We are now living in the future of 20 years ago. Could we ever have imagined how large a part modern media and technology would play in society and our daily lives today? What is the impact of new technology exactly? And what will the world look like in 2050? How can you acquire insight into a future world, when it's impossible to predict what will happen next? By taking your creative talents and assumptions and using them as a starting point for research. This is precisely what you do in The Future of Technology & Society.

During the semester you will work with an intercultural and interdisciplinary team on a project involving new technology. As part of the project, you will design innovative concepts for a client that aims to solve current or future societal issues. To do so, you will have to think critically about the effects of technology on our society, analyse the public response to these technologies and persuade people to start using them in their daily life. You don't need a background in technology. 

Outcomes

The programme gives you insight on the influence of technology on society and how you can use that knowledge together with Design Thing to create solutions for future problems. You'll learn how to prototype your ideas in a structure fashion. The results will be shared to an audience during a small symposium. 

Available for
