Courses

Courses in the LTH master's engineering program and the School of Industrial Design

In Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology, the course portfolio touches on various aspects of interaction between people, technology, and organization. Courses include fields such as workplace and health, organization and leadership, airborne particles and health hazards, virtual reality and interaction design, risk and safety management or thermal environment.

You find current courses under the various headings below. Links lead to the courses’ syllabi on the LTH course website.

Airborne particles and health

What particles are found in the air and what happens when we inhale them? Increased knowledge about air pollution in the form of airborne particles is growing in importance. Greater awareness of what healthy air is – both indoors and outdoors – is important in our daily lives, but also when we address societal challenges such as sustainable cities, clean energy production and reduced impact on the climate.

Virtual reality and interaction design

The courses provide an understanding of interaction design and include user centred design processes as well as actual design of digital technology. With technologies such as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, we can simulate environments and social situations with a high degree of realism – skills which are increasingly important. The courses provide an understanding of how we use new technology – how people and technology interact.

Risk and safety management

These courses provide knowledge about risk and safety management in work environments and in safety-critical systems. The interplay between people, technology, and organization (Human factors) is a central starting point in the field.

Thermal environment

How does the climate, different temperatures and the surrounding environments affect human health, performance, comfort and well being? What significance does our behaviour, choice of clothing and protective equipment have on our health? Knowledge in the field of thermal environment is becoming increasingly important in a world of climate change.
