About Human-Computer Interaction
Masters degrees in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) equip postgraduates with the skills to design and optimise the interactions between computer systems and their human users.
Taught MSc courses are typical for this field, though research-centred MRes and MPhil programmes are also available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a suitable subject, such as Computer Science.
The purpose of HCI is to improve modern living, by focusing on and developing the interfaces between people and systems. As such, you will analyse the design, functions and uses of computer and mobile technology, including assistive technology and digital health and wellness systems.
Training is provided in testing user performance, preferences and experience of these systems, and responding by developing interfaces through user-centred development. You will assess computer architectures, engineering systems, cognition technologies and web applications to prototype different computing systems for creative and inclusive design.
Careers in this field are extremely varied; your skills and expertise would be suited to a range of roles across numerous industries. For example, you could develop interfaces for systems such as intellectual property (IP), transportation networks, or gaming.
