Courses in this group focus on ergonomics and occupational safety. Over 260 Masters and 90 Ph.D. students have graduated specializing in Occupational Safety Engineering and Ergonomics (OSE). The Masters degree is intended for students who hold a bachelor’s degree in engineering or physical science. Most students can complete the OSE option in 10-16 months. Students have flexibility in selecting course work to match specific interests, including cognitive ergonomics, physical ergonomics, safety engineering, and safety management. Those wishing to pursue a Ph.D. degree will find that the M.S. program provides excellent preparation.

For engineers interested in working in the fast-emerging healthcare engineering field, a concentration in healthcare engineering is an asset. U-M’s Center for Healthcare Engineering & Patient Safety benefits from close partnership and proximity to the University of Michigan Health System. Students that choose to pursue a concentration in healthcare engineering can leverage this in their future career. This concentration requires additional and separate application after acceptance into the IOE MS program, application and additional info can be found here: https://cheps.engin.umich.edu/concentration-heps/
