Application period: 2020-10-16 - 2021-05-02
Start date: Autumn 2021
City: Jönköping
Degree: Degree of Master (120 credits) with a major in Product Development specialisation Assistive Technology, 120 credits

The programme aims to provide students with knowledge and skills related to product development, design and manufacturing and is specifically targeted towards preparing graduates for a career within the assistive technology sector.

 

The development of assistive technologies requires a unique combination of medical and engineering knowledge. As such, the program is open to students with backgrounds in prosthetics and orthotics or mechanical engineering.

 

A fundamental principle of the MASTech programme is for students to have the opportunity to link theory to industrial practice. As such, students will be required to complete a number of projects addressing problems identified by industry partners, as well as completing an industrial placement.

 

The programme is conducted and examined in English. Each course is assessed separately using a range of assessment methods including oral presentations, reports, projects and written examinations. In a single course one of these methods, or a combination of them, may be used.
