We're advancing the field of health care, from technology to patient.

The Health Care Engineering Systems Center works with other departments both in The Grainger College of Engineering and throughout the University of Illinois to develop and host programs from professional certificates to Masters. We're always working to provide the widest variety of options for students interested in health care engineering research, so we're currently developing additional programs through the Jump Simulation Center to meet a variety of needs.

Master of Science in Health Technology

The MS in Health Technology program was developed with and is offered through the College of Applied Health Sciences. This program offers those with an interest in wearable technology, assistive robots, or virtual reality an opportunity to develop their skills and apply them to software application, hardware engineering, human factors, and user-centered design to create innovative health technologies.

This is a one-year program where students complete a total of 36 credit hours. Students can tailor electives to their specific interests, with a capstone project opportunity to pair up with industry, academic, or community partners. For full consideration for admission and scholarships for Fall 2022, apply by March 1, 2022.
