This report presents the results of a literature research project that I performed to fulfill my study requirements for both Cognitive Science and Engineering (TCW) and Social-Scientfic Information-Technology (SW!), which I studied at the University of Groningen (RuG). It has been eight years since I started studying Psychology. After the first year, at the end of 1994, I choose to graduate in TCW and SW!. Within TCW, the idea that inspired me is the complementary interaction between Cognitive Science (CS) and Technology: knowledge obtained within CS can be used to solve or guide technical problems, and, on the other hand, engineering techniques can be used to implement and test models within CS. In my opinion, the basis on CS was minimal within TCW. This was due to its more practical approach, thereby emphasizing on the skills needed to design and implement computational systems displaying cognitive capabilities, not necessarily on understanding human cognition. Within SW!, I specialized in Cognitive Modeling, where the emphasis lies on modeling mental functioning based on cognitive theories. Furthermore, the application of knowledge about cognition in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) also formed an important area of interest. This strengthened my scientific background in CS.
