DESCRIPTION: Our undergraduate degrees focus on the relationships between technical and social change, particularly with respect to information and communications technologies in both the developing and the developed world. The programmes cover inequalities in access to technologies, innovation and diffusion of technologies, networking, computer ethics and regulation of the ICT industry.

The MA in Innovation Studies explores the complex, dynamic relations between social and technological forces shaping innovation processes in an international context. There is an emphasis on inequalities due to gender, socioeconomic status and/or race; social distribution of responsibility, wealth and risk; and ethical considerations related to the governance of innovation in both business and the public sphere. The MA is offered as part of the European ESST Masters Programme, with guest lecturers from our European partner universities and opportunities for student mobility.
