Ergonomics

Prolonged sedentary work patterns and poorly constructed work stations have  expanded the need for trained Ergonomic professionals.

Ergonomics is the study of minimizing hazards and maximizing the efficiency of a person's work environment.  Involving components of biomechanics and engineering, students who choose this track, gain the opportunity to work closely with the Mechanical Engineering department in addition to gaining valuable experience in Occupational and Environmental Health. 

The MOH degree with an emphasis in Ergnomics requires a minimum of 30 or more credit hours of coursework and is designed to be completed in 1 year. 

 

A complete list of course requirements and degree competencies for the MOH with the ERGO emphasis can be found within our departmental handbook listed here: OEH Handbook
