BACHELOR OF SCIENCE

HUMAN-COMPUTER INTERACTION DEGREE

MOVING INTERACTIONS AND INTERFACES INTO THE FUTURE

Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is an interdisciplinary field that attracts researchers, educators and practitioners from many different disciplines. HCI has gained even more attention during recent years as technologies have moved forward at an accelerating pace. Human-Computer Interaction has its foundations on the interfaces and interactions between electronic devices and the users that rely upon them, that will ultimately lead to the creation of tomorrow's new user interface software and technology.

One current expression of human computer interaction design focuses on user experience design. The importance of using design principles to create a positive and lasting user experience is incredibly important as devices become smaller, services become more integrated and seamless and the focus of interaction is contextual, proactive and need based.

DEGREE OBJECTIVES

  • Gain an understanding and articulate the fundamental design concepts and practices associated with the design of human-computer interactions.
  • Evaluate the impact of new and emerging technology trends on human-computer interactions and the user experience.
  • Evaluate the impact of domains of emerging concern such as security, authentication, identification and automation on the design of user experience and human-computer interaction.
  • Analyze human factors such as cognition, affect and behavior as they relate to the human-computer interaction and apply them in the development of human-computer interactions.
  • Synthesize and evaluate sound design principles and aesthetics as they apply to the design of innovative interfaces.
  • Prototype and produce innovative interfaces or interactions for at least two of the following: web, PC, mobile, handheld or next generation platforms, including all production materials required in complete pipeline using industry standard tools, software and production processes.
