Objectives:
The Exercise and Sport Science course is designed to equip graduates as allied health professionals who use exercise as an intervention to improve health and fitness, enhance physical performance and prevent and rehabilitate injury in both healthy (including athletes) and physically challenged (such as the aged and injured) populations. Exercise and Sport Science graduates have diverse employment opportunities in fitness, sport and health industries. In the fitness industry they consult, test, prescribe and administer programs in commercial, corporate or government settings. In the sport industry they coach, train and apply physiology, psychology and biomechanics to human physical performance. In the health industry they are involved in education and promotion or in clinical settings for cardiac, pulmonary and musculo-skeletal testing and rehabilitation.
