  • interested in Occupational Safety and Ergonomics?

Then, this program will be of interest to you….

Through this program students study, conduct research, and gain work experience in occupational safety and ergonomics. A limited number of full-time students will also receive financial assistance (“traineeships”) through a grant from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

Our graduates have careers as safety engineers, industrial engineers, human systems integration specialists, software analysts, and human factors engineers. They work for design firms and the US Navy; they work in the home health care industry, aerospace research, manufacturing, brewing, universities (academia and EHS services), and financial services, and some pursue further graduate education.


Grants from NIOSH help us support the students in this program.  As we join NIOSH in commemorating their 50th anniversary, let’s pause to reflect on the last 50 years of occupational safety and health research and look forward to the future.
