So I’m going to do a Master study in Human Computer Interaction. HCI is a study targeted to make students into professionals in the field of, eh, Human Computer Interaction. You might say that the students will become “Interface Designers”, but I think this description will be a bit too narrow. Anyway, I’ll learn how to make (computer-) systems a lot more user friendly.
How? Well, by doing a lot of work. I’ll take 60 units in both the Fall and Spring semester, and another 48 in the Summer semester. That’s right. No summer holidays for me this year. :(
Anyway, it’ll probably be interesting and fun :). There are courses in broadly three categories: design, programming and psychology. And of course several “special purpose” HCI courses, and a really big capstone project in which it all comes together.
I’ll put a list of all my courses and projects on this blog, and post info about them regularly.
