The program focuses on applied methodology for optimizing product and service usability, and enables students to initiate, manage and execute usability engineering in project and development contexts.
Since it is of vital importance for the students to have relevant and applicable skills for the job market at the completion of the program, the program includes topics such as establishment of user-friendly information architectures and systems development methodology.
The courses are organized as a combination of lectures and seminars/workshops. Most courses are 10 credits, and will normally have a 700-page syllabus. Most of the courses have mandatory requirements such as essays or empirical work. Student work-effort is expected to be 45 hours per week (for full time students) throughout the semester.
The tables below are valid for the 2017/2018 academic year. There may be changes to the curricula in subsequent years.
