Course content

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.
