Course summary

This part-time course is designed to give you human factors and ergonomics experience required in a range of industries.

Overview

The programme is designed to give you the human factors or ergonomics experience 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.

You will be taught by a team who are part of the internationally recognised Human Factors Research group and work as researchers and consultants in ergonomics and can share their experiences of applying ergonomics in the real world.

The terms ergonomics and human factors are used interchangeably to describe the theory and practice of learning about human characteristics and capabilities, and then using that understanding to improve people's interaction with the things they use and with the environments in which they do so.

Ergonomics involves applying scientific information concerning humans to the design of objects, systems and environments for human use. It aims to design objects, systems and tasks in such a way as to improve human safety, health, comfort and performance.

This course has been designed by leading researchers in the field of ergonomics and will give you the skills and experience to apply ergonomics in real world settings. Students receive high levels of support from tutors throughout the course, and distance learning means that students have the flexibility to study when and where it suits them.
