In addition, the aim is to provide students with project management skills and capabilities for innovating and developing wellbeing technology products and services. The training builds on the working life changes and requirements. Societal changes require the deployment of customer and user-driven, effective practices, as well as their management and evaluation. The studies provide the key competencies, such as the design expertise for customer-oriented project expertise, documentation skills in health care device regulatory requirements, procurement expertise in health care technological solutions, health/wellbeing technologies and ICT solutions and welfare service business skills.
Wellbeing technology graduates can find work placement as wellbeing technology experts, wellbeing technology trainers, development coordinators, project managers, application/system experts (customer and patient information systems), medical device chiefs (in the hospital) and as wellbeing technology coordinators or designers.
EDUCATION VALUE BASIS
Welfare technology refers to a variety of technical and technological solutions used to maintain and improve the quality of human life, wellbeing or health. In addition, the wellbeing technologies mean the systems used by the staff of the organisations used in activity guiding and evaluating. The value of training is based on the wellbeing and health-related technologies, life cycle thinking, sustainable development and ethics.
The studies consist of advanced professional studies (30 credits), the Master’s thesis (30 credits) and free-choice studies (30 credits). In advanced professional studies the students increase their knowledge and skills on welfare technology. The students can further increase their knowledge, depending on their development task or vocational special needs, in the free-choice studies.
