Eindhoven University of Technology

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Engineering
Course summary The interaction between technology and their users is central in the HTI-master. Students acquire basic psychological knowledge and learn to apply this to improve existing, or design new technologies.
Course description 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. In the first year, you wil follow several courses in psychology and in your technical domain and will work in teams on the 'user-centered' design tracks. You will also carry out an empirical research project (in teams or individually) within one of the research groups of the HTI section. The second year of the Master's program is taken up by your international semester and your Master's thesis project. Your thesis 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.
