What is biomechanics?
CU Denver, biomechanics is the application of mechanical engineering to
biological systems. This encompasses a wide range of topics including the
mechanics of biological tissues, biomedical implants, forces within cell walls,
dynamics of joint motion, and more!
goal is to provide students with a solid foundation in mechanical engineering
fundamentals combined with cutting-edge biological and biomedical applications.
We encourage students to take advantage of classes offered within our
department, as well as related courses offered at the Anschutz Medical and CU
Students pursuing the Biomechanics track will be prepared for careers in fields such as
the biomedical device industry, forensic engineering, assistive technologies, biomedical
research, kinesiology, and education.
If you are considering the Biomechanics MS Track at the University of Colorado Denver, please contact Professor Dana Carpenter via email or at 303-556-8348.
