The user interface is the visible face of the application to the user. In general this is a neglected part in the different curricula of computer and related engineering.
This course aims to make the student aware of the need to take this part of the application into account as one more in the development process.
Students are provided with the theoretical / practical tools they will need both to perform a basic design of an application and to integrate the design made by a visual designer.
In order to evaluate the quality of the work done, a series of user interface quality metrics are also proposed.

The students will be able to design a user interface by complying with usability and accessibility guidelines for both operating system-based graphical environments and rich, classic Web interfaces. Specifically the acquired skills will be:
401-D01: Evaluate the usability of a Web application and a given user interface. Evaluate the accessibility of a Web application.
402-D02: Make a correct mockup (that complies with the principles of usability and good design) of the user interface of a Web application.
402-D03: Make a correct draft of the user interface of an application with a rich client.
