    HCID EIT ICT Labs Master Programme

    Human Computer Interaction and Design The programme in Human Computer Interaction and Design focuses on study, design, development and evaluation of novel user interfaces and interactive systems taking into account human aspects, at the cognitive and sensory-motor levels, technological aspects, as well as business aspects.

    The HCID programme is an interdisciplinary programme that offers courses on design and evaluation of interactive systems with a strong emphasis on user-centered design techniques: understanding the human capacities and consequences of using information technology as a tool for solving work related tasks, and developing and evaluating the systems by putting the user at the center of the design process. In addition, the programme will create a business thinking in terms of user profiles, user segments, house style, branding, and market development and product introductions.

    Achieving the right user experience is important for marketing products and services and a necessary component for commercial success, as is witnessed nowadays in the smart phone market. Knowing how to translate interactive services into business opportunities and into attractive products is strategic.

    Graduates from the HCID masters programme will qualify for jobs in international and local organizations in both technical and business roles. Through their multidisciplinary attitude graduates are valuable in open innovation settings where different aspects (market, users, social aspects, media technologies) come together.

    Specialisations Specialisations are provided during the second year. The HCID programme offers seven specialisations (given at seven different universities) that all reflect the fact that Human-Computer Interaction has moved away from traditional desktop-based interfaces towards implicit and ubiquitous multimodal interaction paradigms.

    To meet the requirements for geographic mobility, the chosen exit point needs to differ from the chosen entry point. The specialisations cover:

    Mobile and Ubiquitous Interaction at KTH User Modeling for Advanced Human-Computer Interaction at Aalto University Situated Interaction at Univ. Paris-Sud Multimodal Interaction at TU Berlin Intelligent Systems at University of Twente Affective Computing at UCL Cognitive Interaction at UNITN

    Mobile and Ubiquitous Interaction (KTH Royal Institute of Technology)

    Konrad Tollmar is an Associate Professor at The Royal Institute of Technology. His main research interest is in Human-Computer Interaction, perceptual interfaces, and mobile media. Currently he leads the Mobile Service Lab at KTH / ICT / CoS within the area of mobile infrastructure and mobile services. Prior to this, he worked at MIT and The Interactive Institute. His most recent research has also expanded into market research and analysis as a research director at the Institute for Economic Research at Lund University.

    Cristian Bogdan is Associate Professor at KTH- Royal Institute of Technology. His main research interests are in Human-Computer Interaction, developing novel methods for interaction design, design for user understanding of novel technologies such as electric vehicles and smart grids, as well as new methodologies and technologies for interactive systems development. Cristian worked previously at the Vienna University of Technology with interface modelling and at the Interactive Institute with physical interaction.

    KTH offers a specialisation in mobile and ubiquitous interaction with courses in design, development and implementation of mobile and physical interaction. The two schools involved, ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and CSC (Computer Science and Communication) complement each other in mobile technology, user-centred design and design for physical interaction. KTH is well fitted for this specialisation with a strong research background in areas like CSCW, mobile computing and User Centred Design of communication media. Furthermore KTH offers a unique and integrated education and research environment with world-leading telcom industries located in Stockholm / Kista. Other facilities accessible to the master students include a mobile services lab, a haptics lab, a usability lab, a physical computing lab and a new center for information visualization ( featuring ultra-high-resolution displays, holographic displays, eye tracking devices and multitouch surfaces.
