The Master in Human-Computer Interaction (MHCI) is jointly offered by the Department of Psychology and Cognitive Science and the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science. It aims at investigating people and their actions as a starting point for the purposes of technology design. It provides an effective approach to address the many challenges (public engagement, participation, privacy, emotion) currently faced by computer sciences.
The ultimate goal of the Master is to train a new generation of researchers and professionals, who can understand the complexity of human cognition, behaviour and emotion at a micro-meso- and macro-level and are able to embed this knowledge in new computing artefacts and technologies matching the most diverse human values, interests and needs.
MHCI aims at training professional figures and researchers with a wide range of multidisciplinary skills to understand, design and evaluate new interaction possibilities between human beings and IT devices.
