Informed by industry needs, the Computing for Interaction degree sits at the intersection between software development and creative design. You will develop your skills in application design and development – both web and mobile – with a focus on user experience (UX) and interface design to build attractive and usable websites, applications and software.
During the course, you will investigate how emerging technologies – including invisible interfaces, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Edge and Cloud Computing – change the way users interact with software, hardware and the ever increasing amount of data we’re presented with. You will look at industry-relevant aspects of software development, including project lifecycles, budget and proposal development, the role of the prototype, and the practical application of production processes to develop client-centred projects.
Upon graduation, you will be professionally prepared to contribute to multi-disciplinary teams as an information architect, in the field of prototype application and website development, and in usability testing and interaction design – applying best practices in design to the production of interactive software products or systems.
