The paper presents the work carried out at the HCI Engineering Education workshop, organised by IFIP working groups 2.7/13.4 and 13.1. It describes four case studies of projects and exercises used in Human-Computer Interaction Engineering courses. We propose a common framework for presenting the case studies and describe the four case studies in detail. We then draw conclusions on the differences between the presented case studies that highlight the diversity and multidisciplinary aspects to be taught in a Human-Computer Interaction Engineering course. As future work, we plan to create a repository of case studies as a resource for teachers.
