Technological development can make people's daily lives healthier and safer, as well as more understandable, independent, fun and comfortable. 

New technologies provide us with new means of communication and entertainment; and ways to make life more sustainable to protect the planet for future generations. But for these technologies to be really successful, people need to use them properly as well as trust, accept and adopt them.

The Human-Technology Interaction from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) provides fundamental knowledge of the psychological sciences covering basic themes such as perception, cognition, communication, motivation and attitudes. This knowledge is then applied to a technological domain of your choice. For example, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), sustainable energy, or the built environment. 

The program focuses on new opportunities and problems arising from these rapidly changing technological domains. You will need a thorough understanding of technology, therefore a substantial part of the program consists of engineering courses in the area of your interest. 


Specialists in human-technology interaction are in demand by academic, governmental and private organizations, where they work in research, development or consultancy. 

As a graduate of this program, you can find opportunities in areas such as telecommunications, sustainable energy, consumer electronics, the printing industry, the aviation and automotive industries or financial companies. 

Many of our graduates go on to work for companies like Philips, DAF, Océ and KPN, as well as universities and (international) research institutes such as TNO.
