Interaction designers are to the digital economy what product designers are in the old economy. On the basis of psychological and marketing theories, they gather insights into customer needs and beliefs and integrate those findings into the software development process via experience maps, user scenarios, mockups or other suitable tools.

Orientation Semester

At CODE, the assessment will take place throughout our Orientation Semester. At the beginning, we will ask you for a self-assessment of your existing competences. You will then be assigned to three different projects. In each of these projects, you will have a different role (once as software engineer, once as interaction designer and once as product manager) and assume responsibility according to your self-assessment. That is why you should carefully consider how you would assess your existing competences, since it is not much fun to totally struggle with the assigned responsibility, nor to be bored during the project.

Making you play the part of a software engineer, an interaction designer and a product manager not only allows us to verify the existing self-assessment of your competences but also lets you gain a better understanding of the importance, the details and the characteristics of each role which in turn should make you a better team player in future projects.

Your career choices

With a trained grasp of design concepts and practical implementation competence, you will be responsible for the look, feel and user-friendliness of the software you are working on. You will be able to create low-fidelity sketches and pixel-perfect mockups, validate different designs and style approaches by conducting split A/B tests and measuring product performance. Because you will be the joining bolt in a team of marketers, product managers, coders and other stakeholders, you will master an empathetic and cooperative style of communication. As an interaction designer, you don’t just make things that work look pretty. You are responsible for the alignment with customer interests and therefore the success of your digital project.

We will not tell you, what (or who) you will be after graduating at CODE – this decision will be totally up to you. But to give you an idea, we recommend you head over to for some very interesting interviews with interaction designers from the digital economy.
