Human-Computer Interaction and Design (HCID)

Thematic description:


New ICT technologies are transforming our daily lives. Smart devices (mobile phones, PDAs, tablet computers), smart products (car, navigation) and smart environments (ambient intelligence) are enabling new services such as navigation, information providing, learning, making reservations or buying of goods.

Increasingly, the interaction with these devices is not through simple buttons or keystrokes but with more flexible and intuitive interaction methods such as multi-touch, speech, gestures, and with advanced display systems such as augmented and virtual reality.

 Smart devices and services are also able to show intelligent behavior recognizing intentions of the user and anticipating the user‘s needs. These technologies are central in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

However, the design of intuitive user interfaces is not only a matter of the right technology but also a matter of good interaction design. The track on “Human-Computer Interaction and Design” (HCID) focuses on the study, design, development and evaluation of novel user interfaces and interactive systems taking into account human aspects, at the cognitive and sensory-motor levels, technological aspects, as well as business aspects.

Career opportunities:

Graduates from this track will qualify for jobs in international and local organizations. Typical titles can be interaction or user experience designer, interactive systems engineer, human factors expert, usability engineer, business developer, product manager, or consultant.

 Through their multidisciplinary attitude graduates are valuable in open innovation settings where different aspects (users, social aspects, media technologies) come together.  They will easily find jobs within companies that provide value-added products and services, such as telecom companies, game companies, e-learning, web developers, and entertainment. An alternative path would be that they start their own company to provide product or technology development, media content, or consultancy services.
