Masters degrees in Biomechanics involve advance study of the ways in which cells, tissues and organisms respond to increased or reduced forces. They typically apply traditional engineering methodologies to analyse biological systems.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Sports Biomechanics and Clinical Biomechanics. Entry requirements typically include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Sport Science or Medicine.
Biomechanics uses the theories of Mechanics and Engineering, looking at how these methodologies apply to the human body and other organisms. As such, these courses are highly interdisciplinary in nature and offer a wide range of career applications upon graduation.
Training involves practical and critical investigations such as workshops and lab experiments to increase your understanding of different issues of mobility. For example, you may learn how hypermobility in humans can be managed through physiotherapy. Alternatively, you might investigate how arthritis decreases movement in the body through examination of tissues, and explore it can be managed and prevented through clinical treatment.
Careers in this field include traditional roles such as physiotherapy, sports rehabilitation or clinical medicine. You might also explore roles in the design and manufacture of assistive equipment such as prosthetics, or even branch into veterinary work.
