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 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 a 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. In a very international atmosphere, you will also work with the members representing different cultures, and you will learn about cross-cultural design. Please see additional information on Tampere Unit for Computer-Human Interaction.
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.) track and Human-Technology Interaction (M.Sc. Tech) track are two of the seven tracks in the Master’s degree programme in Computing Sciences, a new degree programme starting in August 2020.
