About Ergonomics at University of Derby Online Learning

Course code: MJ9AA   Level: 7

This popular and well-established programme was the first online ergonomics masters course to be launched in Europe. As a current or aspiring ergonomist, or a human factors professional, it would give you a significant advantage in your field.

Accredited by your professional body, the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF), it meets their high standards and gives you the opportunity of Graduate Membership which is your first step to registered status as an Ergonomist. Ergonomics promotes a holistic human centred approach; this theme naturally links the modules within the programme. There are modules designed to cover physical and psychological characteristics, ergonomics methods and wider systems issues. You will be able to complete one of three pathways in Ergonomics (Human Factors), Health Ergonomics, and Ergonomics and Organisational Behaviour which are all accredited by the CIEHF and offer you the opportunity to tailor your studies to meet your own career interests.

Our tutors have many years' experience in ergonomics and they understand the pressures of balancing study around work and family commitments.

Flexible enough to fit around you

You can complete this part-time master's course in 3 years. It's really down to you to set the pace and because it's online, you have complete control over when and where you study. Studying online gives you the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. Course modules still operate within a fixed trimester but you can choose to study during the day, in the evenings or at the weekend rather than having to attend fixed lectures.

The online MSc Ergonomics course comprises three progressive stages; Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and MSc:

  • Postgraduate Certificate in Ergonomics you must complete 3 modules (60 credits)
  • Postgraduate Diploma in Ergonomics you must complete a total of  6 modules (120 credits)
  • MSc you must complete 6 modules and the Independent Study project (180 credits).

We would encourage you to complete the full MSc, but if you aren't able to, you can still gain an exit award at each stage: a PG Cert or a PG Dip.
