PhD Education

The PhD program of the center for Communication, Media and Information technologies (CMI) builds on the general interdisciplinary platform of the center. Technology developments are examined in a broader societal context, implying that a technical science approach is combined with social science and humanities approaches. This means that market, policy, economic, and other social conditions for technology developments are examined as well as the implications of technology developments for business and other social developments. The program relates to user requirements and focuses on user involvement as well as the market conditions, the political and regulatory environment and the potentials for new business models and market developments.

PhD projects can focus on the development of technologies in the communication, media and information technology fields as well as the use aspects, the business potentials and the framework conditions including the economic environment and policy and regulation. Also, the application of communication, media and information technologies in different societal areas is an important part of the program. This applies, for instance, to learning, governance, and business application, and it applies to private consumers and citizens and their interaction in social media contexts, etc.

MARKET, USERS AND TECHNOLOGY

The combined study of the interplay between markets, users, regulation and technologies is a unique feature of the ITCOM, ICTE and MICT study programmes, as well in the PhD projects at CMI.

The four perspectives are present in the semester projects and in the bachelor- / master thesis. In some cases greater emphasis is put on the technologies, in others on the market- / business perspective or the user perspective.

Both the BSc., programme "ITCOM", the MSc. programme "ICTE" and the continuing education "MICT" are based on group work via the Aalborg model of Problem-Based Learning. You'll have lectures, seminars, individual work and project work in groups. Projects typically include both a technical solution to a practical problem and considerations of the organizational and economic aspects.

PhD projects are, due to their nature, more specialized and typically analytical.

All courses are taught in English.

CMI working papers

CMI working papers provide a means of early dissemination of completed research, summaries of the current state of knowledge in an area, or analyses of timely issues of public policy. They provide a basis for discussion and debate after research is completed, but generally before it is published in the professional literature.

CMI Papers are authored by CMI researchers, visitors and participants in CMI conferences, workshops and seminars, as well as colleagues working with CMI in its international network. Papers are refereed before publication. For additional information, contact the editors: Anders Henten and Jannick Kirk Sørensen.
