Media and Information Technology, MIT

Media and Information Technology (MIT) conducts fundamental and applied research, and undergraduate and postgraduate education. 

MIT is a part of the Department of Science and Technology at Linköping University. The division is headed by professor Anders Ynnerman and hosts the research unit of the Norrköping Visualization Center C coordinated by C-research with director Patric Ljung.

On the homepage you will find information about our research and education. Feel free to contact us if you would like any additional information, by mailing Eva Skärblom, below.

Undergraduate Education

Media and Information Technology conducts undergraduate education on a variety of educational programs at different levels. Students on other programs, and exchange students, can also take courses offered by MIT. Many students also do their diploma work at MIT, often in collaboration with a company but also internally in any of our research groups.
Contact person for the undergraduate education is the director of studies Camilla Forsell.

Graduate Education

The Media and Information Technology (MIT) division offers doctoral programs towards the fulfillment of the Ph.D degree.
The goal is to produce graduates prepared to go on to successful careers in Visualization and Media Technology as well as Design and Education sciences,
whether in academic or industrial positions.

Postgraduate education at MIT is conducted within three curricula coordinated by senior research members: Design, Science and Engineering Education,
and Visualization and Media Technology.


The graduate program in design focuses on knowledge design; to work with concepts, theories and methods to design artifacts and shape
products, services and systems, and their relationship to human beings.

Science and Engineering Education
The subject of this program deals with learning, teaching and knowledge acquisition within natural and engineering sciences.
This is of particular interest for both students and professionals, to acquire and develop knowledge in natural sciences, engineering and technology.

Visualization and Media Technology

Modern Visualization and Media Technology includes many areas with strong aspects in information and computer technology.
The doctoral program covers the entire chain from data collection, processing, synthesis and communication using pictures,
sound and other senses as well as methods and tools for such operations.
