Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)

The field of Human-Computer-Interaction looks at the intersection of Humans and Computers, such as the name suggests. This combines two very big and dominant research fields with their possibilities, challenges and constraints and investigates how humans can interact with computers to their personal benefit.

Human-Computer Interaction is not just a nice-research topic but rather a very broad field, which can be examined from different perspectives. Successful HCI research is characterized by communication between experts from Computer Science, Sociology & Anthropology, Design & Industrial Design and Psychology. Thus, people who understand, that the view of other fields than their own need to be included are one step ahead in building products, that are not only innovative but also easy to use.
