In order to take the course of Interactive Systems Design it is recommended that the student has passed the course of Human-Computer Interaction I (third year). As it is a fourth year subject, the practices and problems that will be carried out presuppose some basic computer knowledge as far as programming and modeling is concerned.
Subject: Specific Technology "Computación"
7th Semester (1st of the 4th year)
Methodologies and techniques for the design of interactive systems. Collection and specification of interaction requirements. Conceptual modeling of the interactive system. Design of prototypes. Design documentation. Development and evaluation of the interactive system.
This subject is integrated into the Computer Specific Technology subject of the curriculum and serves as a foundation and complement to the subjects of that specific technology.
The constant emergence of new interaction devices and paradigms are changing the way systems interact and opening new domains of computer application that require careful interaction design. The competences acquired in this subject will allow the student to develop a series of fundamental capacities for the profession of Computer Science Engineer, when knowing better the operation of the interactive systems, their types, the methodologies and design techniques or the methods used for their evaluation.
The student of Interactive Systems Design, will develop a series of fundamental skills for his profession by knowing better the functioning of interactive systems, their types or design methodologies and techniques. In addition, they will be able to develop systems of a higher quality since aspects that improve their quality are considered such as usability, accessibility or prototyping, which can help the end user or the client actively participate in the product to be implemented.
