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.
