CMI education

PhD Education

The PhD program of CMI builds on the general interdisciplinary research platform of CMI. 

Projects can either be technically oriented or interdisciplinary. Technology developments can be examined in a broader societal context. This means that market, policy, economic, and other social conditions for technology developments can be examined. 

The PhD program of CMI is part of the Doctoral Program of the Department of Planning but hosts also PhD students from other AAU PhD schools.

For information on CMI’s PhD program and on admission contact: Professor Anders Henten, email: henten@cmi.aau.dk

ICTE - MSc

Innovative communication technologies and entrepreneurship

The MSc programme is application-oriented and combines a solid technical engineering knowledge about communication technologies and converging media (mobile phones, Internet and digital TV) with innovation, creativity, market, and user perspectives.

Continuing Education MICT

The Master in Information and Communication Technologies (mICT) is an international Master's program at Aalborg University designed for you who work in the ICT industry and want to keep your job while you are participating in a Master's program. The courses are mainly given in the evening and during weekends.

MARKET, USERS AND TECHNOLOGY

The combined study of the interplay between markets, users, regulation and technologies is a unique feature of the 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 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.
