HCI Siegen welcomes international students!
The Master program of Human-Computer Interaction (M.Sc.) is open for international applications!
For the first time international students will be able to learn from the lecturers of our internationally known research group without having to be able to speak German. Lectures in our international track will be held in English. If you are not a native speaker or haven’t studied at an English university, language requirements are defined as follows (either one of these tests can serve as a qualification):
a) Test of English as Foreign Language (TOEFL) “Internet-based” Test (IBT) with a score of at least 90 points,
b) IELTS-Test with a score of at least 5.5,
c) Cambridge Test – Certificate in Advanced English (CAE),
d) First Certificate in English (FCE) with at least B level,
e) A school report that certifies knowledge of English language at B2 level within the “Gemeinsamen europäischen Referenzrahmens (GeR)”
We would really like to encourage you to become one of our international students in our Master program. You get the unique chance to learn together with our diverse group of highly motivated and skilled students. You also have some of the best researchers in the field equipping you with the skillset you need to do outstanding research based design.
Systems for Humans
A good, sustainable and human-oriented interaction design is of great relevance for the success of socio-technical systems. For that reason, students of the HCI Master degree in Siegen are given a solid and wide overview of methods and techniques for a well-founded conception, design, implementation and testing of IT-systems for humans.
Praxeology and Context
Classic usability often focuses on (quantitative) laboratory studies. In Siegen, we are convinced that this is not enough, as it reduces human involvement to a minimum. For that purpose, our work resides particularly ethnographically (qualitatively) on the field, directly in user practice. That way, systems are developed in direct cooperation with end users (Grounded Design).
Research and Teaching
Research and Teaching are mutually connected in Siegen. Students work usually in the scale of research projects, which are also undergone with cooperation of the industry. Not only a large research relevance and possibilities of real academic work are part of such projects, but also a strong practical experience.
