Neurotechnology is an emerging growth industry that applies brain sensing, imaging or modulating technologies to solve real world problems, such as diagnosing and treating brain disorders, understanding and modifying brain states, and even interfacing the brain with machines.

To innovate in the neurotechnology field, individuals require interdisciplinary knowledge of fields such as engineering, physics, and neuroscience, however, there remains no widely accessible academic program to allow students to generate this diverse knowledge base. This micro-credential program aims to address this gap to help better prepare students to innovate in the emerging field of neurotechnology.
