Course Code and Name: SEEM3510 Human-Computer Interaction

Course Objectives:

- To acquaint students with the basic principles in the multi-disciplinary field of human-computer interaction, and its critical importance in systems engineering

- To explore HCI through examples and practice, and acquire experience in the full development life-cycle, involving design, implementation and evaluation

- To provide an awareness in contemporary and emerging technologies involving humans and computers

- To be able to identify effective design strategies for effective human-computer interaction

Course Outcomes:

 

1.     Acquiring the mathematical and engineering foundations that underlie human-computer interaction

2.     Appreciation of the use of other fields of knowledge in the interdisciplinary field of HCI, with the target to achieve a high degree of system usability

3.     Understanding of the integration of component technologies into end-to-end systems that support user-centered HCI

4.     Ability to design and critique user interfaces, as well as conduct empirical evaluation of their interim and overall performances

5.     Awareness of the state-of-the-art technologies that support HCI in real applications and usage contexts

Course Outcome(s) is/are measurable or not: Yes / Yes (Partial) / No (Please choose). If Yes, please suggest ways to measure:

This course contributes to

(P1) by teaching elements of it, and giving students practice in applying them. It could be measured by assignment, the term project and the final exam.

(P2) by giving students practice in learning independently. It could be measured by specific problems in the assignments and final exam.

(P3) by teaching elements of it in terms of case studies of real applications. It could be measured by assignments, the term project and the final exam.

(P5) by teaching elements of it, and giving students practice in applying them. It could be measured by specific problems in the assignment, the term project and the final exam.

(P7) by teaching elements of it, and giving students practice in applying them. It could be measured by demonstrations/presentations of the term project.

(P8) by teaching elements of it, and giving students practice in applying them. It could be specific problems in the assignments and the final exam.

(P10) by teaching elements of it using state-of-the-art technologies and systems. It could be specific problems in the assignments and the final exam.

(P11) by teaching elements of it using state-of-the-art technologies and systems. It could be measured by the term project.
