The Master’s Programme in Information Networks is a trans-disciplinary study programme in engineering building on information and communication technology (ICT) and digital media. It combines the fields of social sciences, advanced digital technologies and business.
The programme builds on a vision where finding, defining and solving effectively relevant ICT and digital media related challenges is not possible without a holistic understanding about the interplay between technology, business and humans. Accordingly, the Master's students combine in their studies computer science, media technology, industrial management, and business with a human-centered approach. The students can focus on one substance area, or choose to build a broader multidisciplinary combination of competences.
There are four focus areas, tracks, in the Information Networks major:
- ICT in Business
- Knowledge and Business Networks
- User-Centred Design.
