About this program

Product Development - Assistive Technology

The Program 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 Program 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 Program 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.

Admission requirements

Requirements

The applicant must hold a minimum of a Bachelor degree or equivalent (i.e. the equivalent of 180 ECTS credits at an accredited university) in prosthetics and orthotics or mechanical engineering. Proof of English proficiency is required.
