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

You will study both theoretical and practical parts of Human-Centered Design (HCD). The theoretical part presents the history and development of HCD from research to industrial applications. Relevant design theories and processes, such as user-centered design, rational unified process, ecological interface design and design of products for leisure and entertainment are covered. Literature seminars provide additional theoretical grounding and reflection, as well as different industrial practical experience where speakers representing different types of companies are invited. The practical parts consist of laboratory work with usability evaluation methods and carrying out an investigation project at industry. The industrial project will emphasize how to investigate existing design process and usability problems in products, how to implement a HCD process in a specific company, and how to motivate potential benefits of the usability concept and human-centered design process in industry.
