Description

The student will be with working on a complex topic in the domain of Human-Computer Interaction, in most cases related to current research in the HCI group of Prof. Reiterer. They will start with elaborating a theoretical perspective on the topic, e.g. through intensive literature research (in combination with the project seminar). The second part of the project will focus on implementation and evaluation of prototypes.

Learning Objectives
Scientific work (independent and in teamwork). The students will learn how to organize (Milestones, Meetings), conduct (implementation, evaluation, documentation) and communicate (presentation, thesis) an ambitious project.
Prerequisites
Basic skills in the field of human-computer interaction as taught in the principal lecture of human-computer interaction. Parallel to the Thesis' Project students have to participate in the Thesis's Seminar in their fifth semester. During their sixth semester students have to participate in the two lectures Usability Engineering 1 and 2 and the Seminar about selective topics from human-computer interaction.

Work
A total of 300 hours divided into

  • 56 hours study with compulsory attendance
  • 244 hours self-study


Remarks
Classes do not take place each week. Rather, participants are supervised on an individual basis through dedicated lecturers. At the end of the project one will have to present his findings.
