Greetings! I am a (very recent) graduate in Software Engineering from
Sri Lanka and I wish to peruse my higher studies (postgrads) in research based
user experience design and development. Professionally I do not have any HCI,
usability or UX related work or research experience. As a matter of fact, there
are no academic or commercial user experience labs in Sri Lanka. And finding opportunity
to gain work experience on such a field is very hard here.
I am about to start studying at the Open University (opens in new window), and picking modules that will increase my knowledge and progress my career as a UX designer. The modules cover cognitive psychology, technology and design. This is what I am looking at so far:
I've just joined this forum so first of all, great work, there are some really interesting discussions on here and I have been a frequent visitor dispite not becoming a member.
Its just a quick question really. I've recently been offered a place at City University to study Human Centred Systems and I would like some opinions on the department. Compared to UCL's Human Computer Interaction with Ergonomics, what are people's experiences?
I am so happy I found this place and believe that I will finally find
answers to my zillions of questions ;)
I have a degree in media management (which is like business
administration for media companies) and currently work as a product
manager for an innovative online company in germany. As product
manager I constantly do concepts about our websites and features, so
I already have professional experience in the area of interface and
I always had a huge passion for design, internet and photography. And
now I want to commence my educational career in this area.
I decided to go to university and study Ixd, but the more I search
the more I get confused and I don't know which university is right
my situation: I want to work in the web industry.
I don't have 10,000 $ for a semester!
I am very serious about this.
I found Umea and Malmo to be good and free,but there is other options
such as venice or royal college in london.
If I had the money I would go for CMU.
what should I do?
