There is an ever-growing demand for experts who understand the complex interplay between science, technology, and society. In this Master’s, you will learn how to help policymakers and businesses reflect critically on the role of science and technology in society. You will take a distinct philosophical approach to analyse the benefits and dangers of modern technologies and examine how companies and governments can implement relevant digital solutions.

You also have the opportunity to follow a double degree and combine this Master's with either Business Administration or Public Administration at UT. With such a double degree, you will receive two Master's diplomas in two years’ time.

Completing this Master’s opens various career doors to you: you can become a government consultant, a concept developer, or an innovation adviser. If you want to pursue an academic career, you can apply for the 4TU Ethics and Technology track to expand your research skills.
