DTU is following the COVID-19 situation and its impact closely, please consult the webpage to get the latest updates.

In only a few years, the rapid development of digital media technologies has completely transformed our everyday lives and generated new applications.

Just think of how online YouTube videos, Spotify music streaming, smartphone apps, microblogs, Twitter, Wikipedia, and social media networks such as Facebook have changed the world.

What used to be known as media companies are now technological solutions operating across multiple platforms, making it possible to share digital media content and analyse user behaviour based on the large volumes of data being generated.

Study programme focus

In an area characterized by constant change, there is a need for engineers who will not be constrained by new technologies, but rather gain strong technical competencies to develop new types of interaction between people and software—which is reflected in connection with game design, personalization of media content, or smartphone apps using sensors to model how we perceive the surrounding environment.

The study programme offered at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) will thus provide you with a deep understanding of the underlying digital media technologies and related business aspects.

Focus areas

The MSc programme in Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence allows you to specialize in one of the five focus areas:

  • Social media and apps
