Industrial Hygiene

Program overview

As one of the leading industrial hygiene programs in the country, this program offers opportunities for students to gain useful work experience through class projects at local businesses and knowledge of the field through coursework taught by experienced faculty. The curriculum encourages students to take courses in related disciplines to ensure that they have a broad knowledge base in occupational safety and health fields such as toxicology, occupational health psychology, ergonomics, and safety. 

The Industrial Hygiene Program is located at Colorado State University. The Mountain & Plains Education and Research Center (MAP ERC) financially supports qualified students in the program. The MAP ERC is one of 18 National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) Education and Research Centers in the country. Students supported by the center collaborate with trainees in ergonomics, occupational and environmental medicine, occupational health psychology, and health physics programs on interdisciplinary research, scholarly projects, and in-depth field assessments at local industry sites.
