Today marks the end of the semester for the Sports Technology Masters degree students in the Engineering School. With an accelerometer mounted on his wrist, wireless connection to the bat and the reflecting balls on the second bat for image capture, Satinder tries out the bat for comfort before making measurements. For the 2015 class, all enrolments were electronic engineers from India, however the Sabel Labs feature interns, higher degree students and visiting academics from around the world.
The courses included visits to the Queensland Academy of Sport laboratories situated 600m form the Nathan campus and many hands-on measurement assignments using the Sabel Lab facilities.
Enrolments are now open for next years classes which start in February 2016. With Griffith University being a major partner with the 2018 Commonwealth Games, sports engineering is going ahead in leaps and bounds (literally!).
