    Programme Description

    The MSc Health Ergonomics course will be of particular interest if you work in the health sector in a role such as occupational health professional, occupational therapist, physiotherapist and nurse advisor.

    The content of the course has been informed by the core areas required by the Ergonomics Society and a survey of potential applicants.

    The Health Ergonomics Master's degree will provide you with knowledge of theory and the ergonomics methodologies and techniques needed to evaluate problems at work, propose solutions and assess how effective the solutions are.

    The course will enable students to work as an ergonomist or in an associated discipline, perhaps related to any first degree held. It will enable some students to change career direction and can also form health professionals' continuing professional development.

    Programme Aims * Develop a deep understanding of the user, their abilities and limitations in the context of the wider physical and systems environment, as applicable to task performance and health.
    * Develop mastery of, and the ability to and critically evaluate, theoretical and methodological aspects of ergonomics and apply them in practice.
    * Develop a thorough grounding in research methods and the ability to design new investigations using appropriate data analysis techniques.
    * Identify and assess ergonomics problems and propose and critically evaluate solutions.
    * Promote critical evaluation and the ability to work independently, and enable students to develop transferable skills to facilitate personal and professional development.
    * Provide a supportive and challenging learning environment for students, while maintaining flexibility utilising distributed learning and part time modes of study.
    * Utilise the mode of study to encourage students to use both people and resources within their working environment as a source of their learning where possible.
    * Increase the skills students' have to offer at work and improve prospects of gaining employment in an area relevant to ergonomics.
