Welcome to


The USability Engineering Research Lab

of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Saskatchewan

USERLab is dedicated to putting people first in all we do.

USERLab uses the Usability Centered Development Methodology, taught in CMPT 479 / 817,  to focus on providing usability to all users

USERLab led the development of the 11 Accessibility Goals in ISO/IEC Guide 71 Guide for addressing accessibility in standards. These 11 Accessibility Goals (aka Accessibility Principles) apply to all types of "systems with which humans interact as users, either directly or indirectly". These accessibility principles and an approach to applying them is taught in CMPT 480/840.

USERLab has developed 

USERLab is hosting the next meeting of ISO TC159/SC4 Ergonomics of human-system interaction/WG1 Fundamentals of controls and signalling methods

What Usability Engineering is:

Usability Engineering (UE) results from the intersection of software engineering (SE) with human-computer interaction (HCI). It provides a structured approach to developing usable user interface designs.
