About

Sports technology will provide a deep knowledge in the sport and technology field. The aim is to communicating skills for understanding and developing new technologies, both in measuring sports performance and in health care.

The two-year The Sports Technology master’s programme offered by KTH Royal Institute of Technology and GIH (The Swedish School of Sport and Health Science) provides an interdisciplinary background in sport science and engineering. This provides the best conditions for asking the right questions and finding the most exciting answers regarding measurement, simulation, and analysis of sport performance, health and medical care.

Technically, Sports Technology focuses on measurement, simulation, and motion and performance analysis. The programme also includes a block focusing on entrepreneurship, innovation and design. These blocks are complemented by a block of Sports Science, which is read at GIH. The programme consists of traditional engineering courses in electrical engineering, and mechanics to provide technical skills. A course in physiology to provide the medical/scientific breadth is included. The interdisciplinary nature of the programme ensures skills in cooperation and dialogue with different groups as well as the ability to handle social, economic and environmental issues.

Sports Technology involves choosing from an extensive selection of available courses followed by a degree project. Through project work, opportunities are offered to develop knowledge in formulating objectives and questions, seeking scientific literature and training presenting work both orally and in writing. These project works are often done in close collaboration with research and companies within the field.

Career

The labour market and society’s needs of engineers with knowledge about how to measure, simulate and analyse human movements and achievements are enormous. Such knowledge gives the prerequisites for creating a sustainable society, where everyone can live a healthy and valuable life regardless of age and with different physical and mental conditions. Engineers with these skills will be required in several social sectors in sports, health care, rehabilitation and in several different types of technology companies.
