This is a first subject in HCI, Human Computer Interaction. It is designed for students who want to be involved in one of the many roles required to create future technology. There are three main parts: the human foundations from psychology and physiology; HCI methods for design and evaluation of interfaces; leading edge directions for technologies. This subject is highly multi-disciplinary. At the core, it is a mix of Computer Science and Software Engineering combined with the design discipline, UX - User Experience. It draws on psychology, both for relevant theories and user study methods. The practical work is a human-centred group project that motivates the formal curriculum.
