professionals who can use interdisciplinary thinking skills to develop new approaches for the utilization of technologies and digital products. 

All over the world, there is an expanding need for experts who can creatively manage the convergence of different communication platforms, who can analyze, anticipate and address the changing needs and expectations of individuals as consumers or as citizens.

More so than in the past, creative industries in today’s world comprise increasingly complex components and processes in terms of form, function, material and production. 

Consequently, it is becoming more important to acquire an interdisciplinary understanding of new concepts of the 21st century, such as interaction design, experience design, and service design.

The graduate program in Design, Technology and Society from Koc University which combines applied design, social and behavioral sciences, computation, and experimental design requires an extensive understanding of human cognition, emotions, and perceptions; of systems and informatics; of the history and philosophy of science; of technology, and information.
