Recently, it is unthinkable to live without Post PC devices like smart phones, smart TVs, and embedded computing devices like cars and vacuum robots. Increasingly, physical devices becoming smarter with powerful embedded computing devices, requiring HCI students to understand the hard core computing subjects like numerical methods, computer graphics, distributed/embedded computing, artificial intelligence but also mechno-electronics. To exacerbate the situation, HCI is a subject that deals with how human may interact with these computing devices in the context of human activities, requiring basic understanding of human ergonomics, psychology, sociology, and even philosophy. It is very challenging to cover the breadth and depth simultaneously but it is equally exciting and rewarding to learn and research in this field.
