Description

This 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 the students to scientific thinking and writing as well as to hands-on work in various course projects.
Graduates' typical jobs include interaction or UX designer, usability specialist, researcher, user experience architect, and software developer.
Although the programme is available in essentially the same format at both universities it is recommended that those applicants mainly interested in interaction design, development of interactive software or research apply to UTA and those mainly interested in user experience apply to TUT. That way the majority of their course units will be organized by their home university.
