The Human Computer Interaction programme from University of Trento 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 theHuman Computer Interaction programme from University of Trento 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.


Graduates in Human-Computer Interaction will acquire a solid background in the field of communication technologies for the creation and development of user-oriented and environmentally sustainable products and interfaces, thus meeting a demand which has been constantly increasing on the market of new technologies.

They can be employed in both the private and the public sector, e.g. in the fields of

  • marketing
  • research
  • health
  • services
  • industries dealing with the creation and development of products requiring a human interface

Graduates can also become self-employed and work as consultants for private and public institutions concerned with the analysis and development of Human-Computer Interaction, ergonomic systems and computational models of the cognitive processes.
