The Sports Technology programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology provides a unique understanding of the areas of sports science and engineering. Graduates gain the skills to develop new technologies for measuring sports performance and advanced healthcare.
The two-year master’s programme in sports 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 sports performance, health and medical care.
Technically, Sports Technology focuses on the 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 exercise physiology, which is read at GIH (The Swedish school of Sport and Health Science). 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.
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 examples of technology companies that have a clear sports profile are extended and are becoming even longer. Some of the most famous companies are Suunto, Precor, Sports Tracker, Garmin, Silva, Adidas and Nike. Wearables in the form of training clocks, activity meters, cameras, etc. are a clear product range in which engineers from our master's programme will be able to provide essential and necessary knowledge.
