Academic Programs: Master of Science in Informatics
Workload: 6 ECTS
This class aims at familiarizing students with both the theory behind the discipline of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and the practical process of user experience (UX) design. Students not only develop an awareness and appreciation of the crucial implications of good interfaces in terms of overall system performance and user satisfaction, but also learn core skills needed in order to identify user requirements, envision interfaces and processes, and evaluate competing design options. Students will work in small teams of 3-5 to drive a design project from start to finish. Core skills are introduced in hands-on classes, interspersed with lectures and discussions about the underlying theory.
