About

This course provides the students with an introduction to the field of requirements engineering and user experience. It provides a solid foundation by defining foundational concepts like stakeholders, requirements, usability and specifications. It also presents the process of identifying, modeling and documenting the requirements of a software product. Emphasis is given to concepts and techniques such as quality requirements, creative requirements, scenarios, and personas. The second part of the course focuses on usability aspects.

The course will focus on implementing the requirements gathered in the first part as part of UX designs. Further, the course presents methods of prototyping (for example, digital mockups) and presents some techniques to evaluate the usability of a software product (for instance, via user studies). Finally, the course will provide students with hands-on experience in designing graphical user interfaces (GUI).
