The emphasis on the combination of welfare and technology has never been greater, among politicians as well as among ordinary people. That is one of the reasons why the University of Southern Denmark introduces a master of science in engineering degree in Welfare Technology. You will learn about the human anatomy, physiology and biomechanics and this knowledge will be combined with knowledge in engineering, IT and mechanics.
With a master degree in Welfare Technology you will, for example, be able to design a robot that can help rehabilitate accident victims. Or you could invent the intelligent plaster which would enable doctors to monitor the healing process. With this study programme you can specialise in either RoboMedic or Health IT.
More about the study programme
The study environment is characterised by teaching in small groups and projects carried out in small teams. At the master programme you will choose an academic profile; the area in which you will specialise. Read more about the study programme.
A master of science in engineering degree is a two-year master programme on top of a three-year bachelor programme. Thus, you start with a bachelor degree in Welfare Technology or a relevant bachelor of science in engineering degree (3 years) or bachelor of engineering degree (3½ years).

Please note that this programme is offered in Danish only. However, the Faculty of Engineering does offer a number of degree programmes taught in English.
