Course content

MRes Child Computer Interaction is a new and growing branch of Human Computer Interaction, and is the key area of expertise for the ChiCI research group at UCLan. Our expertise spans world-class research, commercial activity and knowledge-transfer. As the market for children's interactive technology grows there is an increasing need for specialists who can research, design and evaluate interactive technology for children. This postgraduate course is the first specialist research-based academic course offered in Child Computer Interaction. We aim to provide a challenging and stimulating environment in which students can develop specialist skills by working closely with the ChiCI research group. It is anticipated that students from this course will either continue to PhD study or go into employment as CCI specialists.
