Biomechanics is one of the seven undergraduate concentrations offered by the Department of Kinesiology. Students who pursue this concentration earn the Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science degree.  The BS concentration in Biomechanics combines coursework, research, and clinical experience in the application of principles of physics, engineering, and computer science to the study of human physical performance. Students in this concentration use such tools as high speed video and electromyography to study such topics as the basis of sport injury, the effects of disease on human motion and techniques for facilitating sport performance. Those who choose this option generally use it in preparation for graduate study in biomechanics or other areas such as podiatry, prosthetics, physical or occupational therapy, or medicine.
