Timeframe

Mo 18:45 - 20:15 - Aktuelle Bachelor- und Master-Projekte

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 style (autonomously or in teams). Students will learn how to organize (partitioning, milestones, meetings), execute (implementation, evaluation, documentation), and communicate (presentation, scientific thesis) a challenging project.
Prerequisites
Advanced knowledge of the Human-Computer Interaction domain, ideally by having attended specific lectures and seminars. Students are advised to attend lectures provided by Prof. Reiterer’s group in parallel to the project. This allows students to gain additional theoretical and practical knowledge, in relationship to the master project topic.

Work
A total of 300 hours divided into

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


Remarks
This lecture won’t have a regular weekly schedule. Instead, supervision will be on an individual level by the advisors (Prof. Reiterer & his research staff).

Audience

Master

ECTS

9

Activityconfirmation

  • Technical report about the practical work (15-20 pages)
  • 30 min presentation about the project

Literature

Depends on the specific topic and will be coordinated with the supervisor.
