The department is headed by Professor Hans Jørgen Andersen who has background within media technology.

The department is unique in the Danish context as it collects disciplines within architecture, design, media and technology under one roof providing the foundation for a powerful new field of research and development of competence within the field of technology and design with a human focus. 

The department's vision is to utilize and investigate the interplay between creativity and technology for development of new growth areas in research and education directed towards the user or participants. The developed new architecture, urban design, products, and media solutions with the user or participants in focus address future societal challenges regarding development of sustainable and attractive ways of living. The impact on the physical environment and user interaction will be subjects for investigation, paving the way for new technologies and solutions that take the user experience fully into account. The ambition is to deliver excellent human centred technology research.
