Introduktion

Ergonomics and Work Environment management enable functional and well-designed work systems, organisations and environments. In this programme, students learn how to plan, design and analyse work environments from a sustainability and performance perspective. With skills in applying occupational safety and health management, our graduates make vital contributions to a healthy and productive working life.

Technology, Work and Health at KTH

This master's programme provides a deeper understanding of the interplay between humans, technology and organisation, from the perspectives of sustainable work and organisational performance. You will gain knowledge and proficiency in proactive occupational safety and health (OSH) management, as well as in planning, designing and analysing work environments. You will acquire advanced theoretical and applied knowledge of physical, cognitive and organisational ergonomics, which is needed to address issues of worker health and work sustainability in all sectors of society. Programme content can be used to develop organisations and processes, focusing on improving work for a more sustainable working life.

The education in the programme is based on blended learning, with both on-campus and distance sessions. Between on-campus meetings, you will study independently or in groups with course projects, as well as scheduled digital or hybridlearning activities. Our ongoing research collaborations with multiple local partners allow you to engage with actual worksites during field trips and project work.

During the first year, students have the opportunity to specialise in either Work Environment Engineering or Human Factors and Ergonomics.

Work Environment Engineering

The Work Environment Engineering coursework includes both theory and practice that allows graduates to identify, measure and evaluate physical, chemical, and biological risks in the workplace, as well as to develop, implement, and evaluate control measures that make the workplace safer. This specialisation also includes coursework in systematic work environment management, leadership, and change management that enables graduates to communicate risks and motivate improvements when proposing workplace solutions. After completing your studies, you will have the relevant knowledge and proficiency to work as a Work Environment Engineer (formerly called Safety Engineer).
