Hello everyone !
I am Himank Nagpal from Gurgaon, India. I am a Graduate- Bachelor of Technology in Computer Engineering Currently I am working at Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. ( which is India’s largest car manufacturer) in IT division.
I am interested to pursue UI/UX design - majorly i am interested in UI- the look and feel- the aesthetics. I came across this website topuxschool.com and have been following that lately for getting formally educated- doing a Masters.
A major doubt i have is regarding the nomenclature and nature of programs offered in the US and elsewhere. In the US they seem to offer mostly M.Sc whereas in Europe it is M.Des or MFA as well.
- What exactly is the difference between those ?
- Are these degrees equivalent ?
- Do the students from both types of schools land in the same jobs ? Which degree is more artistically focussed ?
In my country, mostly M.Des is offered but the seats are very less, say around 100 total from reputed colleges , therefore i wanted to pursue a Masters from a reputed college from abroad and have been saving money for that. But i have been unable to actually be able to know about the exact nature of the courses even after browsing through a lot of curriculums .
I want to do a more studio focussed masters where it is more about art and practicality and less about theory and thesis.
After browsing a lot about colleges and degrees and courses and asking fro help from a few people and being unable to get a clear cut picture , i had an idea to mail Kai-Ting and ask about this to which she encouraged me to ask a question on this forum. Kindly help.
Thanks a ton
