Imagine designing the next generation of the wheelchair. Or adapting a bicycle so it can be ridden by someone with one leg. Or counseling a person with a disability to better understand his challenges and help find new solutions. That’s a career in rehabilitation science and technology. The program in rehabilitation technology presents a balance between a clinical rehabilitation preceptorship and practical engineering instruction. The multidisciplinary approach assures that the student receives a balanced exposure to clinical rehabilitation and gains technological understanding and an appreciation of scientific principles.
