Program description

The interaction between technology and their users is central in the Human-Technology Interaction master. Students acquire basic psychological knowledge and learn to apply this to improve existing, or design new technologies.

The HTI Master’s program provides fundamental knowledge from the psychological sciences. This knowledge is then applied during the program within a technology domain of your choice:Information and Communication Technology, Sustainable Energy or the Built Environment. The program focuses on new opportunities and problems arising from these rapidly changing technology domains.

Besides courses, you will carry out two projects as part of the HTI design specialization. The second year of the Master’s program is taken up by your international semester, your research project and your Master’s project. The research project consists of your first empirical research project, which is carried out in a team. Your project consists of a research project carried out individually under the supervision of one of the researchers. As a graduate of the program you will be able to assess the viability of new technological developments in relation to human constraints, preferences and capabilities. After this program you will be able to find employment in various academic government agencies, companies and organizations, working in consultancy or in research & development departments.
