The studies in this programme take place at both universities.
Students can specialize in one of three specialization options:
Although the programme is available in essentially the same format at both universities it is recommended that those applicants mainly interested in options 1) Interaction Design and Research and 2) Development of Interactive Software apply to UTA and those mainly interested in option 3) User Experience Design and Evaluation apply to TUT.
