What is Ergonomics?
Ergonomics is the science of fitting workplace conditions and job demands, indoors and outdoors, to the capabilities of the working population.
Colorado State University has an established Interdisciplinary Ergonomics Training Program open to students with backgrounds in the fields of Psychology, Engineering and Occupational Health.
The Program, directed by Dr. John Rosecrance, draws on faculty expertise and resources available in the Departments of Psychology (Industrial/Organizational Psychology) and Health and Exercise Science (Occupational Biomechanics).
The MS and PhD curriculum in Ergonomics follows the Ergonomist Formation Model as outlined by the International Ergonomics Association (IEA) and adopted as the fundamental architecture for professional competence in ergonomics by the Board of Certification in Professional Ergonomics (BCPE).
