Future technologies and digital society

Digitalisation and new technologies and materials change our world every day, challenging the way we think and act. The profile’s scope extends all the way from small components to astronomical phenomena.  Artificial intelligence makes it possible to use different amounts of data more extensively and efficiently. Our new initiatives in engineering education complete the multidisciplinary profile. We also need wider ethical, moral and societal discussions amidst change.
