At the Faculty of Behavioural, Management and Social Sciences (BMS), we are a bunch of tech-savvy social scientists eager to make the world a better place. We’re quite as excited about the wonders of humanness as we are about the powers of technology – and by bringing people and tech together in innovative, responsible and value-creating ways, we help them both become better versions of themselves.
We do this through academic education, fundamental science and societal problem-solving. From Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees and Professional Learning & Development programmes to cross-disciplinary research programmes in any of our five research themes: Emerging Technologies & Societal Transformations; Resilience; Smart Industry; Learning; and Health. From the development of the world’s most efficient hydrogen car, or of policies for fostering digital inclusion, to exploring new theories and tools that modernise the social sciences itself, our teaching, training and research contribute to a healthy and sustainable interplay of modern technology and society. We’re thinkers as much as doers, eager to study things like the impact of innovations on policy development or human and institutional behaviour, or the use of data and high-tech applications for impacting businesses or social groups.
In a high-tech world, we connect people and technology, ensuring that people matter to tech developers, while contributing to tech that matters to people. Want to go deeper? Read the stories of our four departments.
