Welcome to the FIT Lab!
What is the FIT Lab?FIT means Future Interaction Technologies — it’s about the complex devices that change our lives, for better or worse — whether in our homes, cars, mobile phones or medical devices.
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) can be a creative and exciting field of research, but in collaboration with companies like Microsoft Research, Nokia, and the NHS, the FIT Lab likes to focus on Grand Challenges
The FIT Lab was opened in 2006 by Professor Harold Thimbleby and has since grown to include a range of world-leading HCI experts.
As well as performing world-class HCI research, the FIT Lab runs PhD, MSc and MRes programs.

Maker Competition Exhibition16 December 2013
This year, on October 9th, the Computer Science Department at Swansea University launched the Maker Competition. The competition challenged our undergraduate students to explore the future of interaction using computing elements like Arduinos, Raspberry Pis and Makey Makey kits. After two months of tinkering, making, coding and soldering, our students exhibited their work last Thursday 12th December. Congratulations the teams behind Note Cube, Tweety Pi and Wobble Wire who won the top three prizes.
