The programme focuses on user-oriented design of equipment, services and innovation in a multi-disciplinary network. In addition of his/her information technology skills the student uses his/her knowledge of the working environment of social and health care. The student understands the relationships between a human being and the technology. The studies cover also human anatomy and biophysics, biomechanics biophysics.
The student implements development projects.
The development of health and well-being related devices, services and innovations requires curiosity towards the environment and courage and creativity to implement new kinds of solutions using information and communications technology. The implementation relates to the well-being of people of all ages, but with attention to services for the aging population.
The student learns about medical applications, such as remote diagnostics, telemonitoring and various patient information systems. The equipment and prosthetics and orthotics applications are studied in terms of electronics, mechanics and design.
The studies also consist of basic courses in anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, biophysics, treatment methods and prosthetics and orthotics.
A graduate is likely to work in a multi-disciplinary specialist team in a company or in a health care organisation, as a private enterpreneur, or as a specialist in research and development projects. The work prospects of this specialisation look very promising in the nearcoming years.
Engineers specialising in medical technology are capable of working with a variety of applications, designing and developing health care systems, equipment and new services in a multidisciplinary team of experts.
According to the Degree Regulations of Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences course assessment criteria are specified in the course implementation plan. The teacher in charge of the course will be responsible for the assessment. At the beginning of the course, students must be informed which must be based on the course objectives. Assessment takes primarily place for each course and applies to the students who have registered and been accepted on the course.
