The healthcare sector today faces many challenges.
Well-designed products and services are the perfect facilitators for sustainable change. The healthcare sector is one of the fastest growing and changing industries across the world. It is heavily affected by societal challenges like ageing and global developments, such as patient empowerment and heavy use of technology.
The Medisign MSc specialisation educates dedicated and skilled design engineers in topics, such as user experience in healthcare, integrated care, basic surgical skills and biomechanics. A basic educational principle of the specialisation is that students apply their knowledge and skills in direct contact with stakeholders: healthcare professionals, patients and informal caregivers. Application areas range from design for the operating room to mental health to elderly care. The topics of care, cure and prevention are addressed in both research and education.
