Course summary

This exciting degree in Digital Health prepares students to be a part of the expanding Digital Health sector. It involves learning about technology - including hardware, databases, information management and systems architecture - specifically from the perspective of healthcare. For example, in addition to learning about how technology can be used to improve health, you will learn about what causes disease, and how health and disease are defined and measured. This will promote creativity in considering the variables that might be measured for the purpose of helping understand and improve health and wellbeing, to influence health behaviours, treatments, and outcomes. A unique feature of the Digital Health degree is the inclusion of modules on user centred design, delivered by which will ensure that you are able to design intuitive and appealing interfaces that people can easily engage with and will want to use. The course will also involve industrial engagement and placements, with an emphasis on tackling real-life issues, to foster the development of active problem solvers, capable of developing technical solutions to clinical and health related challenges. This will provide graduates with the skills, knowledge and experience to help deliver what digital health promises.
