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 and digital services.

Master’s degree studies in Human-Technology Interaction (HTI) offer a broad set of courses in human-computer interaction, digital systems and related fields. In the HTI studies, you will get up-to-date knowhow on digital service design, user experience evaluation, user psychology, human-centered software development, usability engineering, multimodal human-computer interaction and research skills. You will also learn about current and upcoming trends so that you can understand where the field is going in the future.

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 multidisciplinary field and you will work with the professionals from several areas with different perspectives. 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 fundamentals of scientific thinking and writing.  

Human-Technology Interaction (MSc Tech) and Human-Technology Interaction (MSc) specialisations are two of the seven programmes in the Master’s Programme in Computing Sciences.
