Master’s Degree Programme in Human-Technology Interaction

Introduction

This master programme is offered in collaboration between the University of Tampere (UTA) and the Tampere University of Technology (TUT). Students can deepen their knowledge in course units that cover a wide range of topics from user experience and emotions to innovative use of facial behavior like gaze and expressions, touch, speech, and human physiology in user interfaces. The programme leads you to scientific thinking and writing as well as to hands-on work in various course projects.

 

The master programme has a direct link to research carried out by TAUCHI, Tampere Unit for Computer-Human Interaction. TAUCHI is a UTA research center focusing on human–technology interaction. It carries out a wide range of multidisciplinary research into technology-mediated novel ways of multimodal interaction with devices, environments and people. TAUCHI explores and develops better and more intuitive user interfaces for the future. It harmonizes the potential of new technologies with human abilities, needs, and limitations.

TAUCHI expertise covers new technologies such as smart objects and environments, gestural interfaces, gaze tracking, haptics, mixed reality, computer vision, speech-, context- or emotion-based interaction, virtual avatars, user experience and usability.
