About

Prevent acute injuries, musculoskeletal disorders and mental stresses resulting from poorly designed work environments by earning a Master's of Science in Occupational Ergonomics and Safety option at University of Massachusetts Lowell.

Overview

At this Occupational Ergonomics and Safety program at University of Massachusetts Lowell you'll prepare for a career recognizing, evaluating and controlling the hazards that result from a poor fit between the worker and the workplace. 

Learning outcomes

You’ll develop an understanding of human anatomy, physiology and psychology, as well as industrial hygiene and epidemiology, manufacturing technology and work organization. With this knowledge, you’ll be able to create processes that optimize skill utilization and learning, and physiological and psychological well-being. 

Not many tools and machines are designed to accommodate the human form, human thought patterns or human lifestyle. As a result, job-related stress and injury resulting from machinery, operations and systems are endemic. The solutions are simple, but challenging: make new stuff, make it better and make it fast; and create jobs, processes and work environments that mesh with how people are meant to live. Are you up to the challenge?
