Human Computer Interaction (BS)

Human-Computer Interaction degree, Bachelor of Science (BS)

Transform the way we interact with technology

What is it about electronic devices that has users mesmerized? It’s the interfaces and interactions we rely on to make life easier, keep us informed and boost our connection with what we know and love.

The study and practice of designing the interplay between man and machine transforms the human computer interaction experience. The computer is no longer deemed a distraction, rather an invisible tool that empowers the user and facilitates natural and productive human-to-human collaboration.

University of Advancing Technology (UAT) offers a Bachelor of Science in Human Computer Interaction, which prepares students with real-world skills to tackle the evolution of IoT and UX infused hardware, software, mobile and more.

Real world topics include: novel uses of computer technologies in education, intelligent interfaces, virtual and augmented reality environments, wearable mobile and ubiquitous computing and new I/O devices.
