Since 1997 the CHICO research Group has been one of the main promoters of HCI at the Castilla-La Mancha University (UCLM) and in Spain. This Group is leading the research and teaching of HCI in the Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering (ESI in the Spanish acronym) at this University. Now, with the aim of defining the academic offer adapting it to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA in the Bologna process) and defining the new study plans (curriculum and syllabus design), we propose several changes in the Interactive Technologies profile given in the ESI. These changes should affect the courses of graduate and postgraduate degrees, and the research associated with the development of doctoral dissertations (PhD). This paper presents the previous situation and the changes proposed to consolidate the HCI curriculum for the professionals of Computer Science and Engineering.
