Dr Cho has stepped up as Interim Programme Director of MSc in Disability, Design and Innovation for 2021/22. This Master’s programme is hosted by University College London (UCL) – a global top 10 university – and delivered in collaboration with Loughborough University London (LUL) and University of the Arts London (UAL). The programme is uniquely sitting at the leading edge of disability innovation, helping students to become a pioneer in disability innovation and a specialist in assistive technology and inclusive design. One of the strengths of the programme is its diversity, which values students from computer science, occupational therapy, user experience design, international development, human computer interaction, product design, neuroscience, diplomatic service, medicine, disability activism and many other disciplines.
It is noteworthy that the programme is run at the ground-breaking UCL East campus (UCL in East London). UCL East is “bringing together UCL academics, students, local communities and industry to solve the biggest challenges affecting people’s lives and the planet – today and into the future“. Our brand new cutting-edge building at UCL East is expected to open in 2022. Applications for MSc DDI 2022/23 are open (closing date: 31 Mar 2022): https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/taught-degrees/disability-design-and-innovation-msc
