The Course

Summary

This exciting programme focuses on the design, development and clinical application of novel rehabilitative and assistive technologies. The programme is delivered by the Aspire Create team, which is engineering the next generation of these technologies, in partnership with clinicians at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. You will engage in research-based learning and work on real-world medical engineering projects which are driven by a clinical need. Throughout the MSc, you will receive core training in “anatomy for engineers", biomechanics and research methodologies, before choosing modules that explore cutting-edge topics ranging from robotics and electronic implants to social cognitive rehabilitation and “disability and development”.

Rehabilitation engineering promises to revolutionise the way patients regain their independence. Complementary to drugs and surgery, this unique MSc focuses on how state-of-the-art technologies can be developed and translated into clinical practice. Typical career destinations for our graduates range from, but are not limited to: academic researchers, biomedical R&D engineers, clinical scientists, and entrepreneurs who spin out their project work into start-up companies. Students will take this course in flexible study mode also.
