The labour market and society need engineers who can measure, simulate and analyse human movements. Such knowledge gives the prerequisites for creating a sustainable society where everyone can live a healthy and valuable life regardless of age and with different physical and mental conditions. Engineers with these skills are needed in several social sectors in sports, health care, rehabilitation and in several different types of technology companies.
The number of technology companies with clear sports profiles is expanding significantly. Some of the most famous companies are Suunto, Precor, Sports Tracker, Garmin, Silva, Adidas and Nike. Wearables in the form of training clocks, activity meters, cameras, and so on, are a clear product range in which engineers from our master's program provide the necessary knowledge.
In Sweden, there is a growing array of companies that operate in this area. For example, Racefox makes sports analytics apps for skiers and runners, Qinematic develops video analysis of human motor skills, and Challenges uses performance measurements to create challenges to inspire and motivate a healthier everyday life.
The skillset of graduates from the program is also attractive in many other contexts. Alternative career paths after graduation include work assignments in ergonomics, design of disability aid, public health, healthcare, computer games industry, VR/AR and vehicle safety.
