For designers and software developers wishing to deepen their knowledge and practice in user-centred design and usability evaluation of software enabled products. This may be software running on a desktop computer, PDA or mobile phone, or physical products with software enabled functionality. For good interaction design the interface must not only be effective and efficient, but increasingly should also be enjoyable and even pleasurable to use. This should be the case for users with a range of capacities operating in differing contexts. These are challenging goals!

The course enables students to: apply their knowledge and interaction design skills to novel interaction paradigms; make effective use of a broad range of design methods; obtain in-depth knowledge of developments in mobile, ubiquitous or wearable systems; and understand the commercial contexts in which interaction design takes place. There is lots of scope for students to follow their own interests within the course structure.
