Application for EU graduates until 30 September 2016

For Details see below. The deadline for Applicants who graduated outside of Europe allready expired.

About the Program

This international oriented 2-year master’s degree programme is based on the following pillars:
▪ The study of a range of topics within the field of human-computer interaction: usability, user-centred design and user interface testing and research, and innovative interface technologies such as virtual reality, mobile systems, adaptive systems, mixed reality, ubiquitous computing and graphic interfaces.
▪ Acquisition of key skills and competences through a project-based study approach.

In the English-language Human-Computer Interaction M.Sc. programme, students focus on theoretical and practical issues in current computer science research in the fields of user-centered design, interactive system development and evaluation. In addition, this technically-oriented HCI master offers the opportunity to participate in interdisciplinary projects and attend courses from Architecture and Urbanism, Art and Design, Media Studies and Media Management.

In general, our programme aims at people with a bachelor’s degree or minor in computer science. The medium of instruction for all mandatory courses is English. The program has received accreditation by Acquin until 30.09.2020 in April 2015.

More Information under https://www.uni-weimar.de/en/media/studies/computer-science-and-media-hci/human-computer-interaction-msc/

Program Structure

The programme comprises 120 ECTS, distributed into the following components:
▪ Four compulsory modules (Advanced HCI, Information Processing and Presentation, Virtual/Augmented Reality and Mobile HCI), each comprising 9 ECTS.
▪ Elective module (24 ECTS in total).
▪ Two research projects (15 ECTS each).
▪ The Master’s thesis module (30 ECTS).

In accordance with the Weimar Bauhaus model, research-oriented projects contribute towards a large proportion of the master’s programme. The elective modules allows students to incorporate courses from other degree programmes such as Media Studies, Media Management, Architecture and Urbanism, and Art and Design alongside the general Computer Science and Media course catalogue. Graded language courses up to 6 ECTS may also be included, or an additional HCI related project. The fourth and final semester is dedicated to the master’s thesis.

Further information on the curriculum : https://www.uni-weimar.de/en/media/studies/computer-science-and-media-hci/curriculum-master-hci/

Career Perspectives

The HCI Master was developed based upon our experiences with the long-standing Computer Science & Media Master program. CS&M graduates have all readily found employment in industry and academia, in R&D departments at large companies (e.g. Volkswagen, BMW), research institutes (e.g. Fraunhofer), as well as at universities, with many continuing into a PhD.

Usability is becoming more and more important for computer systems as computers are embedded in many aspects of everyday life. The ability to design complex systems and interfaces with regard to usability and appropriateness for the usage context increases in importance. HCI graduates can work both in software development, in particular in conception and development of novel interface technologies, and in the area of usability and user research, which both grow in demand on the job market. Our unique project-based study approach provides graduates with a skill set that qualifies them both for research and industry careers.

Studying in Weimar

The Bauhaus, the most influential design school in the 20th century, was founded in 1919 in our main building. A tie to this history was established in the renaming as Bauhaus-Universität Weimar in 1996. We are an international university in the unique, cultural city of Weimar. We are a vibrant institution, not a museum. Experimentation and excellence prevail throughout the 4 faculties where transdisciplinary projects and co-operations in research and education are conducted.

Weimar is a medium-sized city with UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites. It is known for its connection to literature, the arts and music and also has a music university. The affordable living costs in this area of Germany and the rich cultural program of Weimar make it a very attractive location for students.

The University of Liverpool Management School is one of an elite group of institutions worldwide to be AACSB-Accredited.

The MBA programme entered The Economist’s ‘Which MBA?’ top 100 global ranking in 2015.

If you’re looking to develop your skills as an effective manager and potential leader, then the Liverpool MBA is the programme for you. You’ll build a deeper understanding of core business and management disciplines and learn how they link together strategically and operationally.

The core elements of the programme – leadership, strategy, managing the environment, innovation, entrepreneurship, managing financial resources – are delivered in concentrated blocks to encourage a deeper understanding, with a strong emphasis on interactive teaching and learning.

You can choose from a number of optional modules which cover a range of business and management disciplines, including: marketing and branding, financial risk management, and operations and supply chain management. This allows you to specialise or develop greater breadth of knowledge. The broader skills you’ll acquire include analysis, problem solving, creativity and decision-making.

The Developing as a Manager and a Leader module will also serve to strengthen and hone your interpersonal, communication and leadership abilities – all of which will prepare you for success within the modern organisation. Theory, we believe, has most value when it can be seen working in practice, which is why live case studies and simulations are central to teaching and learning. You’ll also have a range of opportunities to work on real projects for sponsoring organisations through work based projects and the student-led consultancy service.

About the Course

This is a Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) course, also known as Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert).

If you are a graduate who would like to motivate and develop children’s computing/IT knowledge and skills and inspire them towards computing/computer science qualifications/career paths, then becoming a Computing/Computer Science teacher is an exciting and rewarding career option.

The Importance of Computing education

Computing education according to the new Computing Programme of Study (DfE, 2013) should enable pupils to: understand and change the world through computational thinking; think logically and with precision and apply underlying principles to understand real-world systems.

It should in general provide a broad understanding of both natural and artificial systems and forge substantial links with the teaching of other curricular subjects such as mathematics, design and technology. Furthermore, it should enable pupils to become digitally literate-so that they are able to use and express themselves through information and communication technology.

Therefore it is both a challenging and exciting time to be able to enthuse and teach pupils about information and computation principles; designing and programming digital systems and the use of IT to create products and solutions.

Our approach

The PGCE Secondary Computer Science and Information and Communications Technology (CS-ICT) Course at Brunel University London, draws on outstanding expertise and experience in Education to build upon your commitment to the teaching profession and the subject area. In a combined effort with our partnership schools we prepare you to teach computing, i.e. computer science, digital literacy and information technology to pupils in secondary school.

We support you in developing skills in planning lessons, adopting and implementing learning and behaviour management strategies, in order that you become an effective Computing/IT classroom teacher. We also encourage critical thinking, exploration and discussions about the new Computing curriculum, its implementation and adoption in schools; the teaching of computing and the challenges and opportunities it presents.

There is also a strong emphasis on collaborative learning/work in the course i.e. students are encouraged to work together and learn from each other.

We promote the use of paired placements to enhance the experience for student teachers, wherever possible. In addition these collaborative skills are developed further and extended through cross-curricular workshops/tasks with other subject-students on the PGCE course and other subject-teachers in schools. In doing so, we work actively to seek ways of promoting the integration and use of ICT across the curriculum.

During the course you will be provided the opportunity to teach in two placement schools enabling you to gain experiences of teaching Computing/IT at Key Stage 3 and 4 and for qualifications at post-sixteen. While the university-based study will consist of seminars, workshops, lectures, demonstrations, peer-led sessions and research activities.

Funding
