Program Description

The Bachelor of Science degree in Biomechanics provides students with the background and skills needed to create work and living environments which improve human health and enhance performance. Students will be exposed to specialized equipment to help measure the interaction of humans with their environment. Motion analysis, using video to create three-dimensional reconstructions, measures body positions, velocities, and accelerations. Force plates and accelerometers measure forces generated by various segments of the body and then exerted externally to the body. Muscle activation is measured through electromyography.
