PhD Degree in Ergonomics and Biomechanics

The primary objective of the Doctor of Philosophy program is to prepare students for academic and research careers in fields involved in the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, injuries and disabilities that result from the interaction of individual and environmental factors. Typically, select students who complete the master's degree in Ergonomics and Biomechanics are invited to apply for the Doctoral degree program; however, individuals may enter directly into the PhD program.

The Inter-University Doctoral Consortium (IUDC) offers eligible GSAS students the opportunity to take graduate courses at distinguished universities throughout the greater New York area to supplement their ERBI courses. The IUDC has been in existence for over 25 years and offers students an enormous array of courses and opportunities for contact with faculty and students in their fields. Inter-University Doctoral Consortium Students gain understanding through the core courses of the program with the ability to supplement in specific areas of interest with course at other universities.
