Technological progress is important for our world, but ensuring that it is translated into products and services that benefit humanity is at least as important.
In the research subject Human-Technology-Design, the goal is to develop knowledge about the relationship between human beings and technical products/systems. As a doctoral student, you will also develop methods and tools for studying the relationship between humans and technical products and systems. By doing a doctorate in human-technology-design, you will learn to support the design process in designing and evaluating sustainable and safe products, services, and workplaces.
