Aim: 
The aim of this course is to introduce students to the areas of human factors and User-Centred Design skills used within the design disciplines. Modern design research practices centre around understanding the end user. Designers and researchers seek to understand people?s unspoken physical, cognitive and emotional needs, and how to discover and analyse these qualia to create meaningful design. The aim of this course is to introduce students to the principles and methodologies employed within a User Centred Design (UCD) approach to design. UCD forms the basis of `Design Thinking?, and these techniques are fundamental to many design disciplines such as Product, Service, User Experience and Interaction Design.
