University of Colorado Denver

Mechanical Engineering/Biomechanics Track

Department Website

At 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, and dynamics of joint motion. Our 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 Boulder campuses. 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.
