The University of Washington’s Master of Human-Computer Interaction + Design (MHCI+D) program is a truly interdisciplinary experience with world-class faculty and students from four departments in the cross-disciplinary group DUB (Design-Use-Build): Computer Science & Engineering, Design, Human Centered Design & Engineering, and the Information School.
On Friday the MHCI+D program graduated its first-ever class of 29 students. Of the graduates, about 12 were focused on Design, 10 on User Research, and 7 on Interface Technology – the three core areas of the program. The graduates were from 9 countries; 15 were female, and 14 male. About 17 had work experience prior to entering the program. All have bright futures, with a number of them already securing jobs at top companies. They completed the degree in an intensive 11 months.
