> Lancaster University is seeking applicants to its Masters in Human
> Computer Interaction Program which offers a multidisciplinary perspective
> on the design of advanced interactive technologies.
> The programme focuses on training in a broad range of knowledge and skills
> that are applicable to the specification, design, prototyping and
> evaluation of advanced interactive systems. For this, the programme has
> been innovatively designed at the interface of three fundamental
> disciplines of HCI and involving three outstanding departments at
> Lancaster University.
> *	Computing Department is an international centre of excellence in
> Computer Science research ranked amongst the top ten Computer Science
> Departments in the UK (RAE 2008). The programme benefits from direct
> involvement of the world leading expert in the field, Professor Alan Dix
> who co-authored the Handbook of Human Computer Interaction, a widely used
> textbook in HCI education at both undergraduate and graduate level. 
> *	Design and Imagination is part of the Lancaster Institute for
> Contemporary Arts, ranked amongst the top three institutions in the UK for
> Design Theory and Design Management (RAE 2008).
> *	Psychology Department recognised for its research expertise in
> design studies, creative problem solving in design, cognitive and social
> processes in innovative design, as well as process-tracing methodologies.
> Students enrolled in the program will be immersed in a cutting edge
> research training environment and will benefit from an exceptional
> integration of theory and practice. Programme highlights include
> company-based dissertation projects which provide students the opportunity
> to tackle real-world problems for real clients as part of the summer
> placement, i.e. Hewlett-Packard, Sony-Ericsson, BT, IBM, Xerox;
> practice-oriented teaching based on case studies and real-world examples;
> intense collaborative design project, where students work together and
> gain hands-on experience of designing an interactive system together with
> knowledge and skills of design critique. Not least, our students
> frequently produce publishable research outcomes as result of the research
> work performed throughout the programme, i.e. CHI 2009, NordiCHI 2008, HCI
> 2007, or HCI 2004.
> Careers: The Masters in HCI programme is designed for everyone interested
> in developing research-oriented industrial careers as interface designers,
> interaction designers or usability consultants as part of start-up
> companies, large organisations or freelance consultancy. For those
> interested in pursuing academic careers, the programme offers solid
> research knowledge and skills for enrolling in PhD programmes as
> demonstrated by over 50% of our graduates following academic route.
> Entry requirements: The Masters in HCI programme is open to everyone with
> an interest in the intersection of social and technological systems. A
> background in computer science, design or psychology is preferable, albeit
> not essential.
> Scholarships: A number of 1000 internationals scholarships are open to
> all overseas fees-paying students who exceed their offer or (if holding an
> unconditional offer) exceed our normal requirements.
