The Human-Centered Design Institute (HCDi) develops education and research in various domains such as aeronautics, space, energy production and management, health care, and education. We have research and innovation labs, such as the commercial aviation cockpit design lab (equipped with A320 and B737 fully equipped flight deck simulators) and 3D-moving spaceship simulator. We also have an advanced interaction research lab where various kinds of novel tangible interactive systems can be designed and tested. Our philosophy is both theoretical and hands-on. Students are highly motivated and always eager to produce effective and tangible things.
