Information Networks, Master of Science (Technology)
The great challenges of our time, from climate crisis to information manipulation, all have something in common: they are complex societal phenomena and solving them is unclear. These so-called wicked problems call for holistic approaches that recognise larger connections between things. The Master’s Programme in Information Networks educates cross-disciplinary thinkers and innovators with technical yet human-centric skills. Tailored to the needs of the modern digital economy and information society, the programme provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the interaction between human beings and digital technologies on an individual, group, organisational and societal level.
