Course title: MSc in Computing (Assistive Technology and Universal Design)

Institution: Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland

Course descriptor: This Masters is designed to provide a broad background in the area of assistive technology with special focus on the principles of Universal Design. You will develop professional, technical and research abilities central to Computing for assistive technology.

Course Title: MSc in Computing (Information Technology)

Institution: Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland

Course descriptor: The MSc in Computing (Information Technology) is a 1-year full-time or 2-year part-time course leading to a Master of Science Degree and is an innovative programme designed to equip students with the essentials of Information Technology, with a particular emphasis on how to apply IT successfully within industry. This course includes an optional module on Universal Design.

Course title: MSc in Cyberpsychology

Institution: IADT Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art Design and Technology

Course descriptor: The programme aims to provide graduates with an in-depth understanding of how humans interact with technology and in online environments. There are modules in HCI, CMC and there is Educational Cyberpsychology in an Applied Cyberpsychology module.

Course title: BSc (Hons) in Psychology Applied to Information Technology / Applied Psychology

Institution: IADT Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art Design and Technology

Course descriptor: This programme is different from other psychology programmes in Ireland. The emphasis is on human-technology interaction and applied psychology. There is very little emphasis on psychology as the basis for helping people with problems. At present we teach modules on Information Design and Multimedia in 2nd year, Usability Engineering in 3rd Year and HCI and Cognitive Ergonomics in 4th year. There is an elective in 4th Year in eInclusion. From 2008 we have developed the programme as Applied Psychology and there are two streams Psychology and Technology and Psychology and Practice. The Psychology and Technology stream contains all the modules mentioned earlier.
