The overall aim of the course is to gain an increased
understanding, awareness and experience of how sound can be
utilized to enhance the design experience of a product solution's
form language and user interface.
Through a series of smaller exercies the course
introduces hard- and software skills related to both creative and
technical aspects of creating sound designs and how to manipulate
and further develop these.
The course ends with a two-week group assignment where Advanced
Product Design students and Interaction Design students collaborate
across programmes on project themes of their own choice.
