About

Find out more information about Human Computer Interaction

Human-computer interaction deals with the construction and implementation of interfaces and tool-building technologies that would adapt seamlessly to people?s needs. Human-computer interaction focuses on creating simplified interfaces to achieve the best satisfaction for various types of users. To do so, professionals analyse the tasks users need to perform and determine what changes they need to make to make their job easier. Interfaces used in the human computer interaction field integrate auditory systems like sound and speech recognition as well as visual elements like graphic animations, and other state of the art technology.

Programmes in human computer interaction combine theories from computer science, ergonomics, psychology, cognitive sciences and linguistics.

Disciplines similar to human computer interaction include: robotics, materials engineering, or user experience design.

Students enrolled in human computer interaction programmes will learn principles of cognition and perception that will help them design effective user interfaces. They will develop their data-collecting and troubleshooting skills and gain an understanding of possible issues that may come up when interacting with specialised technology or software. Students will also learn elements of visual design for developing programme prototypes and will acquire basic research skills.

Graduates can find jobs in the field of human computer interaction as: usability engineers, information architects, interaction and interface designers, web designers, UX designers, visual analysts, and interaction architects.
