Hi stergihan,

Looks like we are future classmates: I'll also start my studies in MSc User Experience Engineering in September 2016 – though I'm not sure if User Experience Engineering or User Experience Design is the programme's correct title (they seem to use both titles interchangeably.)

Well, in my case it's because of the Bachelor's programme I've been studying in before. In it's two last semesters we had to pick an elective module – I've picked Human-Machine Interaction (after doing some research about this). The module's topic turned out to be awesomely interesting, so I even wrote my Bachelor's thesis on a topic settled in the are of Human-Machine Interaction. This interest made me then look for a master's programme. After searching the web for appropriate programmes (www.mastersportal.eu is great for such researches) I stumbled over Dundee's User Experience Engineering MSc programme:

The university has a pretty good reputation, the School of Computing emanates an almost familiar atmosphere and the programme's contents (which is described on the university website) looks really interesting. It builds up directly on the content of my Bachelor's programme, it really is a perfect fit. Besides, I also appreciate the fact that the city of Dundee is located near the Highlands (looking forward for awesome hiking trips in the semester breaks) and the sea. The "total package" seems just about right. Now of course there's always the risk of falling short of my expectations – but life about taking risks? ;-)

Thanks, that actually helped a lot. The only thing that worries me is career prospects after this course compared to, let's say, UCL's HCI course. I'm worried that employers will not be as impressed by it..

I think that the influence of the fact which uni you graduated from on how much you are worth on the job market is highly overrated. Having studied at a first-class uni isn't synonymous with being perfectly educated and having the best of all skills in a certain subject area. Employers know that and won't put your application aside just because your competitors have graduated from a renowned uni.

In addition to that, I couldn't even finance a studies at UCL given those ridiculous tuition fees and rental prices (for student accommodation) in London. ;-)
