Summary

Our well-established Sport Biomechanics master's enables you to specialise in the physics of sport - the area of science concerned with the analysis of human movement.

Through the measurement and simulation of movement, it facilitates a greater understanding of human performance in sporting and recreational activities. This understanding can then be used to improve performance and reduce injury risk.

The programme contains cutting-edge content, ranging from experimental data collection and analysis techniques and equipment, through to the latest theoretical considerations and research problems.

Throughout the programme you will benefit from access to a large designated teaching laboratory and use key pieces of biomechanics equipment, including Vicon motion analysis systems, force plates, wireless electromyography (EMG), and isokinetic dynamometers. Additionally, you will use the programming language MATLAB for data processing and analysis, and software for computer simulation and inertia modelling.

The programme culminates in an original research project wherein you will apply the knowledge and expertise you will gain from the taught modules to independently collect and analyse data to answer a research question.
