Study at two European universities with the EIT double degree in Human Computer Interaction and Design.
If you are interested in the field of human-computer interaction, combined with innovation and entrepreneurship, you can also opt for the double degree programme in Human Computer Interaction and Design (HCID) of the EIT Digital Master School. This international programme entails two years and allows you to study one year – either the first or the second – at the University of Twente and one year abroad at one of the following partner universities:
- Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland
- KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden
- Université Paris-Saclay in Paris, France
- Technical University of Madrid, Spain
- Politecnico di Milano in Milan, Italy
- University of Trento, Italy
Upon completion, you will receive two Master’s degrees.
Just like the Master’s in Interaction Technology, the HCID double degree programme focuses on the study, design, development and evaluation of novel user interfaces and interactive systems, taking into account human aspects at the cognitive and sensory-motor levels, technological aspects, and business aspects. Thanks to the minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, this programme has a strong focus on how to drive innovative ideas to the market, making this programme slightly different from the Master’s in Interaction Technology, in which you have more freedom to choose any focus, whether it’s more on the entrepreneurial, design, technology or research side, for example.
The two-year programme includes a technical major – along with a master’s thesis and an Innovation and Entrepreneurship minor. You will start the Master's at an entry university of your choice, partly dependent on your technical background. After completing the first year, you will move to your exit university, somewhere else in Europe. All classes are taught fully in English. The University of Twente is an entry and exit university, which means you can study either the first or second year at the University of Twente.
