Hours & Credits
To introduce the concepts of biomechanics and their application to (i) sports performance, (ii) injury prevention, and (iii) neuromuscular training.
1. Explain the role of biomechanics and its strengths and weaknesses in sport, exercise and health environments
2. State the main principles of linear and angular kinematics and kinetic, and provide examples of their application in sport, exercise and health environments
3. Solve vector based questions related to the application of biomechanics (e.g. projectile motion, ground reaction forces)
4. Detail the different components of drag and lift and explain their application in sport
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
