Overview

Overview

The Master’s course "Bomechanics - Motor Skill - Human Motion Analysis" is a consecutive study programme, which is based on relevant Sports Science oriented Bachelor's degrees. Further information about the admission can be found under "Application.

The study programme in Biomechanics ‒ Motor Skills ‒ Human Motion Analysis (Master of Science) equips students with the methodological skills needed to deal, at a high academic level, with all matters relating to the measurement and analysis of human movement; students are also able to explore advanced biomechanical issues in greater depth. Measurement tasks of this kind occur in the context of health care, clinics and sport, in diagnosis and in the implementation and evaluation of movement programmes. Similar analyses are also needed in ergonomics, industry and the media. Specific examples include the quantification of movement deficiencies in the case of neurological disorders (e.g. in cases of Parkinson’s disease or after a stroke), the analysis of human movement to reduce the number of falls among elderly people, the evaluation of gait changes during orthopaedic rehabilitation, the optimisation of movement sequences in high-performance sport and movement modelling for product planning in industry.

Composition of degree programme

The regular duration of studies is 4 semesters. The programme follows four areas:

  • Area A:
    Comprises knowledge and competencies for the application of scientific methods in the framework of motion analysis and allows students to prove their competencies in the context of project work as of the second semester. 
  • Area B:
    Supports the strong orientation of the course of study on methodology by a respective foundation regarding mathematical-statistical methods, which are the prerequisite for the analysis of human motion.
  • Area C:
    Comprises a theoretical area which is fundamental for the analysis of motion. A differentiation is made with regard to biomechanical and motor-neurophysiological foundations.
  • Area D:
    In this area students can choose from classes in the mathematical-scientifical area. There is room for individual focus areas.
