Structure of the education

The primary field of technology and health is interdisciplinary, combining knowledge and practitioners from different fields of science. The teaching in the program is based on the ability to convey knowledge of the understanding and development of new technologies that can be used both in measuring sports performance, in health and medical care. Due to the cross-disciplinary nature of the program, several schools contribute; Industrial Engineering and Management, Technology Science, and Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health at KTH, as well as the School of Gymnastics and Sport.

The program will be given in the form of full-time studies during the daytime. Admission must take place every autumn term. The majority of the courses will be given by and on KTH, but some courses will be combined with students from GIH, and the courses will be given there. The students from GIH are reading master programs there and enrolled in this program course code,

Through the project work and finally the degree project, the student will be able to integrate the acquired knowledge and experience from the main courses.

CM2005 Sports and exercise physiology is tought at GiH.

Conditional Choices:

2 of the following courses should be read:

MF2043 Robust Mechatronics
CM2001 Mobile sports applications and data mining
CM2007 Applied machine learning and data mining for performance analysis 

And 1 of the courses:

CM2008 Entrepreneurship in technology and health
CH2007 Product design in ergonomics and sports

Courses

The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in Appendix 1: Course list

Grading system

Courses in the first and the second cycle are graded on a scale from A to F. A-E are passing grades, A is the highest grade. The grades pass (P) and fail (F) are used for courses under certain circumstances.

Conditions for participation in the programme

Participation requires admission to courses within the programme and course registration. Course registration is done via the personal menu at www.kth.se

For students starting their education from the autumn semester 2019, previous promotion requirements have been replaced with special admission requirements to each course.

Admission requirements are specified in the course syllabus.

Between 1 and 15 of May the students apply for admission to courses for the upcoming autumn term, and between 1 and 15 of november for the upcoming spring term.

Degree project

A 30-credit Master’s degree project is carried out at the end of the educational programme and is the final part of the education. The project work may begin when special admission requirements for the course are fulfilled.

The purpose of the project is to let the student study a problem in more depth than is possible in the courses. The degree project can be carried out at an industrial company, a hospital or at an academic institution in Sweden or abroad.

Degree

In order to graduate with the Degree of Master of Science (Two Years) within the main area Technology and Health, a passing grade must be achieved in all courses which are in the student’s study plan. The study plan must comprise 120 higher education credits including a degree project consisting of 30 higher education credits.

To receive the MSc degree, students must fill in an online application form.
