EPSRC Our Health

Sensing in the Community

Sensing in the Community is a new 20-credit, optional, Semester 2 course. It has been designed as an interdisciplinary cross college course offered ONLY to 2nd year undergraduate students enrolled on degree programmes in the Schools of Engineering and Chemistry and the Deanery of Biomedical Sciences.

Sensing in the Community has been designed as part of the wider EPSRC 'Our Health' Interdisciplinary Research Programme. Students will form interdisciplinary research teams and work together to investigate research questions around health and wellbeing that have been codesigned with 'Our Health' patient and local community partners.



 The Our Health projects are an excellent example of patient-centred research. They are led by our superb students from interdisciplinary subject areas across the University. I want to see the University engaging ever more deeply with the community, the city and the public.
