University of Advancing Technology offers a Bachelor of Science in Human Computer Interaction (HCI), which prepares students with real-world skills to tackle the evolution of IoT and UX infused hardware, software, mobile and more.
Human Computer Interaction has its foundations in the interfaces and interactions between electronic devices and the users that rely upon them. Great HCI design leads to the satisfied adoption of new, advanced and innovative user interface software and technologies. The study and practice of designing interactions transform the human computer interaction experience, so the computer is no longer a distracting focus of attention, but rather an invisible tool that empowers the individual user.
Strong HCI design enhances creativity, bolsters human-to-human collaboration, extends productivity, increases safety and makes interacting with devices enjoyable. Applications of good HCI practices include mobile and web applications, game and simulation, IoT devices, wearable technologies, novel use of computer technologies in education, intelligent interfaces, virtual and augmented reality environments and new I/O devices.
