You'll learn a strong complement of applied and research skills, balanced with how to communicate key information to relevant sport industry partners. You'll gain greater understanding of the effects of forces on performance through modeling, simulation and measurement of athletic events.
The focus is on developing research expertise, with a project conducted over the entire year of study. The aim is to develop and submit work of publishable quality. Current practical, technical and research skills are embedded in the course to reflect the needs of sport-related careers and industry but it is also a great stepping stone to a PhD.
