The Ergonomics Training Program at Colorado State University was established to provide comprehensive and interdisciplinary training in occupational ergonomics. The program leads to an M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences (ERHS) with a focus area in occupational ergonomics. Students in the focus area take coursework in ergonomic principles, ergonomic design, industrial and organizational psychology, injury epidemiology, safety, occupational health, statistics, and biomechanics of human motion. The Program faculty has extensive backgrounds in ergonomic design, engineering, occupational health psychology, safety, and the health sciences. A significant feature on the Ergonomics Training Program is the interdisciplinary collaboration for student research and coursework.
Students accepted into the NIOSH supported training program in ergonomics typically receive support from one to three years depending on the availability of training stipends and research grants. Fellowships, contracts, and grants often support doctoral students. Working together, the program faculty will select the most qualified students for entrance in the Ergonomics Training Program.
