The Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management (TPM) studies urgent societal and academic challenges related to technology. What makes TPM unique is its integrated approach to studying and shaping sociotechnical systems by bringing together perspectives from the fields of engineering, social sciences and humanities. We have been doing pioneering work ever since our establishment as a faculty, and our goal is to solidify and extend our position as a frontrunner in exploring academic and societal challenges related to technological developments in complex settings. 

In today's world, where societal challenges can no longer be solved with a single approach or from a single perspective, we research the interplay between society and technology. At TPM we have a strong tradition of analysing and modelling the structure and functioning of these complex sociotechnical systems, and of designing solutions to solve major societal challenges.

Our focus is on the societal issues found in fields such as digital society, climate action & energy transition, urbanisation, transport, safety & security, and health & well-being. We combine insights from the engineering sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. In so doing, we use our three perspectives: systems, values and governance.
