Curricular information is subject to change
On successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:
1. Apply engineering principles to biological systems in order to reduce the problem to an appropriate level of complexity.
2. Identify appropriate solution pathways and derive and develop solutions to biomechanical problems.
3. Design and conduct data collection and analysis related to biomechanical systems.
4. Develop analytical and numerical models of biomechanical systems, and use those models to predict mechanical behaviours.
