About

The User Experience Design and IT Architecture programme offered by Jönköping University will equip you with knowledge and skills to tackle these challenges. You will learn user experience design, IT architecture and enterprise architecture. You will be able to design and develop mobile and server-side solutions, as well as learn to master the fundamentals of service design and cloud computing. 

Personal devices such as tablets, smartphones, and wearables are replacing desktop computers at the workplace and in the home. Work is often done on the go, in a mobile and ever-changing environment – switching from one device to another and moving first from the office to the bus stop, and then home. 

Since the emergence of the iPhone, user experience design has become central to making our interactions with all kinds of digital devices functional, productive, and inspiring – thus raising expectations when we use business IT systems. IT architectures fuel cross-channel, mobile, and cloud-based solutions. Companies and individuals move their data to the cloud, they use software as a service (SaaS), and they engage both socially and commercially via the Internet. Meanwhile, in the workplace, manufacturers have introduced intelligent robotics to automate production.

After graduation

With this Master's degree you will be prepared to work in various roles such as user experience designer, interaction designer, information architect, IT architect or IT strategist, cloud solution architect, or enterprise architect. You will also be prepared for doctoral studies.
