Overview

The B.Sc. Movement science aims to impart biological, biomechanical, movement science and simulation technology knowledge of the human movement system and its transfer to technical systems.
The movement science education of the new course primarily implies the disciplines of biomechanics, training science, modeling & simulation, sports medicine, motor skills and psychology. The curriculum aims to describe and explain the mechanisms of human movement based on a primarily scientific point of view. The principles should be described as a model and ensure a transfer to various areas of application (e.g. orthopedics, sports equipment technology). Furthermore, physiological mechanisms of adaptation to regular movements (e.g. stress) are taught.

 

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

The sum of the points achieved in the Abitur certificate is divided: for Abitur certificates with a maximum number of points of 900 points is divided by 30, for Abitur certificates with a maximum number of points of 840 points it is divided by 28 (max. 30 points).

Other selection criteria  (max. 5 points):

  • completed vocational training
  • practical activities,
  • extracurricular achievement, e.g. prizes or awards

Selection:
The scores from the school and other criteria are added up (maximum 35 points). A ranking list is created based on the number of points.

 

CAREER PROSPECTS

The graduates of the B.Sc. Movement Science and M.Sc. Movement science and biomechanics are primarily qualified for employment in the following organizations and fields of activity:
1. Industrial companies:

  • Sports equipment development (further development of sports clothing, sports shoes, auxiliary equipment, "wearables")
  • Measuring system manufacturer (development of kinematic, electrophysiological and dynamographic measuring systems; product advice in the context of sales)
  • Human-environment-technology interaction, e.g. in mechanical engineering, in the automotive industry (e.g. seat comfort development, crash test studies)
  • Medical technology (further development of prostheses, orthoses)
  • Computer game development and film industry (animation of human movement)

2. Health care organizations:

  • Clinics with orthopedic and neurological focus (e.g. gait analysis, neuromuscular analysis)
  • Outpatient health centers (performance and stress diagnostics)
  • Orthopedic stores, rehabilitation and prevention centers

3. Competitive sports organizations:

  • Olympic training centers, professional associations (e.g. performance diagnostics, movement optimization, training advice)

For managerial positions in these professional fields as well as strongly research and development-oriented positions, it is advisable to acquire the consecutively offered Master’s degree (M.Sc. Movement Science and Biomechanics).
