NOTE: Where the 2014 requirements for a programme differ from those previously published, care will be taken to ensure existing students are not disadvantaged.
Interaction design is a rapidly growing field of study with a particular focus on complementary skills needed for the design, development, and evaluation of digital products and services that we use in our everyday lives. Interaction design is inherently inter-disciplinary in nature, and combines strong technical design skills with other forms of creative design skills. Interaction design practitioners therefore require a sound knowledge of computer science as well as having practical skills in applied areas such interface design, psychology, etc.
We list the Interaction Design requirements in the form of a "degree planner". Where semesters are shown they refer to the 2014 schedule.
† BSc regulation 8 requires 105 points across at least four science subjects. STAT121 and STAT111 will help satisfy these requirements and is strongly recommended in its own right. It also helps students keep their options open for changing to another major with the Faculty if desired.
* These elective 100 level papers should be recognised Science papers, which are all papers offered by the Faculty of Science & Engineering, all COMP, STAT, and MATH papers (except MATH168), and PHIL102, PSYC102 and PSYC103.
Elective papers may be replaced by papers at a higher level.
