Course content

The MSc in Human-centred Interactive Technologies provides participants with a thorough grounding in the design and evaluation of interactive technologies from the perspective of the human user(s).

It is aimed at graduates with a first degree in a computing discipline who wish to develop knowledge and skills in this area before undertaking industrial work or further academic study. However, we will also consider applicants who have significant, relevant work experience since graduating.

The unique emphasis of the MSc in Human-Centred Interactive Technologies course is on developing an understanding of users' capabilities and requirements, including users with particular requirements (such as older and disabled users, or users in a diversity of cultural settings) and developing a range of techniques to produce interactive technologies that best suit their capabilities and requirements.
