The Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technologies programme at the University College London (UCL) is delivered by the Aspire Create team, which is engineering the next generation of these technologies, in partnership with clinicians at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.
Why study this degree at UCL?
Rehabilitation engineering promises to revolutionise the way patients regain their independence. Complementary to drugs and surgery, this unique MSc focuses on how state-of-the-art technologies can be developed and translated into clinical practice.
You will tackle real problems, faced by people with complex and challenging medical conditions, such as spinal cord injuries and stroke.
There are plenty of networking opportunities throughout the programme, which is run by internationally renowned UCL academics, in conjunction with clinicians at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital; assistive technology specialists from the Aspire charity; and our industrial research partners.
Typical career destinations for our graduates range from, but are not limited to: academic researchers, biomedical R&D engineers, clinical scientists, and entrepreneurs who spin out their project work into start-up companies.
This programme will give you the opportunity to enhance your employability by gaining and refining both technical and transferable skills. Not only will you gain specialist theoretical knowledge, you will also learn how to put this into practice through our research-based learning activities. The highly interdisciplinary research focus will give you experience of the academic, clinical and third sectors. Importantly, you will refine your communication skills by interacting with different audiences (technical, clinical and lay) and learn how to pitch your arguments at the right level – this is a highly valued skill in any sector.
