You are supposed to learn how to organize, communicate and implement a challenging project. As a Master student you have to work on your own.
Condition for the course is a deeper knowledge in the field of human-computer interaction, e.g. after having visited our courses Usability Engineering I + II or the seminar HCI.
You will be offered a list of possible project themes and can choose according to your personal interests or capabilities.

During the project's running time, you will be guided and helped by the course's assistants.





During the project, you will normally have to both work theoretically and practically. For you as a Master student, the practical course's issues and outcome could optionally be a highly relevant input for your Master thesis, if you choose to commit to a thesis in the field of HCI.
For passing the practical course, you must finish your task in time. You will have to present your final results to other project groups and to the course's leaders.


Specific literatur according to the theme and the focus of the project you choose.
