Prerequisites for registration:
Assessment methods:
1. Lab. activities (full-time attendence students) 50 points / Individual projects (part-time attendence students) 50 points max.
2. Final exam 50 points max.

The points obtained from the midterm evaluation for the work in the semester are added to the points awarded to the student for the quality of his / her knowledge, demonstrated and found out in the exam. Individual grades of the credit system qualification scale are awarded on the basis of this scoring, which reflects the degree of success of the course as follows:
A = 94 – 100 points = 1
B = 86 – 93 points = 1,5

E = 56 – 65 points = 3
FX = 0 – 55 points = 4
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The objective of the subject is to learn students fundamentals of theoretical an practical problems of the programming Graphical User Interfaces (GUI). These problems are principles of the design and evaluation of the Human Computer Interaction, methods and tools of the programming GUI in C# language. After finishing the subject, the students will be able to design, implement and test user interface of the simple applications using e.g. Windows Forms, Windows Presentation Foundation or Universal Windows Platform packages with respecting principles of HCI usability.
