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 in HCDE build a strong foundation in design thinking, user experience (UX) research and design, and human-centered systems design.

In addition to completing traditional coursework, HCDE students work closely with faculty and across cohorts in small Directed Research Groups, addressing a wide range of human-centered research and design challenges.
