Course content

Human Movement Biomechanics looks to optimise human performance, reduce injury risk, and contribute to the rehabilitation and clinical management of athletes and clients.

On this course you will have the opportunity to develop expertise in the practical use of state-of-the-art biomechanics equipment, including three dimensional motion capture, marker less motion capture, inertial measurement, electromyography, and force and pressure analysis.

You will benefit from a wide range of teaching, learning, and assessment modes with an emphasis on practical skills and the use of technology.

Through your substantive research project, you will also have the flexibility to specialise in the area you are most passionate about.

You will benefit from our close relationships with local and national clinical and sports institutions such as the University of Dundee Institute of Sport and Exercise, NHS Tayside, and sportscotland, Scotland's national agency for sport.
