Human-Computer Interaction 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.
