Biomechanics is the study of forces that act on the body and the effects they produce Biomechanists work in collecting and analyzing biological and movement-related data, examine the efficacy of drugs that affect movement, and generate biotechnologies that improve functionality and monitor mobility. The study of biomechanics is a unique intersection of biology, physiology, anatomy, physics, mathematics, and chemistry to solve difficult problems in medicine and health.
This program is an excellent choice for students planning to continue their education in profess ional schools for physical or occupational therapy, or medicine and other science-based programs.
