Human Computer Interaction and Design (HCID)
The programme in Human Computer Interaction and Design focuses on study, design, development and evaluation of novel user interfaces and interactive systems taking into account human aspects, at the cognitive and sensory-motor levels, technological aspects, as well as business aspects.
Achieving the right user experience is important for marketing products and services and a necessary component for commercial success, as is witnessed nowadays in the smart phone market. Knowing how to translate interactive services into business opportunities and into attractive products is strategic.
