Overview

The Sports Technology programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology 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 consists of traditional engineering courses in electrical engineering and mechanics to provide technical skills. 

The programme also includes courses focusing on entrepreneurship, innovation and design. These courses are complemented by a course in sport and health science, which is read at GIH. 

A course in physiology to provide the medical and 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.

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.

The knowledge students acquire through the programme will also be attractive in many other contexts. Alternative career paths after graduation may include work assignments in ergonomics, design of disability aid, public health, healthcare, computer games industry, VR/AR and vehicle safety.
