Study HCI in the Networking and Services Program

Human-computer interaction (HCI) is a discipline concerned with the design, evaluation and implementation of interactive computing systems for human use and with the study of major phenomena surrounding them (ACM SIGCHI 1996).

HCI is a combination of science, engineering, and design. HCI focuses on the joint performance of tasks by humans and machines; the communication between human and machine; human capabilities; interface programming; the process of specification, design, and implementation of interfaces; and design trade-offs.
There are several courses on HCI available in the Computer Science Department provided by the Interactive Systems research group (more course details avaliable here):
  • Human-Computer Interaction (6 credits, 4th period)
    If you can not attend the course here, the Human-Computer Interaction course by Stanford University – available at Coursera -  contains similar topics. Contact the course lecturer for more details on this.
  • Interface Technologies (6 credits,  1st and 2nd period)
    This master level course will extend the skills acquired during the bachelor level HCI course.
  • Interactive Systems (6 credits, 3rd and 4th period)
    This master level course will provide students with in-depth knowledge of issues in the design, implementation and evaluation of interactive systems. Students will also be given the opportunity to develop a state-of-the-art interactive system in a teamwork assignment.
