Central University of Rajasthan have started Department of Sports Biomechanics under School of Sports Sciences CURAJ-MYAS funded by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports (MYAS). The department is offering one M.Sc Program in Sports Biomechanics for those students who are enthusiastic and interested in making a career in sports bioengineering and mechanical aspects of sports person/athelete, physical activity and human biology. This course covers the area of study where the knowledge and methods of mechanics are applied to the structure and function of the human body.
M.Sc. Sports Biomechanics
(a) Name of the Program: M.Sc. Sports Biomechanics
(b) Objectives of the program: This 2 year master’s program specializes on mechanics and engineering aspects of a sport and sports person.This course focuses on the science concerned with the analysis of human movement. Through movement, simulation and measurement, it seeks to gain a greater understanding of human performance in athletic and sport activities, to improve on field performance and reduce injury risk. The content of this cutting edge programme ranges from experimental techniques and equipments – their requirement and use, to the latest theoretical considerations and research problems.
(c) Intake and eligibility:Bachelors’ Degree in any branch of Science /Life Sciences/Bio- Physics/ Engineering or any other examination recognized equivalent to or higher degree, any medical (MBBS, BDS, BAMS) BPT/Allied Medical Sciences degree with 50% marks or equivalent grade in aggregate for General category and 45% or equivalent grade for SC/ST/OBC/PWD candidates.
