    Programme Description

    This programme aims to provide an academic training for those wishing to become qualified in the application and research of ergonomics to the design and operation of work systems, particularly where there are risks of a health and safety nature.

    It takes a multidisciplinary approach to training in health ergonomics by bringing together expert lecturers, tutors and advisors from the University of Surrey and elsewhere in the United Kingdom and overseas, including representatives from industry, commerce and public service, and facilitates access to up-to-date developments and new areas of importance in health ergonomics.

    With the increasing needs of those working or wishing to work as ergonomists in health-related areas and those with safety responsibilities in the United Kingdom, in the European Union and overseas, the programme enables students to acquire an appropriate academic qualification which will equip them to practise within industry, commerce and public service.

    The programme is appropriate for professionals who wish to obtain an advanced qualification in health ergonomics whilst remaining in full- or part-time employment. It is especially suitable for medical practitioners (particularly occupational), production engineers, design engineers, safety personnel, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, environmental health officers, psychologists and scientists in other disciplines.
