What makes a graduate with an engineering degree in Welfare Technology especially attractive to the labour market? Below is an overview of the competencies you will have once graduated: general engineering competencies as well as the special competencies you will acquire in Robot Systems.
General engineering competencies
With an engineering degree from the University of Southern Denmark you will have a strong academic and professional profile based on highly competent teachers and fellow students who are skilled, curious and committed to their studies. Moreover, you will be part of a research and development environment of high international standard. That is how we ensure that you get the most recent knowledge and ability to be right up there in the lead should you choose to study or work abroad.

- understanding of how to motivate people to apply the many technological possibilities to increase the quality of life for the users
- ability to develop new ideas based on user interaction, acquire new knowledge and examine procedures
- ability to apply your knowledge of mathematics, mechanics, sensors, signals, signal processing, electronics, data acquisition and programming in the development of technical solutions to welfare problems for the future benefit of the young and the elderly.
The bachelor of science in engineering degree in Welfare Technology qualifies you to continue your studies for a master of science in engineering degree, in for example Welfare Technology.
