Objectives

In modern sports, athletes training and methods for the optimization of performance are under constant development, and require basic knowledge in human movement science to be mostly efficient. The objective of this first year is to facilitate the acquisition of basic knowledge and scientific skills in the fields of Physiology, Biomechanics, Psychology and Neuroscience applied to human movement. Understanding the multifactorial dimension of movement organization and related motor performance will allow students to better handle complex situations in sports during their internship in laboratory and professional structures (e.g. sport federations or institutes). By interacting with researchers and professionals, students will learn the use of cutting-edge technology within different scientific fields (e.g. fast camera, force platform, connected objects, portable gas analyser, etc.), and how to analyze and interpret collected data (e.g. signals processing, quantitative / qualitative statistics, etc.).
