The Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) programme at Tallinn University is a multidisciplinary curriculum that emphasises technology for the benefit of people.
This curriculum brings together computing, design and cognitive psychology. It offers a research-based approach to designing interactive, software and technical systems.
The HCI programme is an internationally accredited 2 year Master's programme (120 ECTS), fully in English, offered by the Tallinn University’s School of Digital Technologies.
The aim of the HCI programme is to prepare specialists, equipped with knowledge and skills for designing meaningful technology. You will undertake interdisciplinary courses, projects and research from the disciplines of design, technology, and cognitive psychology. The programme is organized in layers, from a very solid core to flexible of electives allowing you to fine-tune your education.
Our lectures and seminars usually take place on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, every second week during the semester, but lab work can be pursued everyday as our labs are open 24/7. Occasionally some courses are organized in shorter, more intensive study cycles, or delivered via the Internet, as web-based courses.
The studies take place in one of the most modern university buildings, which was designed by Ignar Fjuk Architectural Office and was opened in 2013.
The main facilities are our Interaction Design and User Experience Labs.
