Welcome to the overview of courses that the Human-Computer Interaction programme offers for incoming exchange students.
The Human-Computer Interaction programme is a joint master programme organized by FH Salzburg and the Salzburg University. As an international student at the FH Salzburg you can choose courses from the curriculum of the Human-Computer Interaction programme that are organised and held only by the FH Salzburg! See the course list below.
(HCI courses organised and held by the University of Salzburg as well as jointly organised and held HCI courses are not eligible.) In general, participation in all courses depends on the available free places as well as the available technical equipment.
