This well-established programme provides the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of all aspects of sports biomechanics, ranging from experimental equipment requirements and use through to the latest theoretical considerations and research problems.
Work consists of hands-on laboratory and field techniques, theoretical modelling and computer simulation of human movement, as well as critical analysis, discussion and presentation of reesearch projects.
All academic staff involved with this programme are active researchers in various aspects of sports biomechanics spanning gymnastics, athletics, martial arts, racket sports and cricket, and bring examples and insights to the modules.
You will have the opportunity to use our biomechanics laboratory, which includes equipment such as Vicon motion analysis systems, force plates, EMG, dynamometer, together with software for simulation and inertia modelling.
An honours degree (2:1 or above) or equivalent overseas qualification in sports science with a strong biomechanics component, engineering, mathematics, physics or similar field. Overseas qualification equivalencies can be found here.
