      Do you want to be involved in the development of future products and workplaces with users in focus to minimize stress and work injuries and optimise comfort and ergonomics?

      About the programme

      During the program, you will learn to use digital technology and virtual tools to evaluate ergonomics, but also customize technology and systems based on the capabilities and limitations of different users.

      The Focus of Your Studies

      The program provides overall knowledge in the field of Virtual product realisation, but also specific knowledge of how to integrate ergonomics and user aspects into the product realisation process.

      The first part of the education introduces the subject Industrial Ergonomics, including current research questions, and presents and discusses a number of industrial paradigm. This first part also deals with how computer-based tools like CAD and CAE are used and act as decision support systems in the product realisation process. During the second semester, you will read an in-depth course in how ergonomics can be used to evaluate and improve the physical ergonomics of products and workstations. At the same time, you will develop your evaluation skills and your approach through a course in research methodology and communication. With the final degree project you have the opportunity to showcase your advanced abilities and skills.

      Upon Completion of Your Studies

      A central part of the program is about using digital tools for evaluating ergonomics in the design process, something that industry is looking for and the labour market looks very bright for engineers with skills in ergonomics and design. Several studies show that companies today have difficulty recruiting competent employees in the area.

      After graduating, you are also eligible to start postgraduate studies in Information Technology.
