Beginning with the 2018-2019 academic year, the UNO Department of Biomechanics is offering a new undergraduate minor in biomechanics.
The minor will offer a formal course load to students interested in applying their primary discipline to biomechanics and movement sciences. The field of biomechanics is an interdisciplinary field with the goal of solving difficult problems in medicine and health. Applications of biomechanics can include robotics, forensics, ergonomics, assessment of movement disorders and the design of assistive devices.
The minor in biomechanics will consist of four core courses and two optional electives from a range of areas of focus.
The Department of Biomechanics is established as a premier location for education and research in the field. The minor offers students the opportunity to learn about the applications and opportunities that arise from a combination of biomechanics with their major’s curriculum.
For more information about the minor, visit the Department of Biomechanics website or contact department advisor Griff Watson at 402.554.3228.
