You will learn to research and analyse problems and to come up with effective interventions for current challenges in healthcare – for example, in clinical practice – business, education, or the fight against terrorism. You will learn how to deal with the possibilities and risks of new technologies – for example, using human-friendly robots, creating smart remedies for gaming addictions, or reducing traffic risks resulting from mobile phone use.
