Sports engineering is a fast growing field of engineering which encompasses the design and production of "sports equipment and "facilities, performance measurement and athletic feedback systems, and the study of "kinematics, "dynamics and "biomechanics as they pertain to sport. The field overlaps other fields of science and engineering, including "physics, "mechanical engineering, "electrical engineering, and "materials science, and many practitioners hold degrees in those fields rather than in sports engineering specifically. While sports engineering is not a well known field among pre-college students, professional societies are working to change that. Study programs in sports engineering and technology at either the undergraduate or graduate level are now offered at a number of universities.
A sports engineering congress is biannually held, hosted by the International Sports Engineering Association, termed 'The Engineering of Sport'. This conference brings world leading researchers, sports professionals and industry organizations together to celebrate the profession, showcasing new innovations in both research, and industry. The next congress will be hosted in March 26–29 in Brisbane, Australia.
