Academic practice and scientific approach constitute the core strengths of our studies. Novel and contemporary research techniques that are developed with a scientific approach have been the most powerful tools in our research work. We are proud of our contribution to many product development studies that lead to user satisfaction and better user experience. UTEST's work to date covers a range of projects in which academic know-how is effectively employed in product development projects with leading electrical consumer products, automotive and defense industry producers in Turkey.
Initially conducting studies mainly on usability and ergonomics, UTEST now focuses on user experience, user-product interaction, and development of technologies for well-being and the quality of life in accordance with the current developments in design research.
