The training program consists of a 36 hour Master's degree program in the Department of Industrial Engineering. The program includes 33 semester credit hours of course work and 3 hours of internship in an industrial or health care related facility. Research areas included musculoskeletal injuries, occupational stress, and design for older workers and special populations. Recent faculty publications were listed.
