Human-Computer Interaction Jobs

What jobs can I get?

HCI jobs are in high demand. NJIT and Rutgers Career Services offices get notices of many more jobs (and coop internships) than our students can fill.

In aviation, manufacturing, and the nuclear industry, HCI is recognized as a significant safety issue. In the entertainment and advertising industries, interactive and social computing are so central that managers highly value HCI practitioners. HCI specialists act as liaisons among graphic designers, business managers, developers and end users. Every company that designs and implements interfaces to computing systems needs HCI specialists! Furthermore, several consulting companies evaluate interface effectiveness and improve designs. 

Common HCI job titles include:

  • User Experience (UX) Designer
  • Web and Interaction Designer
  • Information Architect
  • Usability Engineer
  • Digital Media Producer
  • Game Designer
