Become one of the people designing the digital products and services of the future
Digital technologies play a significant role in all areas of life. Modern societies need professionals with thorough understanding of how to design and develop user-friendly, innovative and sustainable products and services and engaging ways to interact with various technological devices.
Master’s degree studies in Human-Technology Interaction (HTI) offer a broad set of studies in human-computer interaction, digital systems and related fields. In the HTI studies, you will get up-to-date know how on digital service design, user experience evaluation, user psychology, human-centered software development, usability engineering, multimodal human-computer interaction and research skills.
From technological viewpoint, the studies cover the design and development of user interfaces for mobile and desktop applications, virtual reality, augmented reality, industrial machinery and human-robot interaction. HTI is a multi-disciplinary field and you will work with the professionals from several areas with different perspectives. Please see additional information on Human-Centered Technology (IHTE).
In a broader sense, you will learn how technology affects people’s lives and how to design efficient, engaging and ethical digital products and services. The degree leads you to hands-on work in various course projects, as well as provides basics for scientific thinking and writing.
Human-Technology Interaction (M.Sc.) and Human-Technology Interaction (M.Sc. Tech) tracks are two of the seven degree programmes in the Master’s degree programme in Computing Sciences, a new degree programme starting in August 2020.
