Summary

This master's programme will allow you to further your understanding of advanced biomechanical principles, whilst also develop the practical and professional skills required for a successful career as an applied practitioner or researcher.

Through gaining a deep understanding of concepts such as three-dimensional modelling, coordination and movement variability and contemporary topics, and the ability to use a range of equipment such as a 14-camera Vicon motion capture system, isokinetic dynamometers, electromyography and force platforms, you will gain extensive experience of a wide-range of investigations.

Traditionally biomechanists have typically worked in clinical and exercise settings, focusing on movement analysis for injury prevention and rehabilitation or in a research context. However, due to recent technological advances, there has been exciting growth in the field, with a particular rise seen in the role of Biomechanists when testing and monitoring athletes within elite sport. This programme will provide you with the opportunity to enhance your ability to work in all three sectors.
