Master By Research

The Master by Research in Informatics is a two-year research education programme. We have a research direction towards virtual collaboration. Within these area of virtual collaboration crisis management and the technology enhanced learning domains are especially interesting.

The Master by Research in Informatics is a two-year research education programme leading to a Master thesis within the area of virtual collaboration.  The master students will work in cooperation with the research group Critical Information (CRIINFO). Technology enhanced learning and virtual collaboration are two of three prioritized areas within the CRIINFO research group.
