The Doctoral Programme of Humans and Technologies started on August 1, 2021. It is combined with the Doctoral Programme in Interactive Technology, Information studies as well as ‘user experience’ and ‘games and gamification’ from the Doctoral Programme in Computing and Electrical Engineering.

The Doctoral Programme of Humans and Technologies prepares students for challenging research, R&D and specialist careers relating to interaction between people, society and technology. The field has a strong multidisciplinary dimension and it requires an in-depth understanding of a broad range of research methodologies and approaches. 

The doctoral programme explores the relationships between people, knowledge and technology, which often requires the pooling of disciplinary knowledge and expertise in areas ranging from computer science and information studies to human sciences, such as psychology and sociology.
