Course description and aims

This course focuses on kinetic modeling of human body, musculoskeletal modeling of human body, application of human models, modeling of neural network, etc.
Living organisms themselves are very complicated systems. It is indispensable to consider living organisms as systems in order to develop practical systems related to living organisms including human beings. This course provides basic knowledge about methodology to model living organisms as systems.

Student learning outcomes

By completing this course, students will be able to
1) Understand and explain the basics about methodology to model living organisms as systems.
2) Consider living organisms as systems using appropriate modeling methods.

Keywords

kinetic modeling of human body, musculoskeletal modeling of human body, application of human models, modeling of neural network

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills
