The School of Health and Welfare offers unique and practical programmes at the bachelor's and master's level, from our bachelor's in Prosthetics and Orthotics to our Master's in Assistive Technologies. The development of assistive technologies requires a unique combination of medical and engineering knowledge. As such the master's is open to students with a background in prosthetics and orthotics or mechanical engineering. We also offer a web-based programme within Occupational Therapy.
