Using Human-Machine Interface (HMI) technology for the real world

In this third workshop of the CIADI Professional Development Series, Technical Product Manager for HMI and Embedded Systems at PRESAGIS, Matt Jackson will be joining us to discuss about Human-Machine Interface (HMI) technology applied in the Aerospace Industry and what it is like to be an engineer in the UK.

It will be held on Friday, December 3, 2021 from 11-12pm.


HMI technology is used by almost all industrial organizations, as well as a wide range of other companies, to interact with their machines and optimize their industrial processes. HMIs come in a variety of forms, from built-in screens on machines, to computer monitors, to tablets, but regardless of their format or which term you use to refer to them, their purpose is to provide insight into mechanical performance and progress.

In his online lecture, Matt will share with us some of his career experience from developing Human-Machine-Interface (HMI) systems in the aerospace and automotive markets.



Matt Jackson, Technical Product Manager

Matt Jackson is the Technical Product Manager for HMI Systems at PRESAGIS. He has worked in embedded hardware and software development for over 25 years specializing in HMI systems and real time graphics. He has worked on multiple Fast Jet, Helicopter and Civilian Aircraft cockpit display programs. His involvement in these programs has covered from concept to deployment working alongside Human Factors, Software Development and Systems teams. Matt has been involved in ARINC 661 development programs for the past 11 years with special focus on touch screen interfaces and is an active member of the committee


The CIADI Student Executive committee has been active as of Fall 2020 and is recognized as a sub-division within Concordia Institute of Aerospace Design and Innovation (CIADI). Its current goals are to participate in CIADI governance and decision making and create monthly events under the umbrella of the “Professional Development Series.” The series aims to give participating students a competitive edge, prepare them for the industry, and add positive value to their academic portfolio while receiving a certificate to show their dedication to further learning.

As an executive, your responsibilities will be to brief those in the line-up to give a talk, pick up tasks during the bi-monthly meetings with the Director of Education, report your progress, attend the scientific committee, and provide feedback while taking creative initiative. The committee is a cross-faculty committee, including GCS, JMSB and Arts & Sciences, and we are looking for dynamic students with interest in Aerospace. Your understanding teammates will always support you, so even if you’re worried about the workload, take the leap of faith and join us!

Send an email to stating your interest and whether you’d like to join for the beginning of Summer or after Spring Break.
