Academics

Welcome to the HCI students' guide

The following figure provides an overview of all basic, advanced, and research studies we offer during the summer term (ST) and winter term (WT).



Visiting some of our current lectures is the most common way to get in touch with HCI and our workgroup. If you enjoy reading and learning HCI, you can easily schedule a mentor conversation with us, in order to arrange your academic alignment with respect to HCI as your core discipline.

In our practical courses we offer you the chance to take part in several interesting and competitive research projects. An overview of the current Bachelor- and Masterprojects is available for download.

You will be fully integrated in our project work: Taking part in regularly scheduled meetings and joning us in visiting e.g. our industrial research partners.

Due to our cooperation partners (see partners for an overview), such as the library of the university of Konstanz, you have a broad choice of highly relevant topics for a HCI based Bachelor or Master thesis.

Tobias Baube's experience with HCI Tobias Baube

Tobias Baube

"Software ergonomic as itself was at first a simple term for me, which guidelines I had to fulfill. In the first larger project, I've gained deep insights into usability engineering. Here it is necessary to make the interaction with a program intuitive and to cope with user requirements. Different observations and discussions have shown, that the interface and the coexisting design were at least as important as the errorless and technical processes in the background. And step by step, the thought: "the user will know what to do" will get a totally different meaning. I made a point of doing my masters degree at the department of Human-Computer Interaction, University of Konstanz. There, the scope of lectures offer the most interesting and thrilling academics for me. However, not only the academics is wide spread, as I saw. As student assistant you are involved in current research projects and you are able to design and develop future oriented projects."
