MECH ENG 7112 - Sports Engineering

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2022

This course introduces the core technologies of the sports engineer and the biomechanical engineer, including force platforms, pressure sensors, motion capture systems, high speed video, EMG sensors, and IMU sensors. The use of these technologies is taught with a series of hands-on laboratories. Data analysis and manipulation is emphasised using programmatic tools such as Matlab. Walking and running gait is studied in the context of instrumentation and measurement in the context of both performance improvement and injury prevention. Engineering principles and considerations around the design of specific sports equipment is discussed.
