The programme consists of six modules which enables students to study for the MSc Applied Ergonomics by Distance Learning from the comfort of their own home at a time to suit you, without coming to the University if they do not wish to do so.

The emphasis of the Applied Ergonomics by Distance Learning Postgraduate degree programme is on improving awareness of the critical contribution ergonomics has in organisations and society and to provide the necessary skills to address these issues in the design of products, jobs, workplaces and systems. It also familiarises students with the need for end user focus in the design of computing and communication systems and information technology, including advanced virtual and other technologies of the future.

The programme is designed to give honours graduates the human factors/ergonomics expertise required in a wide range of manufacturing, service and process industries, enforcement agencies such as Local Authorities and the health service, as well as a grounding for a career in research. Students may already be working in the industry and want to enhance their knowledge or may be looking to gain skills that would enable them to join the industry.

On graduating with an MSc, which can be achieved in 2 to 4 years, students will have the necessary skills and knowledge to pursue a career in the field of ergonomics. They will also have gained the necessary research skills to undertake further study if they wish.

This MSc programme consists of four elements; lecture courses, continuous assessment, practical work, and a minor research thesis.

Programme description
The programme is divided into seven subject areas that include: occupational health, occupational hygiene, ergonomics, safety and risk management, research methods, legal studies, and management studies. Students will gain experience in the use of state-of-the-art equipment and software packages. They will also observe occupational health & safety in the workplace at first-hand through extensive site visits. Students will be exposed to relevant domain experts through seminars and team-based projects.

Programme aims and objectives
The programme will give participants formal instruction in the broad multidisciplinary areas of occupational health & safety and enable them to take on managerial responsibilities for these matters within an industry or to work with a regulatory agency or consultancy firm. It will also provide a foundation for further research in the areas of occupational health, ergonomics, occupational hygiene, and safety engineering. The programme has been recognised by the Irish Health and Safety Authority and satisfies the academic requirements for membership of the U.K. Institution of Occupational Safety and Health.

The MSc (Kinesiology) program commenced in 2005. In its short history, 10 master’s students have continued on to doctoral programs. Graduate students have authored or co-authored approximately 20 peer-reviewed articles in that period. The laboratories are well equipped with 3 EMG acquisition systems, 2 metabolic carts, hypoxic air generator, force platform, muscle stimulation unit, immersion tank, accelerometers, lumbar motion monitor, and a variety of strain gauges among other equipment.

Memorial conferred its first degree in Master of Physical Education (MPE) in 1975. Beginning September 2008, the MPE program may be completed entirely online via distance education. The MPE program provides professional training to leaders in the fields of physical education, sport, and recreation. While some students concentrate in the areas of administration, curriculum, and supervision in physical education, others opt for studies in related professional areas. These areas include parks and recreation, sport and leisure administration and management, and sport science.

Students completing their MPE can focus on administration, curriculum, or supervision, while those completing their MSc can focus on exercise and work physiology, biomechanics/ergonomics, sport psychology, and socio-cultural studies of physical activity and health. Seven new courses have been introduced that reflect the present issues in the physical education curriculum. Graduates have moved on to a variety of professions and include university professors, lawyers, engineers, administrators, and teachers. Many graduate students have also gone on to pursue doctoral studies in a number of exciting fields. Graduate programs are offered in both full-time and part-time formats, with a number of different options available to students.

The MSc (Kin) program involves courses and a thesis, and can be completed in two years of full-time study.

This master is designed to contribute to the development of competent occupational safety and health (OSH) professionals.
A multidisciplinary background is needed to operate successfully in the broad field of OSH. The course therefore incorporates training sessions on the topics and disciplines relevant to OSH. The training focuses not only on OHS issues but also on the development of organizational, managerial and inter-personal skills. Specific study visits are planned to offer direct interaction with experts in the field. Visits to 12 different productive settings in Italy are planned in order to offer direct interaction with experts in the field.

The master course will have three phases, one consisting of 20 weeks online distance learning, another consisting of 11 weeks residential training at the ITC-ILO campus in Turin, Italy and another distance phase of 21 weeks for the preparation of the dissertation.

1st Phase: Preparatory Internet-based distance learning

. This phase includes 370 hours for self-studying and exercises and 180 hours for preparing and submitting the assessments.

Participants will be introduced to the fundamentals and basic concepts of the OSH through the following eight modules:

Module A1: Introduction to the occupational safety and health.

Module A2: Occupational Safety.

Module A3: Occupational Hygiene.

Module A4: Occupational Medicine.

Module A5: Occupational Psychosociology and Ergonomics.

Module A6: National OSH Governance.

Module A7: Organization of OSH at the enterprise level.

Module A8: Participatory approaches for the improvement of the working conditions.

This phase is preparatory. It will enable participants with different levels and fields of knowledge to reach an adequate and homogeneous level for taking advantage of the residential phase.

2nd Phase: Residential phase of Turin

. This phase will include classroom training (315 hours), study visits to selected enterprises and related training sessions (125 hours), and 110 hours of assessment.
Instructors will use lectures, discussions, exercises and other interactive learning activities to strike a balance between theory and practice and to stimulate discussion among the participants and professors. A practical approach based on the analysis and resolution of OSH issues will be taken.

The contents are split into 11 topics (one for each week). The modules in this phase are:

Module 1: Safety techniques.

Module 2: Management competences.

Module 3: Major hazard control.

Module 4: OSH management systems.

Module 5: Physical agents.

Module 6: Occupational hygiene techniques.

Module 7: Occupational toxicology and medicine.

Module 8: Ergonomics.

Module 9: Psychosocial factors & health promotion.

Module 10: Teaching skills.

Module 11: Organization and management

3rd Phase: Preparation of Master thesis

Participants will work individually in their country for the preparation of their Master thesis, assisted at distance by tutors and professors with OSH expertise.

Deadline for Application: 30 June 2015
