Human Interface Technology aims to improve interactive technology to meet users’ needs. It is useful in a wide range of areas such as medicine, rehabilitation, education and training, entertainment and business. Study in the field incorporates a diverse range of topic areas including User-Centred Design, the development of new interface devices and technologies (hardware and software), evaluating these technologies within the application context, and studying the broader impact of interface technology on human behaviour and society.
The master’s consists of 30 points of course work and a thesis to be completed full-time over one year. Graduates will have knowledge of key interface design principles, the ability to describe and evaluate interface hardware and software, and research and development skills.
