The University of Twente is part of the 4TU federation together with the technical universities of Eindhoven, Delft and Wageningen. The Digital Society Institute of the University of Twente is one of the largest academic ICT research institutes in Europe with over 475 researchers. A clear focus of DSI is the integration of technology-based research and its application in specific domains. The Human Media Interaction (HMI) lab of the Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) does research into multimodal interaction: from brain computer interfaces to social robots. It is a multidisciplinary group in which computer science meets social science to investigate and design and evaluate novel forms of human-computer interaction. The HMI group is heavily involved in the MSc. programme “Interaction Technology” and the BSc. programme “Creative Technology”.
