Logic, Master’s Program
Logic is traditionally defined as the study of formal aspects of valid reasoning, but today many logicians see logic as a more general study of formal systems and their applications. The conceptual frameworks and tools developed by pure research in modern logic have found many applications in diverse disciplines studying formal languages and systems, e.g., software engineering and computational linguistics.
As an academic subject logic is genuinely interdisciplinary and located on the border between Philosophy, Mathematics, Computer Science, and Linguistics. The exchange is active and mutually beneficial. Logic is nowadays an active international area of study and research also in mathematics, computer science, and linguistics. ...

Why study Human-Computer Interaction and Design at EIT Digital Master School?
Smart devices (mobile phones, PDAs, tablet computers), smart products (car, navigation) and smart environments (ambient intelligence) are enabling new services that require innovative interfaces. Human-Computer Interaction and Design (HCID) focuses on the study, design, development and evaluation of novel user interfaces, interactive systems and services.
HCID is an interdisciplinary programme where our User-Centred Design approach places the users at the centre of the design process. By combining human aspects (both at a cognitive, aesthetic and sensory-motor levels) to technological and business aspects, we create new products and services with great usability and user experience, and a solid customer demand, which often translates into commercial success. Students learn how to design and define how people interact and live with the modern ever-changing technical world....
