Biomechanics is the study of the mechanical functioning of the biological system. This course applies biomechanical knowledge in both a sporting and clinical context. You will study under the guidance of world-leaders in biomechanics, bringing your own knowledge into our state-of-the-art facilities. We welcome applications from those interested in the movement and mechanism of the human body and dedicated to the application and advancement of this field of study.

The curriculum is research-led with a number of core modules being directly informed by the current research activity of staff. Extensive training is provided in laboratory-based skills and in the interpretation of biomechanical findings and there is comprehensive coverage of contemporary issues in biomechanics. The programme opens up a world of scientific innovation, research and the application of clinical treatments that can achieve functional consequences for the human body in sports performance contexts.

You will be taught in world-leading laboratory facilities and will benefit from unique access to a wide-range of biomechanical equipment including: multiple force platforms, four 3D motion capture systems, wireless EMG, high speed video cameras, ultrasound, isokinetic dynamometry and the latest analysis methods and software (e.g. Visual 3D, SIMImotion).

Our dedicated Movement Function Research Laboratory is used to assess movement function, dysfunction and rehabilitation with a focus on movement re-training. You will receive applied training in the use of this state-of-the-art equipment and advanced techniques to facilitate independent usage.

Assessment

How learning is monitored on your programme

To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic.

Assessment methods on this course include: interactive problem solving exercises, oral presentations in front of a peer group, coursework and essays, in some cases combined with oral defence.

The dissertation is a substantial piece of research, submitted in a written thesis format, followed by a viva voce before Biomechanics staff.
