User Interface/ User Experience Design

What is User Interface/ User Experience Design? User Interface/ User Experience Design is the study, design, and evaluation of user interfaces to aid in the positive performance, emotions, and experiences of humans while using them. This course spans topics across multiple types of interfaces and modern modalities. 

Course Description

In depth course on User Interaction and User Experience Design. Focus mainly on design,
prototyping, and evaluation. Covers cognitive and social models and limitations, hardware and software interface components, design methods, support for design, and evaluation methods.


This course will teach you about the importance of the 2D and 3D user interaction and user
experience design. We will cover the perceptual, cognitive, social characteristics of people, and methods extracting knowledge about users. We will discuss the capabilities and limits of systems and discuss how that affects design and implementation decisions. The course will include a presentation of mixed skill set drawn from perceptual/psychology, human-computer interaction, web design, computer science, information systems, and entertainment elements. Using state-of-the art examples, this course covers users, interaction styles, user requirements, design approaches, rapid prototyping, usability and evaluation, traditional and future interface paradigms, and role of theory in informing design. Topics are grounded in the design process. You will gain
experience in practical and effective design and evaluation processes through completion of hands-on assignments and projects, and participation in frequent in-class discussions.

The objectives of this course are:

  • To stress the importance of good interface design.

  • To introduce the student to the literature of human-computer interaction.

  • To facilitate communication about interface design needs and decisions.

  • To provide the future user interface designer with concepts and strategies for making design decisions.

  • To expose the future user interface designer to tools, techniques, and ideas for evaluating and improving upon designs.
