Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is the umbrella field for subjects such as usability, user experience, user interface, and to sum it up in a nut shell it requires interdisciplinary approaches to leverage existing and emerging technological interfaces. General disciplines layered into HCI consist of: psychology, behavioral interactions, ergonomics, engineering, forms of communication, and design.
Related fields HCI can segue into involve: product design, research and development, instructional systems design, robotics, and gamification. Few universities offer undergraduate programs for HCI. The University of Advancing (UAT) Technology happens to be one of seven universities in the United States with an undergraduate HCI program.
The HCI Portfolio presented fulfills all objectives taken from the UAT Undergraduate 2013 Catalogue.
Evaluate the impact of domains of emerging concern such as security, authentication, identification and automation on the design of user experience and human-computer interaction. Projects which meet objective 3 are as listed:Electronic Smart Doorlock
Prototype and produce innovative interfaces or interactions for at least two of the following: web, PC, mobile, handheld or next generation platforms, including all production materials required in a complete pipeline using industry standard tools, software and production processes. Projects identified as reflecting objective 6 consist of:Non-Verbal Children UAT101 Spotlight on Career Services
Web Design demands combining usability, user experience, to offer user interfaces delivered through internet communication. Effective web design withstands the trends, the rapid fluctuations and variances across browsers, devices. It joins aesthetics with functionality to entertain, educate, and facilitate the exchange of knowledge, services, ideas, and products.
Web Design often segues into marketing, branding, graphic design, software and app development, ecommerce, content management, and gamification. The University of Advancing (UAT) Technology practices discovery learning hybrid environments to provide students with collaborative opportunities.
