This message does only concern the Master students in Computer Science who are still studying under the "old" regulations, which were issued in 2013. To say it simply: The exam regulations which contain the area Human-Computer Interaction.
For several reasons there are only a few or even no lectures given this and next semester within the area Human-Computer Interaction. To avoid unnecessary waiting time on the students' side, we allow explicitly the recognition of all classes from the Focus Areas "Data and Intelligence" and "Data Science" for the area HCI within the winter semester 18/19 and the summer semester 19.
There are several cases to be distinguished:
- Up to now one may have cleared 2 HCI classes: Then we allow to combine them in one of the two modules they are coming from. One should, however, not start specializing in HCI.
- If one has cleared 3 HCI classes: Then these can be combined freely with 2 classes from the above mentioned Focus Areas and an arbitrary seminar to build a complete specialization in HCI.
- If one has cleared 4 to 5 HCI classes: Then these can be complemented with 1 resp. 2 classes from the above mentioned Focus Areas and/or a seminar to fulfill the rules for the specialization in HCI.
The rule that at most two seminars can be taken must be respected, however.
Appication of these rules is limited to the winter semester 18/19 and the summer semester 19, as we assume that within these two semesters there will be enough classes available to follow this path.
In general, however, we strongly advise a better alternative: Switch to the new regulations!
