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.
