This degree provides the opportunity for students who wish to undertake an Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) research project on any one of a wide range of interdisciplinary disciplines, under the supervision of a team of experts. AAL is one of the major emerging technology markets of the moment, offering the potential to enable and empower citizens in their daily lives using state'of'the'art technologies. Known as assistive technologies in some areas, AAL facilitates everyday activities for people who require care and support, augmenting their quality of life and assisting their independence.
Alongside your independent study, you will also have tutorial workshops in key areas designed to immerse you in the technical areas of AAL. This will include: Introduction to AAL; technological infrastructure in AAL; software in AAL; ethics in AAL.
