Sociology of Technology

Technological change in business, in everyday life and in the world of communication leads to changes in organizations, markets, identities and lifestyles. There is clearly a growing demand for experts who can critically assess, analyze and evaluate the potentials of new technologies and their effects on society.

With its innovative combination of sociology and technology studies, our three-year bachelor’s program is unique in Germany. The program focuses on three components:

  1. Fundamentals in the social studies of technology, general sociology as well as methods of empirical social research
  2. Specific and applied sociological fields
  3. Selected topics from a discipline within the engineering sciences.

In the two-year master’s program, students are preparing for careers in social scientific research.
