Technology, Work and Health at KTH
The programme provides a deeper understanding of the interplay between human, technology and organisation, from the perspectives of sustainable work and organisational performance. As a student, you will gain knowledge and proficiency in proactive occupational safety and health (OSH) management, as well as in how to plan, design and analyse work environments. You will acquire advanced theoretical and applied knowledge of physical, cognitive and organisational ergonomics. This is applicable for work with the development of organisations and processes, with a focus on improvements of work and ergonomic interventions for a sustainable working life.
The education in the programme is based on blended learning. Most of the courses offer teaching on campus over four to five days every three weeks. In between the campus meetings, you will study independently or in groups with course projects and e-learning activities.
During the first year the student has the opportunities to specialise within: Work Environment Engineering (WEE), or Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE).
Work Environment Engineering (WEE)
Work Environment Engineering include elaborations on the theory and practice of technical and physical work environments, as well as organisation and OSH management. This specialisation focuses on the technical work environment, from the organisation of work, via change management and risk assessments, to the effects of the work environment on an organisation’s operational and financial performance. After completion of your studies, you will have suitable knowledge, understanding and proficiency to work as a Work Environment Engineer
Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE)
Human Factors and Ergonomics elaborates further the topics of OSH management and product development, as well as the planning and design of work environments. You will learn how to apply the theory, principles, data and methods to design work environments and works systems for human well-being and overall system performance. After completion of your studies, you will have suitable knowledge and proficiency to work as a Human Factors Specialist or Ergonomist.
