554K DFP Project Course

Each year we pair groups of interdisciplinary students with a DFP partner (industry, community, academic, etc.) to work on a real-world design problem, as proposed by the partner. The students then spend one semester applying their user-centered HCI skills to the challenge, resulting in new and innovative solutions. The 554K Project videos above are examples of projects that our students have worked on over the years.

Past 554K Project Partners include Microsoft Research, Samsung, BCCHRI, LlamaZoo, OceanCanada, Tableau, and more.
