Requirements and User Experience

Bachelor's level | 7.5 credits | Course code: DIT045

The course is not given as a stand-alone course this academic year, but can be included in the program/course package. For information contact the department.

About the Course

The course provides students with an introduction to the field of requirements
engineering and user experience. It starts by providing a solid foundation by defining
key concepts like goals, requirements and specifications. It also presents the process of
identifying and documenting the requirements of a software product. Emphasis is also
given to quality requirements.
The second part of the course focuses on usability aspects. The course will focus on
integrating the requirements gathered in the first part with more design-oriented
requirements gathered as part of a user-centric design process (for example, via
interviews and the use of personas). The course also presents elements of visual design
and information design, for instance, how to include aspects of user experience in the
design of a software product. Further, the course touches upon methods of prototyping
(for example, digital mockups) and presents some techniques to evaluate the usability of
a software product (for instance, via user studies). Finally, the course will provide
students with hands-on experience in designing and developing graphical user interface
(GUI) programs.
