Ergonomics is the science of fitting workplace conditions and job demands, indoors and outdoors, to the capabilities of the working population. The M.S. and Ph.D. 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).​
