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 Product Development - Assistive Technology programme at Jönköping University 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 programme 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.
