Interaction Design

Apart from research and education in interaction design, the divsion also focuses on visualization.

Research

The division of interaction design include research areas such as Visualization and Digital Design, with focus on how the digital, visual, culture is created and interpreted.  The research group Mobile Touch explores new ways of interacting with digital content on mobile devices, including design of smart phone and tablet applications. Within Tangible and Tabletop Computing, we study material user interfaces (TUIs) that enable the user to interact with computers through familiar material objects, with the aim of developing and evaluating interfaces that enrich human sight, touch and hearing at the same time. In the field of Gameplay design, studies are about how rules and mechanics in games affect the interaction of players. The purpose is both to help understand how people play games, and how to design games to promote certain gaming experiences. The division also conducts research on interfaces for interaction in vehicles.

Education

The division offers a master's programme at Chalmers, Interaction Design and Technologies. Many of the courses in the master's program also exist as independent courses at the University of Gothenburg. In autumn 2017,  the master's programme Game Design & Technology will start it's first term at the University of Gothenburg. In addition to the programmes, there are also independent courses in Visualization, Digital Representation, and Digital Movie Making.
