The industrial hygiene program at Tulane University, School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine (SPHTM) offer masters and doctorate degrees. The program was established in 1980 and accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) in 1998. The Industrial Hygiene program is comprehensive and includes core courses from various public health disciplines. The purpose of the Industrial Hygiene program at Tulane University is to provide industrial hygiene training for candidates enabling them to seek employment in government, labor, the private sector, and in academia. After completion of the program, the industrial hygiene students have the knowledge and skills to seek careers as occupational health professionals. Many of our graduates are now employed in industry, government, consulting, and academia. The program has a sound reputation for producing quality graduates. Through the support of the NIOSH training project grant program we were able to support trainees pursuing degrees in industrial hygiene. The training project grant played a significant role in increasing the number of minority and disadvantaged students in the field of industrial hygiene. The project was administered through Tulane University's on-campus industrial hygiene program.
