Design solutions that do not exclude anyone and also enable people with a handicap to lead a self-determined life are becoming increasingly important in an open society. Until now, the four-semester oriented course of study at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences (Frankfurt UAS) was called “Barrier-free Systems” (BaSys). Now, on July 11, the new interdisciplinary master’s program “Inclusive Design” will present itself online from 12 to 2 p.m.. The aim of the course is to help people with complex assistance and care needs to become more independent, relying on digital solutions, barrier-free living concepts and assistive technologies.

In the so-called Interdisciplinary Project (IPR), students from three disciplines work together to develop and research inclusive solutions, whereby spatial, technical and social aspects are taken into account in equal measure when designing livable environments. The IPR comprises slightly more than one third of the degree program. In addition, there are subject-specific modules from the fields of architecture (major in “Inclusive Architecture”), computer science and engineering (major in “Intelligent Systems”), and social work and health (major in “Digital Health and Case Management”).

At the online info event, the study program “Inclusive Design” is presented with all its focal points. An interdisciplinary student project (IPR) will be presented as an example, and alumni will report on their everyday professional life. Applications for the winter semester 2022/23 are still possible until September 15. Interested parties can request the dial-in data for the Zoom meeting here.
