This postgraduate research 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 our 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.

This Master's of Science by Research in Ambient Assisted Living will allow students to understand how this technology works, how data is processed to inform individuals and how these systems can be integrated into society to improve life in general.

This master's takes the form of independent research work under the supervision of a team of experts. The supervisory team will guide you on a continuous basis so that you become knowledgeable about the research methods to use while developing into an independent researcher.

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
This degree is an entirely research based masters programme. The majority of your time will be spent working on your research project in the library, laboratories or elsewhere, under the direction of your supervisors.

You will have regular one to one meetings with your supervisor to review progress and plan future activities. You may also spend brief periods at partner sites, for example where your project involves collaboration with industry.

Full time students are expected to attend for an average of 35 hours per week and part time students for an average of 12 hours per week.

Assessment will be based on a final dissertation of approximately 30,000 words. Two independent examiners will be appointed who will read and evaluate the dissertation, following which you will be invited to make an oral defence of your work.
