This course provides theoretical grounding, practical knowledge, and hands on experience of key skills and competences needed to shape computing systems for the 21st century. As computing becomes ever more pervasive and reaches out into everyday life, academia and industry recognise that successful systems development increasingly relies on our ability to place people at the centre of the digital revolution. Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is a distinctive branch of computer science dedicated to understanding the relationship between people and computers, and to enabling systems designers and software engineers to develop computing applications that better respond to the needs of customers, clients and end-users. Related terms include human-centred design, interactive systems design, user experience design, user interface design, and usability engineering. HCI is a key area of computing, promoted globally by the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) and nationally by the British Computer Society (BCS). The course addresses core areas of the ACM SIGCHI Curricula for Human-Computer Interaction and is intended for students with diverse disciplinary backgrounds and experiences, including computer science, engineering, natural science, social science, and art and design. Whatever your background, whether you are a software engineer seeking to further develop professional skill and competence or someone with little or no experience of systems design, if you believe that people should be at the heart of computing and are interested in shaping our digital future to meet human need, then this is the course for you.

MSc Human Factors and Ergonomics

Campus Full time 1 year August 2017 United Kingdom Nottingham

The MSc Human Factors and Ergonomics aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to design products, jobs/tasks and environments from the human perspective. If you are interested in people, technology and design, then this could be the course for you. [+]

As technology becomes ever more complex and pervasive within our society, it is the ‘human factors’ in engineering design that often dictate success or failure. The MSc Human Factors and Ergonomics aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to design products, jobs/tasks and environments from the human perspective. If you are interested in people, technology and design, then this could be the course for you. The diversity in humans (in abilities, limitations, experiences, expectations, behaviours, etc) creates many challenges for researchers and practitioners in industry. By adopting a ‘human-centred’ approach, there may be many benefits for customers and/or employees, such as better usability for products, more efficient work processes, safer environments, more engaging product experiences, and so on. Conversely, by neglecting human factors and ergonomics issues, companies are likely to encounter major reliability failures, accidents, labour relations problems and unsuccessful introductions of products and technology. In this course you will learn about a range of human characteristics (physical, cognitive, social and emotional) as they relate to our interactions with jobs, environments, products, services and other people. You will graduate with a postgraduate qualification that is increasingly desirable in industry and provides the necessary knowledge and skills to address human factors issues for the 21st century. Key facts This course is accredited as the educational qualification for Membership of the Institute for Ergonomics and Human Factors. Many of our graduates have gone on to work in consultancies and high profile companies such as WS Atkins, Network Rail, Jaguar... [-]

MSc Transportation Infrastructure Engineering

Campus Full time 1 year September 2017 United Kingdom Nottingham

Available with two pathways, Sustainable Highways or Sustainable Railways, this course takes a practical approach. [+]

This course has two distinct pathways; Sustainable Highways and Sustainable Railways. Highway engineering is concerned with the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of highways, including vehicular, cycle and pedestrian highways and with their effective management. All this must be achieved as sustainably as possible. Railway engineering is concerned with the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of railways, extending to rapid transit (tram) systems, and with their effective management. All this must be achieved as sustainably as possible. Both of the pathways within this MSc programme take a radical, hands-on approach by linking traditional teaching intimately to near-real life highway and railway engineering problems. It provides the technical knowledge and skills to develop the analytical, decision-making and critical powers required to solve, in a sustainable way, genuine, practical highway and railway engineering problems. It will help you to develop transferable skills which could lead to a successful career in highway or railway engineering. Practical and realistic, industry-inspired projects (reviewed by industry advisors) will be used from the outset. Much of the material taught in lectures and seminars will be assessed via highway or railway project work, performed both individually and in design teams. Project work, engineering design, analysis and critique are central to all parts of the course. The University has a dedicated research centre, the Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre (NTEC), which carries out research into the fields of transportation and pavement engineering, as well as rail track engineering and rail system reliability. It is one of the world's... [-]
