About

Science - Technology - Society Students at University of Vienna acquire the sensitivity to recognise the multi-dimensionality of current technoscientific challenges, enhance their ability to approach complex problems both systematically and imaginatively, gain the expertise to recognise the social and ethical dimensions of science and technology.  

Overview

Knowledge and technologies are deeply intertwined with the ways we live in the world. How we communicate, move, work, and care for our health – all this is constantly changing through new scientific and technological options. However, new techno-scientific possibilities also challenge existing value structures and ways of living, which leads to societal debates about risks, ethics and social justice.

The programme

At the same time, science and technology are not untouched by the societal environment they are part of. Socio-economic expectations and broader imaginaries of techno-scientific futures are part and parcel of contemporary research cultures, and influence how knowledge is produced and innovations are made.

Understanding these complex relations of science, technology and society is crucial in the world of today. The master’s programme Science - Technology - Society at University of Vienna offers a unique opportunity to acquire expertise in this domain.
