DescriptionBiomechanics is a science examining the forces acting upon and within a biological structure, and the effects produced by these forces. The University of Calgary’s Biomechanics program teaches students how to apply mechanical theories and concepts to living systems with special emphasis on the human body, particularly its movement, structure and function. Biomechanics addresses several different areas of human and animal movement. It includes studies on the functioning of muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bone; load and overload of specific structures of living systems; and factors influencing performance. Students study the mechanics of human movement centred on sport, muscle, tissue and orthopaedic biomechanics through required coursework in the faculties of Kinesiology, Science and Engineering. The unique combination of specialized Biomechanics classes with Engineering and Science courses provides students with a foundation in muscular and mechanical analysis of human movement, the mechanics of biomaterial, biomechanics research, and the modelling and simulation of human movement. This program is offered as a Bachelor of Kinesiology or a Bachelor of Science.
