Students whose admission to the HMI programme is derived from, or constitutes a part of, their admission to a special programme (HCIT, HCID or TDD) may have a course programme which deviates from the requirements above.


A choice of units becomes a course programme once it has been laid down, with the approval of the programme mentor. The programme mentor has the authority to refuse his approval even if the choice of units is within the limitations of these Regulations.

Mandatory courses

Replaces “Academic and Organizational skills” for Computer Science and Telematics

All students have to take the following courses in their course programme:

191612680 Computer Ethics; study load 5 credits; counts as a core unit

192166100 HMI project; study load 10 credits; counts as a core unit

It is possible to have more than one instance of a unit of study (e.g. HMI project, Capita Selecta) in a course programme. Of course the approval of the programme mentor is needed. The difference between the two must be clear to all parties.

Core units

Replaces “Course Programmes” for Computer Science and telematics

Core units are the units of study in five different areas. Students must choose core units with a study load of at least 40 EC.

Human Computer Interaction (HCI) – 10 EC minimum

The core units in the student’s course programme must include units in the area Human Computer Interaction (HCI) with a study load of at least 10 EC in total. Since this area includes the mandatory 10 EC subject HMI project, the choice of additional units in this area is entirely optional. The units in this area are:
192166100
HMI project 10 EC (mandatory)
201000113
User Centred Design of New Media 5 EC

Natural Interaction (NI) – 5 EC minimum

The core units in the student’s course programme must include units in the area Natural Interaction (NI) with a study load of at least 5 EC in total. The units in this area are:
192166310
Speech and language processing 1 5 EC*
192166320
Speech and language processing 2 5 EC
192166370
Conversational agents 10 EC
201000078
Brain Computer Interfacing 10 EC

Artificial Intelligence (AI) – 5 EC minimum

The core units in the student’s course programme must include units in the area Artificial Intelligence (AI) with a study load of at least 5 EC in total. The units in this area are:
192320601
Multi agent systems 5 EC
192166420
Machine learning 10 EC

Man, Media and Society (MMS) – 10 EC minimum / 15 EC maximum

The core units in the student’s course programme must include units in the area Man, Media and Society (MMS) with a study load of at least 10 EC and at most 15 EC in total. Since the mandatory 5 EC subject Computer Ethics is included in this area, an additional free choice of units with a study load of at least 5 and at most 10 EC is required. The units in this area are:
191612680
Computer Ethics 5 EC (mandatory)
201200063
Philosophy of technology 5 EC
192165201
KMT Mediatechnologie 5 EC*
201100126
Human Computer Interaction 5 EC
201300034
Resilience Engineering 5 EC
201200123
Intelligent Systems 5 EC*

Media Technology (MT)

The core units in the student’s course programme may include units in the area Media Technology (MT). There are neither minimum nor maximum requirements for the study load of units in this area. The units in this area are:
19121091
Image processing and computer vision 5 EC
192160400
Information retrieval 10 EC

* Introductory courses

The choice of core units in the student’s course programme is restrained by the condition that the study load of introductory units may not exceed 30 EC. The introductory units are:
192165201 KMT Mediatechnologie 5 EC
201200123 Intelligent Systems 5 EC
192166310 Speech and language processing 1 5 EC

Elective subjects

Elective subjects are all units in the student’s course programme which are not core units. The choice of electives in the student’s course programme is restrained by the following conditions.

a.

The total study load of electives in the student’s course programme may not exceed 40 EC.

b.

Traineeship, Research Topics and Graduation Project do not count as elective units for these Regulations.

c.

Students can suggest elective units for their course programme; the programme mentor may give the student directives for the choice of electives; in any case the approval of the programme mentor for the choice of electives is necessary.

d.

In some cases the admissions board may issue a certificate of admission with additional requirements. See the admissions appendix. Students must use the space for elective subjects in their course programme to meet these additional requirements, usually called ‘homologation’. Homologation requirements limit the space the student has for electives in the student’s course programme.

Traineeship

All students may take a 20 EC traineeship in their course programme.

Research Topics

·

All students must take a 10 EC Research topics subject in their course programme.

·

A student must have completed study units of his approved course programme with a study load totalling at least 40 EC, to be eligible for a traineeship.

Final Project

All students must carry out graduation work under the supervision of a staff member of the HMI chair. The following requirements must be met:

a.

Students complete graduation work worth 30 credits.

b.

Graduation work consists of a graduation project, a graduation report, a summary of the report, and a presentation. Generally the Research topics of 13.5 above immediately precede the graduation work, and serve as a preparation for the graduation work.

c.

Students may start graduation work only if they have completed all of the remaining components of the study programme, unless the graduation supervisor grants permission to deviate from this rule..

d.

The HMI chair takes responsibility for supervision and assessment of graduation work.

e.

The graduation project description is written down as an agreement, signed by both the student and the supervisor. The supervisor signs on behalf of the Examination Board.
