Masters degrees in Rehabilitation Engineering equip postgraduates with the skills to substitute lost or reduced functionality in parts of the human body, through the development of devices such as prosthetic limbs.
Courses range from taught MSc degrees, to research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Design Technology, Medicine or Sports Science.
You will gain advanced knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the body, and the means through which various devices can have a positive impact on defective or lost bodily functions. Training includes techniques in motion analysis, bioimaging, and biosensors, and measurement systems.
Specialisations range from robotics and electronic implants, to prosthetics and wearable technology - and many other human-machine interfaces. You can also explore systems practices for social cognitive rehabilitation, includingsuch as the treatment of mental trauma, for example like post-traumatic stress disorder.
Expertise in this field can be applied to a range of industries, from medical rehabilitation such as orthotics, to sports rehabilitation, sports coaching, and physiotherapy. Other careers include therapy,counselling and social care and counselling, particularly , as well as disability and special needs assistance.
