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.Apply Now

Michael Donohoe, MBA
I chose to study online because of the flexibility. The ability to work out of hours and over weekends meant that the impact at work and home was kept to a bare minimum. I would not have been able to study any other way.
I feel that my personal approach in business is much more 'holistic' as a result of my studies at the University of Derby Online Learning. I feel much more confident as a person; it’s a great feeling.
