The Brain, Mind & Computer Science (BMCS) emerges from the close collaboration between faculty from psychology, cognitive neuroscience and information science around the unifying topic of human-computer interaction. Its program rests on the assumption that the ability to work in groups with people of different background is now a fundamental condition to produce scientific excellence and to develop innovative skills that can be spent on the job market. We believe that this ability should be strongly supported already during research training. The BMCS graduate program is then characterized by genuine interdisciplinarity in its faculty, projects and courses.

PhD candidates enrolled in this course have the possibility collaborate and learn from other relevant disciplines to explore liminal areas where humans interface with technologies. They can also participate in the international research activities of the faculty members and to use a large network of facilities. All training is carried out in English.
