INFO-H 567 Internet-of-Things Interface Design for Business Innovation

3 credits

  • Prerequisites: INFO H541
  • Delivery: On-Campus
  • Students employ human-machine interface design principles and practices as an innovation engine for Internet-of-things (IoT) ecosystems. Through design challenges, they develop and refine IoT interfaces and their corresponding business models, drawing on case studies and a review of the literature.
    Students acquire design-as-strategy skills through team-based, industry specific design projects.

    Learning Outcomes

    1. Devise opportunities for innovation and growth within large-scale connected products, services, and systems by applying HCI/design research methods.
    2. Synthesize these opportunities by employing design ideation techniques and translate them into system-level design concepts and prototypes.
    3. Evaluate conceptual prototypes against a broad set of business requirements.
    4. Review appropriate literature to ascertain state-of-the-art IoT interfaces and opportunities for future research and development in IoT interface design.
    5. Communicate effectively on wide-scale business solutions to the spectrum of stakeholders.

    Industry Lecture Series

    The Industry Lecture Series features design leaders from major national corporations describing how human-centered design practices are integral to the development of forward-thinking IoT business strategies.
