5 unique graduate programs you didn’t know FIT offered
As you plan your next adventure, have you ever considered the following graduate programs?
Our master’s degree in Human-Centered Design is changing the paradigm of how engineers approach new technology creation. Historically, mechanical engineers leveraged technology and built an interface for humans to interact with it. It’s actually less about making the human mold to the technology, but making the technology mold to the human and how we organically think and move in relation to our surroundings. The most obvious example to illustrate this design concept is the iPad. Its design is so intuitive to how humans interact with it that even a two-year old can pick it up and quickly start to navigate through its various features.
