In 2009 the Queensland Sports Technology Cluster designed the worlds first electronic sports engineering degree for partner Griffith University following careful assessment of Griffith's existing programmes is engineering and sports sciences. 

It maximises existing capabilities in the engineering and sports sciences, together with new speacilist subjects. Popular in the UK, sports engineering degrees are mostly based on mechanical engineering. This degree focuses on instrumentation and seeks to meet the technological requirements of sport today. 

A worlds first electronics based Sports Engineering degree, combining the best of sports science, micro electronic engineering and biomedical disciplines. This degree at Griffith University was driven by demand from the sports industry and is proving immensly popular already. Already degree qualified or just need some specific upskilling contact Sports BioEngineering about tailored short courses, graduate diplomas, graduate certificates, masters programmes. Institutional enquiries welcome too!. 

Could an engineer help perfect an Olympic swimmer's stroke, a cricketer's drive or a Wimbledon winner's serve?
The new Bachelor of Engineering (Sport and Biomedical) will assist to develop and improve systems and strategies for performance in the sporting, healthcare, rehabilitation and medical industries. The degree is the first of its kind in the Australian tertiary system and meets the growing demand for trained sports and biomedical engineers to help athletes train smarter and repair the human body. Griffith's engineering programs are known for their innovation and practical relevance, and mix leading-edge research with hands-on experience in state-of-the-art laboratories. Students work within some of the most advanced teaching and research facilities in Australia, with access to the latest technology.
