Master's Degree in Ergonomics and Biomechanics

The primary objective of the Master of Science program is to prepare students for academic and professional careers in fields involved in the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders, injuries and disabilities that result from the interaction of individual and environmental issues/factors in ergonomics and biomechanics.

The program is designed to provide the analytical skills essential to understand the development and management of musculoskeletal disorders, as well as the skills needed to promote preventive programs in industry and the health care environment. The program also trains the student in basic research, study design, and the use of equipment and measurement techniques employed in ergonomic and biomechanical evaluation and analysis. The master’s program encourages students to participate in research activities in such areas as risk assessment, risk management, workplace evaluation, and workplace design and modification.
