Vi utbildar för framtiden och skapar samhällsnytta genom vår forskning som levandegörs i nära samarbete med näringslivet. Vi bedriver forskning inom computer science, datateknik, software engineering och interaktionsdesign - från grundforskning till direkta tillämpningar. Institutionen har en stark internationell prägel och är delad mellan Chalmers och Göteborgs universitet.
We are engaged in research and education across the full spectrum of computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, and interaction design, from foundations to applications. We educate for the future, conduct research with high international visibility, and create societal benefits through close cooperation with businesses and industry. The department is joint between Chalmers and the University of Gothenburg.

This paper conducted an observational study to understand the impact which different visual appearances, sketching and geometrical figures (traditional modeling), have on the design process. The study also investigated what features are needed to make the usability of tools which combine visual appearances more intuitive for the users. OctoUML was chosen as a representation for tools which combine the use of sketching and the traditional modeling. An evaluation of the different usability characteristics was made on OctoUML. Moreover, guidelines for creation and user experience design of tools which aim to combine sketching and traditional modeling have been presented.
