The Biomechanics APG was formed in order to unite alumni (and alumni from predecessor programs including Exercise and Sport Science and Health and Physical Education) with each other and with the faculty, staff and students of the Penn State Department of Kinesiology and the College of Health and Human Development. Our APG promotes and supports the Penn State Biomechanics Program and its alumni in four ways:
We help students discover careers they can pursue in Biomechanics.
We nominate Biomechanics alumni for College-wide awards and create an award honoring Biomechanics alumni who exhibit professional excellence.
In collaboration with the Department of Kinesiology, we will build strong lines of communication with Biomechanics alumni through the College of Health and Human Development website, newsletters, and other publications.
We look for ways to connect and build new bonds of professionalism and friendship by sponsoring social events and networking receptions at professional conferences.
- Joining the Biomechanics APG and updating your contact information.
