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 digital products and services, as well as engaging ways to interact with them.

Master’s degree studies in Human-Technology Interaction (HTI) offer a broad set of studies in human-computer interaction, human-centered design, and user research. You will gain know-how on interaction design and user interface design, user experience evaluation, user psychology, human-centered software development processes, usability engineering, multimodal human-computer interaction, accessibility, cross-cultural and sustainable design, as well as qualitative and quantitative research skills to study people as users of IT.

From technological viewpoint, the studies cover modern user interfaces in mobile and desktop applications, virtual and augmented reality, human-robot interaction, collaboration technologies, industrial machinery, and many other emerging technologies. HTI is a multidisciplinary field, meaning that you will work with professionals with different backgrounds.

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 and provides basics for scientific thinking and writing.The studies also give a solid basis for you to continue with doctoral studies in the field.

Human-Technology Interaction (MSc) is one of the specialisations in the Master’s Programme in Computing Sciences and Electrical Engineering.
