Ergonomics & Human Factors


The Student Graduate Advisory Committee will design a program of study with a minimum set of courses as listed below, plus a set of additional courses as deemed necessary. The committee will take into consideration the student’s background, objectives, and special educational needs that will better prepare the student for conducting his dissertation research. The Advisory Committee will closely monitor the student’s progress to ensure that all requirements have been met.

The Ph.D. requirements will consist of a minimum of 48 credit hours of course- work beyond the master’s degree, with a minimum of 12 credit hours devoted to dissertation research. (A typical program may require 36 credits hours of course work and 12 credit hours of dissertation research beyond the master’s degree.)

These credits will be expected to include the following courses or equivalent. If the student completed any of these courses as requirements for the master’s degree, substitute courses may be selected with the approval of the Advisory Committee.

Each student in Ph.D. program in Ergonomics has to take and pass 5 qualifying exams in the following areas: Ergonomics and Human Factors, Industrial Hygiene, Safety Engineering, Biomechanics, and Statistics & Regression analysis.
