If you are interested in entering the ‘Education Institution of the Year’ category here’s some more information on why it has been included in this year’s Sports Technology Awards.

Sports technology is the sports sector’s precocious child; it’s still only a teenager but impacts every facet of the industry. Testament to how fast our baby is growing up is the number of places of higher education, globally, offering courses specializing in sports technology.

From Arizona to Zurich, Beijing to Bath via Berlin, young people can find outstanding opportunities to study just about every facet of this electrifying sub-sector. Sports technology is a really exciting place in which to develop a career but, by its very nature can be complicated, so the institutions providing a robust grounding in the discipline are offering an invaluable service to both students and the industry alike.

‘Education Institution of the Year’ is a new category but our judges will relish the chance to see innovative sports technology developments happening in this sector.

As the sports technology business world expands, resulting in the need for more bright, relevantly-educated recruits, we look forward to finding which education institutions are truly the best globally.
