Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to finish an individual project where a prototypical application or artefact ist developed, driven by a user-centered design process. The result is the artefact itself as well as the learning of a user-centered design process.

Students enhance their knowledge on qualitative research methods to obtain design requirements and goals. They learn how to meet these requirements by designing a working technical artefact.

Subject of course

Technical and methodological knowledge:
    • Incorporation of design goals into the development process of technical artefacts
    • Implementation of a design draft by continuously involving the users
    • Analysis and refinement of design through iterative development

Cognitive and practical skills:
    • Understanding of the complexity of (interaction) design
    • Evaluating the feasability of design ideas and artefacts
    • Implementation of design concepts in software for end users, including the creation of a report, a manual and/or instructions that enable the users to use the artefact to its full extent
    • Professional presentation and showcasing of the student's work to stakeholders and potential users in the real world setting of the aspern.mobil LAB

Social, innovation, and creativity skills:
    • Understanding the difference in approach between designers and programmers
    • Translation and mediation between the contexts of design and software engineering and alignment of best practices

    • Multimedia software engineering processes
    • Incorporation of design in software development
    • Implementation of design in applications and websites
    • Change management for design and software (project managemen)
    • Agile processes for design and software development

Collection of projects:

  • AR-Neighbourhood Design (PDF with details; in german)
  • Community-Wearable (PDF with details; in german)
  • Digital Mood-Meter (PDF with details; in german)
  • HoloLens App (PDF with details; in german)
  • Mental Health App (PDF with details; in german)
  • Mixed-Reality Research Matt (PDF with details; in german)
  • It is also possible to realize an individual idea. Details regarding the process can be found here.

Teaching methods

This course allows the students to study and implement user-centered methods. These methods have to fit the project requirements. Methods include interviews, testing of prototypes, sketching, mockups, workshops, cultural probes, etc.

Mode of examination


Additional information

In winter term 2022/23 the course "Project in Media and Human Centered Computing 1" will be connected to the urban mobility laboratory aspern.mobil LAB and the broader context of the Smart City Seestadt Aspern topic- and context-wise.


Supervision and feedback will be conducted based on information exchange with local stakeholders, potential users, and funding bodies.

This provides students with the opportunity to conduct a project with real-world requirements, the opportunity of a workspace on the ground, resources and contacts to users. (in accordance to TU Wien COVID-19 regulations)

ECTS breakdown:
    • 24 hours participation in meetings, presentations, and feedback sessions
    • 126 hours individual and group work, including documentation, presentation preparation, final report
