Technological development offers new possibilities to make people's daily lives more healthy, safe, understandable, independent, fun and comfortable. New technologies provide us, for instance, with energy-friendly and sustainable solutions to improve the environment in which we live as well as tools for elderly people to live longer on their own. Furthermore, new technologies provide us with new means of communication and new ways of entertainment. Examples are smartphones, ambient intelligence and smart homes, online shopping and communities, 3D television and renewable energy technologies like hydrogen technology and biomass.

For these technologies to be really successful, people will need to be able to use them properly as well as trust, accept and adopt them. As a Human-Technology Interaction engineer, you are typically concerned with topics that require a profound understanding of both the human and technological aspects.
