This course is delivered by the internationally renowned Centre for Human-Computer Interaction Design (HCID) and is suitable for those with a wide variety of backgrounds in either academic or practical computing.
City University London's MSc Human-Centred Systems will equip you with the latest research, theories and techniques in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) with which to design, implement and evaluate interactive systems and technologies, including web-based information systems and applications, mobile devices and multi-touch tabletops. Its curriculum is based on leading-edge academic research to offer an intellectually stimulating course relevant to the workplace now and beyond. After attending this course, you will have excellent knowledge and skills for:
The app is being developed as part of the EU-fundet Mirror project to support emergency workers to think creatively during training for maxi-emergencies, i.e. large-scale emergencies such as floods, forest fires and earthquakes. In April 2013 a new version of the app was evaluated by medical emergency workers for 48 hours during a large-scale flood simulation in the Cuneo Valley of Northern Italy. The app integrates information about medical procedures and guidance with creativity support and capabilities for recording, sharing and reflecting on new ideas to improve medical treatments in emergencies. This evaluation revealed the potential of the app in maxi-emergency situations.
Renato Fillinich, a student on the Human-Centred Systems Masters participated in the flood simulation as a member of the app development team. He deployed knowledge skills learned in modules about creativity, interaction design, and evaluating interactive systems to elicit feedback and refine the app designOverview
European Economic Area tuition fee is applicable to the students from EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.)
No prior exposure to the topics of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) or User-Centred Design (UCD) is necessary. The course will provide you with skills in designing and evaluating interactive systems and other types of computer-based systems in which people are a major element. You will acquire skills in advanced human-computer interaction design, requirements analysis and design, designing and conducting complex evaluations of new or existing software computing systems and expertise in designing and evaluating systems for people with disabilities and the elderly. You will benefit from being able to use the Interaction Lab, established originally with the support of the Vodafone UK Foundation. The Lab is equipped with the latest technologies including eye-trackers, interactive tabletops and setups to evaluate mobile devices.Course Structure
