We give students the freedom to create

In many of our courses students have a chance to work on a final project where they can apply the knowledge obtained in the course, freely ideate and/or implement a prototype.

IDEATE

You have the freedom to bring your own thoughts to the table and choose a project that moves you

EXPERIMENT

We provide the devices and resources that you need to create the next big thing. VR glasses, smart watches, Kinect, Arduinos, experiment with them all!

EVALUATE

We have a various labs (usability, gaze, VR...) where you can test the prototypes you create

Our research

In the University of Tampere, TAUCHI (Tampere Unit for Computer-Human Interaction) focuses on human–technology interaction. TAUCHI carries out a wide range of multidisciplinary research into technology-mediated novel ways of multimodal interaction with devices, environments and people. Their expertise covers new interactive technologies and methods: smart objects and environments, virtual and augmented reality, gestural interfaces, gaze tracking, haptics, internet of things, computer vision, speech-, context- or emotion-based interaction, information visualization, persuasive technologies, virtual avatars, etc.
 
In the Tampere University of Technology, IHTE (Unit of Human-Centered Technology) investigates how to design for optimal user experience of interactive technology and how to evaluate subjective user experience. The focus is on design research and user research regarding mobile and ubiquitous technologies and emerging technology trends, such as gamification, mixed reality, human-robot interaction, and social computing. The research is multidisciplinary and combines engineering and technology development with psychological and sociological understanding of human values and requirements.

We want our students to strive for more

As part of the preparation in our programme, we not only want to train our students with the expertise needed in their future careers but we are also highly committed to provide them with the tools and resources needed to find a job. We wish for our students to be successfully integrated to the working environment in Finland. That is why, we are encouraging them to create portfolios to showcase their skills and know-how to potential employers in Finland and the rest of the world.
