Singapore University of Social Sciences

Advanced Biomechanics and Modelling (BME302)

Synopsis

This course is a follow-up of BME301 Biomechanics. It covers the biomechanics of the human spine, biomechanics of human skeletal muscle, common injuries of human body, modelling of human muscle and physiological systems. The course aims to provide the students with good knowledge and understanding of advanced topics of biomechanics and the modeling of muscle and physiological systems.

Level: 3
Credit Units: 5
Presentation Pattern: Every January
