Course content

Are you intrigued to learn how cultures influence the design of products? This masters in Anthroengineering, which is one of the world’s first course of its kind, addresses generational challenges and demands of our daily lives which requires both technology and an understanding of humanity. Anthroengineering combines two specialist fields, engineering and the application of science in technology, and anthropology, the science of understanding humanity by studying, among other things, its biology and culture.

Run in collaboration with the Natural History Museum (NHM), you will have a unique learning experience with industry guest speakers in our seminar series. Through this, you will be introduced to real-world applications of anthroengineering, pointing you towards potential career paths after the completion of your masters’ degree.
