How does the human brain acquire or reacquire knowledge? How does it interact with technological objects or with other brains? Can Artificial Intelligence be used to model and simulate human cognition? Can our knowledge of human psychology and behaviour be put at the service of major societal challenges, such as health, education, or the fight against poverty? Cognitive sciences have an increasing number of applications in a wide variety of sectors: education, remediation, brain-machine interface, biomedical engineering, public policy, decision-making sciences, urban planning, etc. To meet the needs defined by these new applications, the Cogmaster offers a training in Cognitive Engineering. For the purposes of this major, the internship must take place in a private business or public administration.

NB: from 2021-2022, this major will be validated over the two years.
