Engineering for the Innovation Age
Putting people first, students and faculty in the University of Washington's department of Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) research, design, and engineer interactions between humans and technology.
Students and faculty in HCDE design solutions to global challenges by tailoring technology to human needs and interests. By employing engineering approaches rooted in a broad range of disciplines, we investigate the interaction of people with technology and technical development. From user-centered design to human-computer interaction, we are designing the future.
