Biomechanics (M.Sc.)

Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Education
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Kinesiology and Exercise Science
Description The graduate program in biomechanics studies the physics of human movement with several areas of specialization. In the course of study, students will learn the fundamental methods of analyzing the motion of the body. This will include the quantification of body segment and joint movements by film, video or infrared recording (in two- and three-dimensions), the measurement of external forces acting upon the body by means of force plates, accelerometers, and dynamometers and the collection of measures of muscle activity (electromyographic, or EMG) during movement tasks and subsequent processing. Some work on computer modeling of the musculoskeletal system has also been conducted.
