Course content

The Research Masters in Future Interaction Technologies encourages you to go beyond building new software and hardware, and analytically consider how technologies can be used and improved.

This programme is led by the Future Interaction Technology (FIT) Lab, based within the department of Computer Science. The mission of FIT Lab is to explore and apply advanced computer science in making interaction technologies dependable, enjoyable and effective. By interaction technologies, we mean mobile devices, the web and web 2.0, implants, smart televisions, microwaves, ticket machines, navigational aids and much more. We aim to address grand challenges such as healthcare safety, and widely accessible technology to help everyone live more effectively and sustainably.

This programme is suitable for continued academic research, but also provides the skills and experience necessary for practically converting research into practice across industry.
