The Public Health (HealthTechnology Assessment) offered by University of Birmingham is a strand of theMasters in Public Health (MPH) programme for those students who wish tospecialise in public health with health technology assessment. Themaster's programme in Innovative Technology for Healthy Living focuses on thetechnical solutions for wellness and active lifestyles. Big data obtained fromsensors and wearables worn by regular citizens and professional athletes willbe translated into contributions to healthy living for the general population,boosting public health initiatives and wellness innovations. Graduates from theprogramme will be R&D specialists with strong innovation andentrepreneurial skills, able to create bridges between human science,technology and health.
Innovative Technology for HealthyLiving at KTH
The master’s programme inInnovative Technology for Healthy Living is a collaboration between EIT HealthPartners from academia, research centres and industry. The programme willfoster a new generation of master’s graduates with advanced skills andapproaches within health-related engineering and innovation. The overall aim ofthe programme is to equip students with the skills to develop technical andbusiness solutions for healthy living and active ageing. Their work willencourage good health habits in the general population and promote the futurewellness of all citizens. A major goal is to enable future scientists andentrepreneurs to create engineering and business solutions that make itpossible for citizens to monitor and manage their own health by being informedand skilled in making wellness-driven choices.
The academic faculty involved inthe design of the programme has the knowledge and experience to develop, planand implement sport and exercise activities for individuals (athletes,non-athletes and those with more sedentary lifestyles), and monitor the effectsor the impact of such involvement and participation on their health andwell-being, using evidence based on anthropometric, biomechanical, biochemical,physiological and psychological parameters. Today's rapid developments insensor technology, mobile data acquisition, improved risk assessmentmethodologies combined with Big Data analysis allow the development ofpervasive and personalised solutions. The potential with these personalisedsolutions can span all levels, from cellular through organismic to systemic.
The curriculum includes not onlytraditional theoretical and practical training gained from the scientificknowledge of the partners involved, but also courses that implement activelearning and teaching strategies, team collaboration, aligned teaching,ideation, project management and entrepreneurship skills gained outside theuniversity setting. Challenges within the multidisciplinary areas associatedwith healthy living and active ageing, and that relate directly to innovationand entrepreneurship, include personalised lifestyle plans. The programmecombines advanced scientific education, entrepreneurship training, innovationworkshops and round tables, learning-by-doing education as well as offeringmobility schemes tailored to the individual student.
