We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Ergonomics equip postgraduates with skills to design efficient equipment and systems which manage the interface between people and machines.
Taught MSc courses are typical for the field, though research-oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Design Technology or Planning.
Courses in this field trainask you to explore consider human factors within the design process of various day-to-day facilities and equipment. From transport planning to designing office equipment, you can explore a range of applications for your expertise.
You will explore theories surrounding human-computer interaction, machine interaction and interpersonal communicationThe aim of these courses is to help you understand the importance of, to develop practices which effectively assist the needs of individuals, populations and economies. Studies include analysis of theories surrounding human-computer interaction, machine interaction and interpersonal communication.
This includes methodologies for occupational health and safety, as well as community care, and environmental sustainability. For example, you may investigate the means to maximise productivity in the workplace by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort through systems design.
Industrial applications for these masters include driver and vehicle ergonomics, patient handling and inclusive product design. You may also explore legislative roles such as public policy or regulation.
