The MSc in Disability, Design and Innovation is the flagship programme for the Global Disability Innovation Hub. It is led and awarded by UCL with teaching across Loughborough University London and the UAL, London College of Fashion. A multidisciplinary course; this is where design engineering meets global policy and the societal context of disability. Join the GDI Hub Research and teaching centre at UCL, harnessing academic excellence and innovative practice. The first term will equip you with core research methods, combined with a solid base in Future Global Technologies for Disability and Development. In the second term, you will take part in a group project and choose an option module. You will also develop your ability to build both marketing and business strategies to ensure your products, services or programmes are capable of delivering a sustainable, positive difference to disabled peoples’ lives.
Upon graduation, you will be equipped to explore job roles in international development, create start-ups or work within larger corporations in the field of computing, accessibility and assistive technologies. You will understand how technology can be harnessed to improve the lives of the worlds 1 billion disabled people.
Either a minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree in Engineering, Social Sciences from a UK university, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard, or, five years' experience of working in international development, design or assistive technology development. Students entering via the experience route will be required to attend an interview before being offered a place. For students without an engineering background, successful completion of an online preparatory course is compulsory. This will be delivered over the summer and will fully prepare students for the technical components for the course.
