Neurotechnology is an area of research and application involving technologies that measure and/or modulate brain function. These technologies can include hardware, software, and drugs, and have applications in several areas including clinical diagnosis and treatment, health promotion and maintenance (including cognitive health), entertainment, and forensics.
The undergraduate certificate in neurotechnology is designed to provide foundational knowledge of this interdisciplinary area, including relevant topics in neuroscience, computer science, and business.
The certificate will also provide an understanding of how neurotechnologies can be translated into applications that are available to patients and consumers - through training in innovation, design, and commercialization.
This certificate was developed as part of the RADIANT CREATE program funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
